List of Modifications to the Simply Help! package

01/01/92 - Released Version 1.05 to FoxNet BBS

12/28/91 - Had a great Christmas! Created a second library called SHELPB.LIB
which includes only the BASIC modules. This library is for
people who own Crescent's QuickPak Pro and PDQ only.

12/18/91 - Rewrote the Basic library to include network support and
text highlighting. You must tell the routines to use network
support by setting the "Error Flag" variable to -99 before
calling the routine. File are then opened as read only with
full sharing. NOTE: The number of parameters in the SHelpOvr(M)
routines has been changed to allow a highlight color.

12/15/91 - The compiler had a bug that caused the system to hang when
compiling very large files. Added extra error checking so the
compiler will hopefully exit gracefully when things get too tight.

12/14/91 - The "Use Color" option in the program options dialog box is now
extended to work when testing your source file. This will let
you see what your EXE or TSR file will look like when running
on a monochrome system.

12/12/91 - A bug in one of the assembler routines caused the editor and
all viewers to crash with a Divide Overflow error when running
on a hercules system (Mode 7) with a mouse. This is now fixed.
Thanks to Ward Yelverton for pointing out this problem.

12/10/91 - Simply Help files now support highlighted text within your
screens. Each screen can use any highlight color and it is
set in the "Edit Screen Attributes" dialog box. To highlight
text you use the "Color Switch" character within your text.
Each time this character is used the color is switched between
the normal text color and the highlight color.

12/08/91 - You can now run SHED from anywhere on your system and it will
know how to find the compiler and the other files it needs. This
works with DOS 3 or higher. You can also specify an environment
variable "SH" to provide the proper path to the files as follows.

SET SH=C:\SHLP

12/06/91 - When setting the size or position of a screen you can now move to
the bottom and right edges of the screen. This allows you to use
80 x 25 screens. The shadow is not displayed if the screen goes
past column 78 or line 24.

11/24/91 - Added network support to viewers. The compile dialog box in SHED
now contains a check box to include network support. This will
allow multiple users to access the same EXE or TSR file at the
same time. You must have DOS 3 or higher and run the DOS program
SHARE.EXE or have network software installed for this to work.
The compiler was modified to support the new viewers.

All viewers now include the code for mouse support. This was
done to keep the number of different viewers down. If you do not
select mouse support in the compile dialog box the mouse support
will be disabled even if one is detected.

Updated manual and related files. Please note the new mailing
address.

-------- Working on another program....

06/17/91 - Added the SHELP.BI include file.

06/16/91 - The run time Simply Help! library (SHELP.LIB) is now included as
part of the shareware package. The quick library is no longer
included but a batch file (QUICKLIB.BAT) is provided which
allows you to create the proper quick library for your version
of QuickBasic.

06/13/91 - Rewrote text expansion routine in assembler. The assembler
routine saved 400 bytes and is 58 times faster than the same
routine in basic! This routine was used 7 times in the package
so it was well worth the effort.

- Reduced the size of all viewers by about 1k each by fine tunning.

05/30/91 - First shareware release of program to Foxnet BBS. (Ver 1.00)
