DIVER'S LOG is for the active scuba diver or scuba club to record information about each dive for future retrieval and analysis. Keep track of dive number, location, date, weather, and surface conditions. Now you can back up your paper log in case of loss, theft or damage. It's an insurance policy for your dive log. Or, simply use it to review locations for the name of that great dive spot you want to dive again. The program is completely menu driven. You can store up to 1,024 dives in a single directory.

Divers Log Version 3.0 January 2, 1990 1.0 INTRODUCTION ____________________________________________________________ Welcome to Divers Log 3.0 ! The primary purpose of this program is to back up your paper log in case of loss, theft or damage, and to allow you to more easily recreate a new paper log. This package contains a number of important documents and program files. The following is a list of additional disk files that you should find on this disk. The documentation files contain all the information you need to use this package. ORDER .FRM Registered version order form. (The single most important document on the entire disk !) README .DOC The fabulous file you are now looking at. DIVEHELP.EXE Small help screen, listing special use keys available during use of Divers Log 3.0 This program is executed by DIVE.EXE DIVE .EXE The main program file. If you find a bug in this program and report it to me, you will get a registered copy of the next version at no cost. 2.0 INSTALLING DIVERS LOG ON YOUR PC _____________________________________________________________ The first thing you should do is make a backup of your existing copy of Divers Log and keep it in a safe place. The second thing you should do is copy DIVE.EXE and DIVEHELP.EXE to the drive and directory you will use (or onto a blank, formatted floppy.) ! IMPORTANT ! YOU MUST LOAD THE ANSI.SYS DRIVER BEFORE USING THIS PROGRAM Your CONFIG.SYS file must contain the following line DEVICE = <drive:><\path\>ANSI.SYS ANSI.SYS is supplied with DOS. See your DOS manual for a complete description of the CONFIG.SYS file and the ANSI.SYS driver. 3.0 USING DIVERS LOG _____________________________________________________________ There are several things you need to know about Divers log. 1. Data files are created automatically during run time, if not found at start-up. 2. All files are created on the current drive and in the current directory when DIVE.EXE is started. 3. All menu commands are selected by using the ALT key plus the first letter of the command name. 5. If the Index or Data File is inadvertently erased, contact RTD Software for technical assistance. 6. Press F1 for help at any time to view the list of command and hot keys. 4.0 COMMANDS _____________________________________________________________ ADD ____ The add command allows dive log entries to be placed into your electronic backup log. The following fields must contain strictly numeric data - the characters (0-9). Depth Air Consumption Visibility Water Temperature Air Temperature Entering any alpha characters into these fields will cause a conversion error resulting in a zero value for that field. There are 2 input windows. The left window is the primary window. The window on the right is called the TYPE window. The fields in the TYPE window can be either ON or OFF. Pressing any 'non hot key' while the cursor is in each individual box will select or de-select the indicator. Press CTRL-END to move from the left window to the right window, and then one more time to exit the right window. You cannot go from the right window to the left window. Modify ______ The Modify option allows you to (what else) modify a log entry. It works exactly like the ADD command, with one small exception. You have to enter the Dive Number of the record you wish to modify. Pressing ESC aborts this command without modifying the record. You will be asked for the dive number of the record you want to modify. Pressing ESC or CTRL-END or entering 0 at the dive number prompt will also terminate the command. View _____ This command should be fairly self explanatory. If you need help, press F1. Use PGUP PGDOWN HOME END to process the file, viewing various records. Press CTRL-END to return to the Main Menu when you are done viewing the file. Print _____ This command is used to print out the ENTIRE log, 2 log entries per page (8.5 X 11). This feature corresponds to the primary purpose of the program. To assist in recreating your paper log in case of loss, theft or damage to your original paper log. Load _____ There is always the possibility of wanting to start additional log files. This option allows you to do so. Copy DIVE.EXE and DIVEHELP.EXE to a new location and run DIVE.EXE before using Load. IMPORTANT : ALL LOG FILES ARE CREATED ON THE DEFAULT DRIVE AND DIRECTORY WHERE DIVE.EXE IS EXECUTED FROM ! 5.0 WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DELETE COMMAND? _____________________________________________________________ Tug of war of the mind is not a pretty site. I finally decided not to allow deletes from the file since you would never delete a dive from your paper log. 6.0 Further Information _____________________________________________________________ All registered users may contact RTD Software Systems for technical assistance.
