Contents of the READ.ME file


*****************************************************************************
NOTE: This is version 1.5 of the editor. Versions 1.36 and 1.4 did NOT work
remotely. In an attempt to optimize the slow screen output, I introduced a
bug that kept output from being redirected, hence causing the program to
fail when run remote. I am sorry for the problems.
*****************************************************************************

This is a MS-DOS generic editor. By generic I mean that it
only uses standard MS-DOS calls/interrupts, and makes no direct calls to
the machines bios routines. Also, for it to work properly, ansi.sys (or
the equivalent) must be installed.

NOTE that to run the editor, the only file required is the editor itself.
None of the other files are required for the editor to operate.

Files included here:

em.com the editor
emconfig.com configuration program

Keyboard definition files.

emkey.def sample key definition file
wskey.def WordStar (tm) like key definition file
mykey.def empty key definition file to work with

Other files:

em.doc documentation
em.hlp help file
quick.hlp list of commands
read.me this file
order.frm handy order form

Note that as shipped, EM uses the "special" keys on the IBM keyboard for
many of its commands. If you will be running EM in an environment that
does NOT allow or recognize these commands, then configure EM with the
wskey.def key file, or better yet, make up your own.
