Stop searching through your floppies or hard disk trying to locate
specific files.

MASTERFILE can describe the contents of a file without having to use
the application that created the file, determine what each file is, and
give a unique description of each file or group of files -- up to 75
characters long.

Search for your files by name or description. Print a hard copy of
your disk library with these descriptions.


Disk No  981
Program Title: MASTERFILE version 1.2
PC-SIG version 1.2
MASTERFILE is a disk file-cataloging program that lets you locate files
on your floppies or hard disk by name or description without having to
search every floppy or subdirectory.
With MASTERFILE you can view a catalogue that describes the contents of
a file without having to use the program (word processor, spreadsheet)
that created the file.  The program lets you give any file a unique
description, or you can select a group of files and give these files a
common description.
MASTERFILE lets you add a seventy-five-character description to your
disk files (including hidden and system files), no matter what program
created them.  It can also print the catalog of the disks, giving you a
hardcopy of your catalog.
Limitations of this shareware version:
Shareware version begins with a request to register, delaying immediate
use of program by 5 seconds. Two other features are not enabled: one to
delete files from a directory, and one to remove a directory entirely.
These two features are of minor interest and are not a fundamental part of
the program. They are there for convenience more than anything else.
Usage:  Disk Management System.
