The Alpha program alphabetizes a list of persons' names in the follwing format:

Alastname, Afirst Amiddle
A2last, A2first A2middle

Blast, Bfirst Bmiddle

.........
.........


.........
.........

.........
.........


.........
.........

Zlast, Zfirst Zmiddle

Total # of Names : xx


Unlike most alphabetizing routines, This program is not case sensitive, and it
ignores all non-alphabetic characters. Therefore, the program does a true
alphabetical sort, where "McDermott" is equal to "Mcdermott."

The list is stored in an ASCII file called NAMES. Form Feed Control Codes are
inserted so that you can directly print the file with DOS's Print feature.
Of course, if you so desire, you can customize the file with a text editor or
wordprocessor prior to printing.

The program was written in Turbo Pascal 3.0, copyright (c)1983 by Borland
