I grant the programs run and sched to the public domain.



DESCRIPTION
-----------

With the combination of the programs run and sched, it is possible
to start any program written for Microsoft Windows, from a windowed
DOS prompt.

Add the following line into the section [windows] in win.ini:
load=sched.exe

To start a windows program, just type at the DOS prompt:
run windows_program [parameters] [&]

The optional & symbol indicates the program will run minimized.



SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
-------------------

You must run Windows in 386 enhanced mode.




HISTORY
-------

Version 0.9: Beta release.

Version 1.0: Initial release.

Version 1.1: Cosmetic changes. From now on error messages will be given
by system modal dialog boxes.

Version 1.2: Critical sections of the program run are protected against
task switches. However the chance of an error caused by a task
switch within a critical section, is extremely small.

Version 1.3: Critical sections of the program run are protected against
control-breaks. However the chance of an error caused by a
control-break within a critical section, is extremely small.

Version 1.4: Code is added to the program run, which will give an error
message if the scheduler is not loaded.

Version 1.5: Removal of a minor bug in the extra code added in version 1.4.

Version 1.6: Test on the existing of the environment variable TEMP is added.
Sampling time at which the scheduler is scanning for jobs is
changed.

Version 1.7: The source is modified to be compiled at warning level 3 of
Microsoft C 7.0. The code added in version 1.4 is removed again,
because it did not work properly when compiled with Microsoft
C 7.0. (It was too time consuming.)

Version 1.8: Removal of a bug preventing sched from changing the default
drive.



HOW TO FIND THE VERSION NUMBER
