Output of file : READTHIS.1ST contained in archive : SLEDMOUS.ZIP

Contains a menu system for logitech mouse (3 button) using the sled
public domain editor (which is similar to IBM's Personal Editor).
The menu system allows you to use the editor without really learning all
the commands.

The left mouse button is used to bring up a popup type menu which has most
of the sled commands on it and is a help for the non-obvious editor commands.
The help screen is also on this menu. Use this to learn the key commands
as you work with the editor. The middle mouse button is used for block
and line mark edit commands. Practice with it and you will be able to use
the cursor to mark, copy, move and delete text, all with the mouse.

The right mouse button simply enters an ESC character. It could be modified
for use later. Be sure to modify the click.src file by inserting the line:

sled menu 3buttons

You should then execute the newclick procedure. You also need to execute the
newmenu procedure to compile the sled.def into a menu file by typing:

newmenu sled

You may copy and distribute the sldmouse.arc file (with both this file and
sled.def) without restriction except that the distribution cannot be
distributed commercially. By using this package, the user acknowledges the
fact that the author will not be responsible for any damages caused by the
use or misuse of this product. Remember, both files must be included if
this package is distributed further.

If you like the package, there are others available. These include a version
which can be used to develop a menu system for Personal Editor, a version for
Procomm, a version which can be used as a DOS interface, and a version for
Turbo Pascal 4.0. These are all available. Send a disk (5-1/4 inch only)
with a return self addressed, stamped envelop to the address below.

Remember, a small donation would be appreciated.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
