DOCs for DateLine v1.10 (c) 1993 by Glen Neal.
First let me say that, as with most programmers, I am much better at
writing programs than the docs for them. This is my second windows
project, and I hope to get better as time goes on. However, it is a
simple program and requires very little docs anyway.
Rock Box requires Windows 3.1 and Soundblaster (or compatible) is optional.
A mouse is required. Keyboard support will be added later.
DateLine runs in the upper-left corner of the Windows screen.
Here are the operation of the three buttons:
A : About DateLine, shows the version number.
C : Configure. At the left are check boxes for selecting which items of text
you wish to display. On the right you can set up the chime (requires
Soundblaster). You can turn the chime off, or select a each hour, or
select a chime each ? minutes, just type in the minutes between chimes.
If Randomize is not checked, it plays only the one wave file you type in
the edit box at the bottem. If Randomize is checked, it will play all the
waves in the path indicated, in order. If you type a path with no wave file,
the path must include a trailing backslash.
X : Exits the program at once.
That's about it!

If you get the message about not finding BWCC.DLL, then you need to call
and get BWCCDLL.ZIP, unzip it and place it in your Windows System folder.
Other windows programs may need this DLL also. It is similar to the DLL
used by Visual Basic, VBRUN200.DLL.
If it says a sound driver is not installed, go to the Windows control
panel, and run the Sounds icon. Select ADD, and pick a Soundblaster
driver that is for your card version. I will add support for other sound
cards and the pc speaker soon.
Please call the support bbs if you have problems or discover a bug(!).
