* CM_EDITR -- Version 3.10 *
Definition of Shareware. . .
Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software
before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue
using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs
differ on details -- some request registration while others
require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With
registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue
using the software to an updated program with printed manual.
Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software,
and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific
exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished
programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are
of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs
and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of
distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy
and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a
specific group. For example, some authors require written
permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their
Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You
should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook,
whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes
fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy.
And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware
has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the
product, you don't pay for it.
Ombudsman Statement. . .
This program program is produced by a member of the Association of
Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware
principle works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related
problem with an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be
able to help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem
with an ASP member, but does not provide technical support for members'
products. Please write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskegon,

The evaluation version of CM_EDITR is offered at no charge to any

incentive for programmers to continue to develop new products.

CM_EDITR after a 30-day trial period, you must make a registration
payment of $8. Checks may be made payable to Charles F. Martin or
NoVaSoft. You are entitled to have as many copies of it as you wish (for
example, one on each computer you use at home and work, plus one for your
briefcase), with the understanding that these
are for YOUR personal use and demonstration to others. Please recognize
that this is a CONSIDERABLY relaxed condition on copying and usage than
some authors specify. It is done for YOUR convenience.
