Concept: To help you catalog your CDs and assist you in printing catalogs, listings and labels for the case and front of the CD. There are entries for CD Number, Title, Artist, Artist, and up to 10 Tunes on each side as well as Category. Getting Started: DO NOT INSTALL THE PROGRAM IF YOU ARE ALREADY USING IT SEE THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO UPGRADE THE PROGRAM First you must install the data files on your data disk. To do this copy all files with the extension .DAT and .NTX onto the drive you wish to use for data. ie COPY *.DAT A: Once you have completed this copy all files from this disk onto your floppy or hard disk. Type in CDMSTR to start. The System: Is designed using KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) so not much information is needed to get started. Here are a few notes to help you use the system: The Data Entry Screens: Any of the data entry screens shown in Add, Update, or Delete can be 'zipped' through. When deleting just hit page down to confirm that you want to delete that Title or CD. Close 'Nuf: By entering 55 on the Update or Delete screens you will be prompted to enter the title of the Feature you wish to deal with. You do not have to enter the full title, only the first few words, or even letters. In Update this will allow you to view all the records that are Close 'Nuf to what you entered. EXAMPLE: Entering "Meet" will bring up "Meet John Doe", "Meet The Beatles" and "Meet Me In St. Louis" The Labels: Are printed for 3" X 15/16" pinfed labels. Experiment with your printer for alignment before printing your whole collection. When asked for a from and to CD Number remember that these numbers are inclusive ie if you enter 1 to 4 it will print 1,2,3, and 4. Run Speed Up Sort first. The Case Labels: Are printed on standard paper and have cut out lines for cutting them to the correct size. Run Speed Up Sort first. Tune List: Will list all Tunes, CD Number and Artist. Unless you have very few CDs you will need a Hard Drive to use this feature. Find Me!: Can help you find all of the CDs in the data file that have a particular Artist as well as Title or even a single Tune. Using "Close 'Nuff" you can Find! any record easily, ie enter as much information as you remember and it will search based on your input, even if it is only one letter. NOTE: Page Up on these data display screens will take you back to the previous record, page down to the next record and Home to the Find Me! menu. Speed Up Sort: Should be run occasionally to keep the files in sequential order as well as random order. Always run prior to printing Case Inserts, Labels, 3X5 and Roladex Cards. Purge Ghosts: This feature should be run if you get blank records in your data file, by accident. File Name: Any eight character filename allowed. Reserved name is TEMP. Data Drive: You can choose a default data drive on the Colour menu. Exit To DOS: You can exit temporarily to DOS by using that option on the Utilities Menu. The file COMMAND.COM must be on the same directory or disk as the other program files to do this. You must return to the subdirectory/drive of CDMASTER prior to entering EXIT to return to the program. Colours: Are as follows: Color Letter ------------------ Black N Blue B Green G Cyan BG Red R Magenta RB Brown GR White W ------------------ Error Messages: Error Messages will appear at the top of the screen when an error occurs. The most common errors are "Open" which means the program can't find the data files and "Printer not ready". You will be given the choice of correcting the problem or aborting. Upgrading From Previous Versions (Available to Registered Users Only): Because the data structure is different from version 2.00 version 5.00 it will be necessary to utilize the UPGRADE program that is included on a separate disk to keep any data that you already have entered. Insert the UPGRADE disk in drive A and enter UPGRADE, then hit the return key. When instructed, remove the UPGRADE disk and insert the CDMASTER program disk. The program menu will then appear, after entering 1 or 2 the computer will request you enter the location of the data or program files that you wish to upgrade. If you are using a floppy system, just enter the drive letter and hit the return key. If you are using a hard drive, enter the drive letter AND the sub directory. ie C:\CDMSTR (Leave off the final backslash). The program will automatically upgrade the program and data files, when it is complete a message will appear on screen telling you that part one of the upgrade was successful. You can also change the defaults while in the upgrade program. See the above instructions on setting defaults. *NOTE* Because of the addition of Category, it will be necessary to Update all of your features to include this data. Also because the program now tracks the total number of features in your file, it will be necessary to enter the Utility Menu and use the Purge Ghosts option to force the program to count the number of title you have. The program will display 0 until you do. Enjoy! Charles P. Schell IV Author Version 2.20 Upgrades Improved updating feature, that also lets you thumb through the entire database. Improved delete features. Fixed a bug in custom sorting routines, that prevented sorting by CD number. Version 2.30 Upgrades Fixed a minor bug in the Speed Up Sort routine that could cause difficulties for collections over 350 title. Speed improvements in Find Me! feature. Program now lets you know when it is working, rather than the screen just going dead. After printing listings or labels you are now returned to the Labels And Listings Menu instead of the Main Menu, this saves time if you are doing multiple print outs. Improvements you can't see in the code structure. Version 3.00 Upgrades Added Category to feature data entry. Displays total number of titles in the upper right hand corner of the Main Menu. Code structure totally reworked to decrease size of program and increase efficiency. Version 4.00a Upgrades The ability to exit to DOS temporarily from the Utility Menu. Error messages included. No longer risks losing data if error is improperly handled by the User. Update and Delete functions now work by number instead of Title, making it faster and easier. Purge Ghosts feature added to Utility Menu, this was automatic with the Add function in previous versions but made the program run slow. Speed added to all of the Find Me! routines. Category added to the CD Listings print out. Point and shoot menus. Checks for sufficient disk space prior to allowing Custom Indexes and Speed Up Sort to prevent errors. "Close 'Nuff" added to all search routines allowing minimum input for Find Me!. User sets the data and index file names to avoid filename conflicts. Tune List added. Version 5.00 Upgrades "Close 'Nuf" added to Update and Delete Features. CD Numbers on Case Inserts are now in Double Wide/Double Height size, to make it easier to read. Find Highest Number! added to Find! menu. This will let you know the highest number you have used. Find Missing Numbers! added to Find! menu. This will find numbers that you have missed in sequence. Handy for when someone pilfers a CD, or if you have one eaten by the CD player and have to delete it. Index features in the Utility menu now leave the file indexed as you want it. The file used to automatically revert back to indexing on Title. Custom indexing removed vice the Indexing feature listed above. When making labels, if you do not already have the file indexed by CD number the program will do it for you, temporarily. This adds speed to the printing routine. After print is complete the file is returned to the index you have selected. Address of Unicorn Software Ltd. changed. Find CD Number! added to Find! menu. This will help you locate what is on a particular CD Number you might be missing.
