Because it not just manages your environment but it can also listen and talk to other users of InteMenu. There are three key features: 1. An Application Launch Pad - The traditional menuing feature which lets you organize your applications into manageable groups. Selction of any choiced application is just one key stroke away. 2. A Message Center - A revolutionary feature for a menuing system.

System Requirements: 1. Any IBM PC, AT, PS/2 and compatibles with EGA, VGA or Monochrome Graphics monitors. 2. Any Local Area Network Operating System such as Novell, IBM PC LAN, etc.. 3. It takes only 12K of memory. Whatever is left is for running your applications. Installation: 1. Make a sub-directory in a network drive, eg. MkDir F:\INTEMENU. 2. Change and make this sub-directory your current directory. 3. Insert Installation Diskette in drive A (or B). Copy all files from Installation disk to current directory. If you have a ZIP file, unzip it into current directory. 4. Get user names ready (Each 16 characters maximum). 4. Type INSTALL and follow instructions. Execution: User A (as defined during installation) shall type A to start INTEMENU. User B,C,D shall type B or C or D to start, etc. InteMenu must be started at directory where it is installed. System Descriptions: After starting INTEMENU, a screen shall appear which consists of: 1. A Main Menu on the left side of the screen. 2. A Message Center on the upper right side. 3. A Menu Choice Center on the lower right side. 4. A Broadcast Center at the bottom. The Main Menu is displayed as 10 buttons, from 0 to 9. 0 is reserved for activating the Message Center. 9 is reserved for activating the Broadcast Center. 1 to 8 can be used to either launch an application or to activate the Menu Choice Center to display a set of Menu choices. The highlighted bar indicates current choice selection and it can be moved around by using UpArrow or DownArrow keys. Pressing <ENTER> will activate current selection. Pressing any numeric key will activate the numbered button. Editing of choice 1 to 8 is done by highlighting the choice and press <SPACE>. An Editing screen will appear and it contains three input fields: Title, Path and Comm (for Command). If the choice is intended to be used to launch an application, such as Lotus 123, then the Title, as well as Path and Comm have to be filled in, eg. Title: Lotus 123 version 2.2 Path : F:\123 Comm : 123.EXE If the choice is intended to be used to activate the Menu Choice Center to display more Menu choices, then only the Title needs to be input; the Path and Comm fields shall be left un-modified, eg. Title: Corporte Applications Path : SUBMENU Comm : SUBMENU Choice 0 and 9 can not be edited. The Menu Choice Center can be activated by highlighting one of the 8 Main Menu choices (1 to 8) and press <ENTER> or by simply pressing the numeric key (1 to 8). The Menu Choice Center screen will then display a set of 26 Menu choices (contained in 4 pages). The highlighted bar can be moved around by using UpArrow, DownArrow, PgUp, PgDn keys. There is a maximum total of 8*26 Menu choices. Editing of any highlighted choices is activated by pressing <SPACE>. A screen similar to the editing screen for Main Menu choices will appear. Editing is done in the same way. If editing is done correctly for the Main Menu and the Menu Choice Center. Then an application can be launched with the press of a key. The Message Center can be activated by highlighting "Message Center" and press <ENTER> or simply pressing "0". Initially, a "No Message" message will appear in the Message Center. But if you send a message to yourself or if somebody has sent you a message, it will appear in the Message Centre in reverse chronological order. To send a message, press <Insert> and an editing screen will appear. First to appear is a list of available users who is in the InteMenu System. Move the highlighted bar around using UpArrow, DownArrow, PgUp, PgDn keys. Press <SPACE> to select the highlighted user as the recipient. A ">" sign will appear. Press <SPACE> again and the recipient will be de-selected. You can select multiple recipients. After finish selecting the recipients, press <ENTER>. The prompt will be in the "Message" field and a brief 4 line message can be input. Press <ENTER> to finish input and the message will be sent to the selected recipients. If there is any message that you want to delete, just highlight the message and press <DELETE>. To read a highlighted message longer than 45 characters, press <RightArrow> or <LeftArrow> key to scroll the message. The Broadcast Center can be activated by highlighting "Broadcast Center" and press <ENTER> or simply pressing "9". Initially, a "No News" message will appear. But if you or others have broadcasted news, then they will appear in the Broadcast Center in a round ribbon fashion. The default Broadcast Station is always the first choice. It will be selected when InteMenu is first loaded. The default Station name is called "Company News". To change the name of the Station, press <SPACE> and an editing screen will appear as follows: Abbr : A Title: Company News Path : <DRIVE>\<PATH>\NEWS.DAT Comm : You can freely change "Abbr" and "Title". "Path" indicates "<DRIVE>\<PATH>\NEWS.DAT" which actually means that the news is stored in a file of that name in that <DRIVE> and <PATH>. Make sure that <DRIVE> and <PATH> are correctly specified. "Comm" should be left blank and its content has no effect at all. (Remember that the default setup for Path does not specify <DRIVE> and <PATH> and so it must be edited in order for Broadcast Station to work correctly) A total of 26 broadcast station can be created. It means that you can create your own broadcast station and let other people tune in or you can tune in to other stations so long as the name of the news file and the <DRIVE> and <PATH> is known. Suppose you want to create a Broadcast Station called "House For Sale", do the following: 1. Exit to DOS and select a public directory accessible by other users who will listen to you Broadcast Station. Type MAKENEWS HOUSE.DAT (This will create a news file called HOUSE.DAT). 2. Enter INTEMENU and press "9" to select "News Broadcast" to enter Menu Choices. 3. Move the Highlight bar to a choice with no Broadcast Station. Press <SPACE> to Edit. 4. Edit the screen as following: Abbr : B (or C or D, so long as the alphabet has not been used) Title : House For Sale Path : <DRIVE>\<PATH>\HOUSE.DAT Comm : 5. After finish editing, press <ENTER> to select "House For Sale" Broadcast Station and you will see the Broadcast Title at the bottom of the screen changed to "House For Sale" and a "No News" message appears across the bottom screen. 6. Tell every body of your new Broadcast Station and the News file. They can then edit their Menu Choices to tune in to your station. If you want to tune in to Broadcast Station belonging to another INTEMENU Network on another file server, you will have to first have access to that file server and the directory where the news file is stored before you can tune in. Eg. If someone told you that there is a station on file server ABCD and the news file is SPORTS.DAT in directory NEWS, then you will need access to that server and directory by "MAPPING" a drive to it (eg. G:=\\ABCD\NEWS in case of PC LAN, or G:=ABCD/SYS:NEWS in case of Novell). Then edit one of the un-used Broadcast Stations. Edit "Path" so that it looks like this: Path : G:\NEWS\SPORTS.DAT Edit "Abbr" and "Title" the way you want it. If you want to broadcast a news, highlight the Broadcast Station where you want to make the broadcast and press <Insert> and an editing screen will appear. First the broadcast news can be input, then you can input the day of week when the news should be taken off the broadcast, eg. If today is Friday and you want the news to be taken off on next Tuesday, then enter "2". This arrangement allows news to be broadcasted for a maximum of 7 days. News Broadcast can be speeded up or slow down by pressing '+' or '-' key while highlight bar is at any one of the buttons. That's all, folks!
