WHATIS v1.2 Copyright (c) 1989-1990, J.E. Smith, All rights reserved.

USAGE: WHATIS filename[.ext] (i.e. WHATIS whatis)

WHATIS reads a file and tries to determine what language and compiler was used
to create it. It can identify the following: Turbo C, Microsoft C, Lattice C,
Datalight/Zortech C, Turbo BASIC, Quick BASIC and Turbo Pascal (v3 and
before). Quick C is not distinguished from Microsoft C. Also, programs
compressed with Bellard's LZEXE.EXE are so noted.

If extension is omitted, the program will look for a .COM file first, if no
match is found it will then look for an .EXE file.

Please copy and share this program with others. For a contribution of $5,
I will send the latest version of WHATIS and demos of MY MONEY(tm) and
MY TIME(tm).
