INSTRUCTIONS FOR OCTOBER 1990 DISK OF THE MONTH


NOTE: The following macros (files with the extension .WPM) must be copied
into the directory where your other macro files are kept. WARNING! If you
already have macros with the same name, you must rename the macros found on
this disk before they are copied onto your hard drive or your original macros
will be overwritten. Some of these files are styles (files with the extension
.STY). For 5.1, copy the style files into the directory specified in Setup
(Shift-F1), (6) Location of Files, (5) Style Files. For 5.0, copy the styles
files into your default directory. All other document files should be copied
to your default directory.

Included on this disk are the following files that work for 5.0 and 5.1 where

EDIT.STY (see below). To invoke the macro, press (Alt-S). The cursor
will be on the Styles menu ready for you to make a selection. (See
"Getting Started with Styles," October '90, p63.)

EDIT.STY (5.0/5.1 style library) - This style library contains four styles,
BASIC.STY, DOUBLE.STY, HANGING.STY and TITLE.STY. They are saved under
one filename, EDIT.STY. The Basic style formats a letter with 1.5"

with a double indent and a 10-point font. The Hanging style formats text
in a double spaced hanging indent. The Title style inserts an 18-point
font and centers the text. Pressing (Enter) will turn the title style
off. To retrieve these styles, either press (Alt-S) (see above), or
press Style (Alt-F8), (7) Retrieve, type edit.sty and press (Enter). To
select, highlight the desired style and press (Enter). To edit the
styles, retrieve EDIT.STY, highlight the appropriate style, press (4)

At the Styles menu press (6) Save, type edit.sty, press (Enter) and
answer (Y) to replace. (See "Getting Started with Styles," October '90,
p63.)

The table will expand according to the size of your secondary file. This
file contains the necessary merge codes to create a roll or roster when
merged with a secondary file. To merge, press Merge/Sort (Ctrl-F9), (1)
Merge, enter roll.pri as the primary file and roll.sec (see below) as the
secondary file. The merged document, a table with a name in each row,

this file, press Retrieve (Shift-F10), type roll.pri and press (Enter).
Make the necessary changes, then Save (F10) and replace the file. (See

You may wish to print this list for future reference. You can
temporarily turn off the COMMANDS keyboard by pressing CTRL-6, then turn
it back on again by pressing CTRL-6 twice. That may be helpful to you if
you need to insert a control character (e.g., {}) into a macro. (See
"Macro-Making Macros," October '90 p15.)

MONITOR.WPM (5.1 format) - This macro monitors everything you type, keeping
track of your two most recent keystrokes at all times. If you press two
hyphens(--) it deletes them and inserts an em-dash (þ), which is more
typographically correct. The macro will also replace two spaces with a
single space, to correct the common problem of pressing (Space Bar) twice
after the end of sentences. Finally, if you press your period key twice,
the macro will insert ellipses points with hard spaces between them, so
that the ellipses points cannot be broken up at a line break. To invoke
this macro, press Macro (Alt-F10), type monitor and press (Enter). To
turn the macro off, press (Ctrl-Break). (See "Macro-Making Macros,"
October '90 p15.)

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
