** EXT.EXE v2.0 **

EXT is a file search and display utility for DOS. I use it for
searching through BBS "allfiles" lists, but I'm sure there could be other
uses.
EXT will search through a text format file looking for the word
you give it a the command line. When the word is found, it will write
the entire string to a file.

This version is an updated v1.0 with some new stuff added. Version
1.0 had a bug which would cause it to eject from some files prematurely
(grin). This should be fixed now. I added two features from version 1:

- Strings found matching the search criteria are displayed to
the screen.

- Adding the /p switch will prompt you to write the string found
to the target file, or skip it.

The "Syntax" for EXT is: EXT [textfile] [word] [target] [/p]

textfile: is the file to search.
word : the word to search for.
target : can be PRN, LPT1, or a dos filename (to write to).
/p : prompt for a write-to-target or continue searching.
