MarginText III
Copyright 1989
Ron Prewitt

Version 3.0

MarginText will reformat an ASCII text file to any width between 20
to 80 characters. All blank lines will be deleted and paragraphs will
be indented three spaces automatically. The program will ask if the
output file is to be used as input for ColumnText. This will
automatically place a + as the first character of a line that is the
last line of a paragraph to suppress right justification if it is a
short line.

USING THE PROGRAM:

First you should have the following files:

README.DOC - Documentation

MT30.EXE -MarginText program


The program will ask for the input text file name and a file name for
the reformatted text file.

You will then be asked for the margin width. Use (28), (34) or (60) if

the new file is to be used by ColumnText; otherwise use anything
between (20) and (80). This beats having to use a Word Processor to
reformat a text file.

Next select whether the new text file will be used by ColumnText.

The program will now read in your text file and write out a new text
file with the new margin width.

If you have any problems or suggestions for enhancements please let
me know.
