License Information: You are granted license to use AreaCodes 1.1 (hereafter known as "the software") for a period of 30 days without obligation. If you use the software after that time, you must register. Registration will give you license to use the software on a single computer. If you choose not to register, you must cease to use the software, and you must destroy all copies of the software in your possession.

Registration: You may register a copy of AreaCodes 1.1 for a fee of $10.00. Registration entitles you to an official copy of the software (i.e. no registration reminders!) which you will receive by U.S. mail on a floppy disk. In addition, you will be informed by mail of any upgrades, and will be able to purchase upgrades for a minimal postage, handling, and materials fee. This shall apply to all subsequent versions of the software, so you do not have to purchase every upgrade of the software to maintain your right to this "registered user" discount. Furthermore, you will be entitled to free support by phone (except for the phone company's long distance charges), U.S mail, or by Compuserve mail.

Files Included:
AREACODE.EXE The executable.
AREACODE.HLPThe online help file.
AREACOD0.DATA data file.
REGISTER.WRIA registration form. If you choose to register, please print and use this form.
AREACODE.WRIWhat you're reading now.

Also Required (but may not be included):
QPRO.DLLA dynamic link library containing many of the routines that comprise the program. NOTE: if you received your copy of AreaCodes from Compuserve, this file will not be included in this package and you must download it separately if you don't already have it. This is done to reduce file size, since most of the FileBoy programs use this DLL. Copies are available on Compuserve in the WINADV forum under the name FBRUN.ZIP.

IMPORTANT: If you redistribute the program, you are required to include all the files in the original package without modifications, additions, or deletions of any kind, with ONE EXCEPTION: if you received this package from Compuserve and wish to pass it on to a friend or upload it to your local BBS, PLEASE include the QPRO.DLL file in the package you pass on, since the program will not run without it.

Requirements and SetUp: FileBoy's AreaCodes 1.1 was written in Visual Basic and thus requires that the runtime dynamic link library, VBRUN100.DLL, be located in your WINDOWS or WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory, or in a directory listed in your DOS path. This is true of any Visual Basic program. Copies of the library may be obtained from Compuserve, in the MSBASIC forum, or from any good BBS that features Windows programs.

The other necessary dynamic link library, QPRO.DLL, must also be located in one of the Windows directories or a directory on your DOS path. It is suggested that you keep it in the same directory as VBRUN100.DLL.

The executable, AREACODE.EXE, and the 3 data files, AREACODx.DAT, are required for the correct operation of AreaCodes, and may be placed in a directory of your choice, but they MUST all be in the same directory.

The online help file, AREACODE.HLP, is not required for operation and is for user convenience only. However, if you choose to use it, it must be placed in the same directory with the executable and data files.

Description: FileBoy's AreaCodes 1.1, a member of the FileBoy family of utilities for Windows 3.0, is an area code database which supports all area codes, as of this date, in the U.S., Canada, and the U.S. Caribbean islands. The basic program comes with listings for approximately 600 major cities, but unlike most other area code utilities, AreaCodes 1.1 is user expandable: cities and area codes may be added, edited, or deleted according to the needs of the user and/or additions made by the phone company.

Features and Operation: AreaCodes 1.1 consists of four scollable windows which support searching by Code, State, or City. A mouse is suggested but not required.

* Clicking on an area code in the Search by Code box automatically scrolls the associated state (highlighted) into view in the Search by State box, and displays a list of cities which match the area code in the Search by City box and, in the Area Code box, the area codes associated with those cities.

* Clicking on an item in the Search by State window will display ALL in-state cities in the Search by City box and the area codes associated with those cities in the Area Code box.

* Clicking on a particular city will indicate its area code. Highlighting is used to indicate matches.

* Data of various sorts (depending on what is highlighted) may be copied to the Clipboard via the Copy to Clipboard item in the Files menu. In addition, the Clipboard itself can be run from this menu. See the following table for a description of what will be copied.

Select Item In:Result
Search by CodeCopies the area code and state.
Search by StateCopies the state and all associated cities and area codes.
Search by CityCopies the city, state, and area code.
Area Code " " " " " " " .

* 3 data files are used by the program, each containing state, city, and area code information in different formats. These files may be edited via the Edit, Add, and Delete items in the File menu. These operations are transparent to the user and no special interaction with these files is otherwise necessary. In fact, it is highly recommended that you do not edit them in any other fashion (such as loading into a text editor) since the correct format in each file must be maintained in order for the program to run successfully.

* Automatic data file back-up after editing (optional via menu item).

* Full online help is supplied in the form of a standard Windows help file. Consult this file for more information on AreaCodes.
