Marek PROGRAM TITLE: THE CARDSHOP AUTHOR'S VERSION#: ? AUTHOR'S NAME: Robert L. Manis REQUESTED REGISTRATION: $19.95 BRIEFLY DESCRIBE WHAT THE PROGRAM DOES IN YOUR OWN WORDS: A database to store lists of baseball cards. WHO IS IT FOR? Anyone who collects baseball cards. IS IT SIMILAR TO ANY OTHER SOFTWARE PROGRAM YOU'VE USED? Compare: Similar to most very basic database programs. SPECIAL SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS? None. ANY LIMITATIONS? None. ******* RATINGS ******* EASE OF USE: (Rate-5 Easiest..1 Hardest) _5__ COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED JUST TO GET THE PROGRAM STARTED _5__ COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED TO USE PROGRAM _4__ KNOWLEDGE OF SUBJECT MATTER NEEDED TO USE PROGRAM QUALITY: (Rate - 5 Exceptional ..1 Awful) _5_ ERROR HANDLING _4_ DOCUMENTATION (Skip if no documentation is required to run.) _3_ GRAPHICS QUALITY _3_ VALUE FOR THE $$$ _3_ OVERALL RATING (Rate - 5 Best..1 Worst) PERSONAL COMMENTS: Very easy to use! This is one of those rare programs you can start using after spending only a few minutes reading the documentation. The program was straight forward and the documentation was ample. The confirmation prompt before deleting records was a good error check. ADDITIONAL REMARKS or RATINGS: Including an install batch file was helpful but need to indicate in the documentation which batch file to use (e.g. INSTALLC.BAT INSTALLD.BAT INSTALLE.BAT INSTNET.BAT). Simplify the set-up process even further by including an option to update the buffers and files in the CONFIG.SYS file during INSTALL.BAT rather than just instructing the customers to add these commands to CONFIG.SYS themselves. Increase the search features of THE CARDSHOP by including the abilities to search using wildcards, operands and conditional logic. Documentation was straight forward but spelling errors need to be corrected.
