Disk No: 2641 Disk Title: Back & Forth 1 of 2 (2642 also) PC-SIG Version: S1.71 Program Title: Back & Forth Author Version: 1.71 Author Registration: $69.95 Special Requirements: 100% IBM-compatible PC, hard drive and DOS 3.0+. BACK & FORTH is a versatile program management tool that allows you to load up to 20 programs at once and instantly switch between them. Move between your word processor, spreadsheets, databases, and utilities at will without having to exit, reload, or wait. BACK & FORTH delivers a flexible task management environment for up to 50 programs. Each program provides as much memory as needed but occupies only 17-23K of memory in your computer. If the high memory loader is used, less than 1K of memory is used. Accepting the definition of 50 programs for selection and use, BACK & FORTH uses Expanded Memory (EMS), cleaning up what's left by opening, executing, and closing programs within BACK & FORTH. RAM disks, hard disks, and conventional memory can be used to store swapping programs. The color environment is easy to use, supporting CGA, Hercules, EGA, VGA and all video modes by UltraVision. Customize it, choosing colors that suit your own needs. Supports graphics well and uses a Microsoft-compatible mouse. Run a selected list of programs automatically when BACK & FORTH is first loaded. Word processing capabilities are included. Select hot keys used to pop up BACK & FORTH, the Cut & Paste commands, and all defined programs. Text can be cut from a running program and placed in a clipboard for later pasting, can be printed, or written to a separate file. BACK & FORTH sets up DOS environments for use in executing programs, utilities, and/or DOS commands. Use your modem to dial a number from the screen, and get global support for the following programs: 4DOS, PCED/VSTACK, QEMM, 386-to-the Max, etc. PC-SIG 1030D East Duane Avenue Sunnyvale Ca. 94086 (408) 730-9291 (c) Copyright 1989 PC-SIG, Inc.
