README.TXT - Information on installing and using the DataShooter program. Program Description: DataShooter is a memory resident utility that pops up when you hit the "hot key" you assign to it. While the DataShooter is visible, you can use the mouse or the cursor keys to "point" to a data item. DataShooter will then "shoot" selected fields from the selected item into your DOS application. For example, you may need to send a letter to one of your sales representatives. You could search through a file or binder for the address and then type it into the letter and the envelope. With DataShooter, you simply hit the "hot key", select the salesperson with your mouse, and "click". DataShooter will type the person's name and address for you - with no typing errors! You can use DataShooter with ANY of your DOS based programs that run in character mode (accounting packages, wordprocessors, spreadsheets, database programs, etc.). This version of DataShooter is NOT compatible with the WINDOWS graphics based operating system but DOES work quite well with Quarterdeck's DESQview windowing system. DataShooter runs under DOS 3.0 or above. A hard disk, mouse, and expanded memory are recommended but NOT required. Installation: DO NOT SIMPLY COPY THE FILES TO YOUR DISK. Place disk1 in either drive "a" or "b" and then type: a:install <Enter> (for drive "a") OR b:install <Enter> (for drive "b"). The installation program will check your hard disk(s) to make sure you have room for DataShooter and then will guide you through the installation. The default directory for DataShooter is "C:\DSHOOTER", but you can rename it if you desire. Documentation: DataShooter has a comprehensive on-line Help system (just press F1 while DataShooter is visible). For a printed copy of this information, type the following at the DOS prompt: print c:\dshooter\shooter.man For a bound 118 page manual, simply register with Viking Systems!
