AMAC DESCRIPTION: Amac contain approximately 450 QEdit macros., uploaded to SemWare, is split into four files as
Amac43(a+b+c+d).zip. Amac can also be found on CompuServe Ibmapp
Lib 0 as and later as Amac3(e+f...).zip, Exec-PC
(414-789-4210) and New-Ware (619-450-3257 or 455-5226).

The latest Amac files and macros can be obtained by downloading
either or Amac43(a+b+c+d). Any files changed and new
macros added since is issued will be found later in
the modification files Amac43(e+f...).zip.

Macros are grouped into files, wherever possible, by relative
functionality. A description and running instructions for each
group of macros is in a txtfile with subscript '.qm'. Qmac
compiled macros are in files with subscript '.mac'. At the top
of macro txtfile is an index of macros from which topics which
can be jumped to within the current file using @h, or @4 in
BOOKxx.QM. Macros located in subfiles are enclosed with braces
in the index and can quickly be jumped to using @f bok001.qm. A
list of macro txtfiles is in INDXxx.QM.

The user is advised to read BOOK24.QM first since
requires many files be configured with the user's directory
containing the Amac files. After configuring, the simplest way
to load a macro for execution, for example BOOK24.MAC, is to type
"START BOOK" . All pertinent files will be loaded in the
"Ring" for viewing, and BOOK24.MAC is read. A brief description
of all macros is in ALLMACRO.INF. The other new techniques for
loading and executing macros are described in BOOK24.QM.

For running and conversion of these macros, "QEdit and Qmac v2.1,
Feb. 1990" or later are required. Some macros require "QEdit and
Qmac v2.15.

PROBLEMS or SUGGESTIONS: Any problems or suggestion, I would like
to hear from you. I can be reached daily on SemWare.

DECRYPTING MACRO @f: The Amac macros are FREE. However, if you
find them useful and would like to send me a gift of any amount,
I will be glad to accept it. Macro @f in bok001.qm I feel is by
far the most useful of all the Amac macros and, although it's
really not very complicated, it represents some new ideas and is
the culmination of a lot of work. You will find @f an extremely
useful and a powerful tool to help navigate through the Amac
files. This is the only encrypted macro in Amac, and there are
no encrypted files, as in earlier versions of Amac, in order to
accommodate some Sysop's requests.

I'll be happy to send you the Password to decrypt @f if you
will send me $15.00 (or any amount) in a self addressed stamped
envelope. If you don't have $15.00 or don't think these macros
are worth it, I'll still be glad to send you the Password. Just
send me a self addressed stamped envelope anyhow! If you would
rather not lick two stamps, use and enjoy the other 400+
non-encrypted macros in My address is:

I hope you find some of these macros useful. If you are a
serious QEdit user, I think you will. Thanks for using Amac.

PASSWORD FOR AMAC43.ZIP: Users having the password for
should change "2" to "3" for the password to decrypt macro @f in
bok001.qm. See bok001.qm for instructions how to decrypt @f.
