This diskette contains the files listed in "DISKETTE.FLS"
Place the diskette in the A: diskette drive and enter "A:M".

PCSIG diskette # 593 named "GANTT" contains the program GANTT and
a limited demonstration version of "SCHEDULE".

This diskette contains updates to GANTT (now version 1.3) along with a new
BIG GANTT function which can be used in conjunction with a sideways printing
program (not included). Double high print is now supported for printers which
support the double high function (IBM Pro-Printer II or beyond).

SCHEDULE is no longer crippled. It is version 1.2 and is equivalent to the
commercial version except that the capacity is limited and the support files
are setup for a diskette rather than a hard disk. The license provides for
free distribution for educational use but not for commercial use.
The commercial version is available from HITT Personal Software at $295 per
single system license.

Our intent is to provide a free (distribution cost) package which can be
freely copied for students in the academic environment and at the same time
provide a commercial version with direct commercial level support.
