MEAL-MASTER IMPORT FILE SPECIFICATIONS The Meal-Master import function was only designed to import recipes previously exported from the program. However, the export format is a simple text file that can be created by most text editor programs. Many people have found that recipes from other sources can be edited to look like a MM export file, allowing them to be imported to MM with little or no retyping. All it takes is some patience, some practice, and an understanding of exactly what the import process is expecting. This file won't help with the first two, but here is a description of what the program expects to see in an importable file: FIXED FORMAT (LINES 1 THROUGH 6) Line 1 The first line of a valid recipe is a "recipe header" line. This line must begin with at least 5 hyphens ('-----'), and must contain the words "Meal-Master" somewhere on the line. Any lines found prior to this "recipe header" line will be ignored by Meal-Master. Line 2 Must be blank. Line 3 The word "Title:" must begin the line, in any position, and followed by one blank space. The recipe title must start after the blank space, and may be a maximum of 60 characters in length. Line 4 The word "Categories:" must begin the line, in any position, and followed by one blank space. A maximum of 5 category names may be entered, beginning after the blank space. Each category MUST start with a capital letter, and all remaining letters must be lower case. The names must be separated by one, and only one, space. Line 5 The word "Servings:" should start the line, but is not required. A numeric quantity between 1 and 9999 must appear somewhere on this line. Line 6 Must be blank. VARIABLE FORMAT - LINES 7 AND GREATER Beginning with line 7, Meal-Master will attempt to identify each line as being an ingredient line, direction line, or the "end of recipe" trailer line. If a line is found that starts with 5 hyphens, and contains no characters other than hyphens and spaces, the program considers this the "end of recipe" trailer line. It will store the current recipe and begin searching for another "recipe header" as described in "line 1" above. If all the following are true, the line will be interpreted as an ingredient and loaded into Meal-Master: 1) Positions 9-10 contain one of the valid Meal-Master unit of measure codes. (see list in program or user's manual) 2) Positions 1-7 contain a valid numeric quantity, either expressed as a whole number, decimal fraction, or common fraction. 3) Positions 12-39 contain text for an ingredient name. If the line does not qualify as an ingredient line or end of recipe line, as specified above, data in positions 3-77 (or 1-75 if positions 1-2 are non-blank) will be imported as a direction line. Files can contain multiple recipes, so long as each begins with a "header line" and ends with a "trailer line". Any text in the file that is not between the header and trailer lines is ignored. NOTE: THIS SPECIFICATION IS ONLY VALID FOR MEAL-MASTER VERSION 6.21 AND HIGHER, AND WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH EARLIER VERSIONS. PLEASE OBTAIN VERSION 6.21 OR GREATER FOR PROPER RESULTS!
**************************************** * * * MEAL-MASTER * * Quick-Start Instructions * * * **************************************** *** WELCOME TO MEAL-MASTER! *** Thank you for trying Meal-Master. Meal-Master is a menu-driven database system tailored to manage recipes. It will help you store, update, and print your recipes in a variety of formats. But the real power of Meal-Master lies in its search and utility functions! You can search for recipes using any combination of Title, Category, or Ingredient criteria. Imagine being able to find all the recipes that can be made with a certain ingredient! Plus, just change the number of servings a recipe makes, and all the individual ingredient amounts will be adjusted automatically! To help in entire menu preparation, you can "mark" recipes as you select them. Then activate the Shopping List function and Meal-Master will locate the ingredients for all the marked recipes, total the quantities of like items, and print a shopping list! Other features allow you to print a recipe index by title or category, "batch" print a set of recipes, or "extract" recipes to a standard DOS file, so you can use them in a word processor or upload them to a bulletin board system. Extracted recipes can also be "imported" back into Meal-Master without retyping - making recipe exchange with other Meal-Master users a real snap! Meal-Master not only replaces the dog-eared, disorganized collection of index cards found in most kitchens, it provides a valuable tool for meal selection and preparation! *** REQUIRED EQUIPMENT AND CONFIGURATION *** Meal-Master should run on any IBM-PC, PC-XT, or 100% compatible with at least 384k of memory. It will run on floppy or hard disk systems, with either a color or monochrome monitor. (A FILES=xx statement is required in your CONFIG.SYS file, where xx is at least 12) Page 1 Meal-Master Quick-Start *** CAPACITY *** Meal-Master can be used to create one or several Meal-Master databases. Each database must be located on a separate disk or subdirectory, and is capable of storing several thousand recipes, subject to available disk space. Each recipe is limited to a combined total of 100 direction lines and ingredients. On the average, you can expect to store about 300 recipes on each 360k disk, 600 on each 720k disk, 1200 on each 1.44mb disk, and several thousand on a large hard disk. The actual number will depend upon the average size of the recipes you create. *** STARTING THE PROGRAM *** To start using Meal-Master, you need only the program file, named MM.EXE. When you type "MM" and press return, Meal-Master should begin running. Meal-Master stores your recipes in three files: INDEX.MMF, INGRED.MMF, and DIRECT.MMF. It uses a fourth file, PARM.MMF, to store information such as what kind of forms you are using on your printer. Finally, a fifth file named CATFILE.MMF is used to store a list of valid recipe categories. If any of these files are not found when Meal-Master starts, they are created automatically. This makes Meal-Master very easy to install: Just copy the MM.EXE file to the diskette or hard disk directory of your choice, type MM, and press return. Meal-Master will ask you for the operating parameters it needs to build the PARM.MMF file, then create a new recipe database. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have been using a previous version of Meal-Master (or Meal-Meister), with a version number less than 5.01, then your current working disk or hard drive directory will contain the file MM.COM. The presence of this file will prevent the current version from running. You will need delete MM.COM (or move it to another directory) before attempting to use the current program's MM.EXE file. Recipe files created with previous versions are still fully compatible with the current program. Also, for Meal-Master to run properly you must have the file CONFIG.SYS in the root directory of the disk you boot from, and it must contain a "FILES=xx" statement, where "xx" is at least (11). If not, some Meal-Master functions will not operate. If you're in a hurry to see how some of Meal-Master's advanced features work, you can try it out with the sample recipe database provided. Make sure that the provided INDEX.MMF, INGRED.MMF, DIRECT.MMF, PARM.MMF, and CATFILE.MMF are on the same disk and Page 2 Meal-Master Quick-Start directory as the program files before starting Meal-Master. Then try out the search, shopping list and batch print options. You can keep these recipes and add to them, or delete the files and start your own database. *** USING THE DATABASE *** Meal-Master is completely menu driven and very easy to use. ADDING RECIPES -------------- Selecting 'A' from the main menu allows you to add new recipes to the file. You will be prompted for the title, categories (each recipe can reference up to five categories), and number of servings. When asked for categories, a window will be displayed containing all the valid category names (If more than one page of names exist, the PGUP and PGDN keys will move through the categories; and category names can be changed, added, or deleted from the Maintenance/Setup menu). You can highlight the desired category names using the up and down arrow keys, or type the names in directly. Next, Meal-Master will display the ingredient screen. To insert an ingredient, press the "I" key. A new line will be inserted, and you will be prompted first for the ingredient quantity, then the unit of measure, and, finally, the ingredient name. The quantity can be entered as either a common fraction (i.e., 1/2) or as the decimal equivalent (i.e., 0.5), but will be displayed in the format selected on the Maintenance/Setup Screen (MM comes setup to display common fractions; if you want to see decimal equivalents, simply change the format option on the Maintenance/Setup Screen). The quantity field will also accept an "H", to allow a heading to be entered for a group of ingredients. When you have entered the quantity, press the return key to move on to the unit of measure field. While the cursor is in the unit of measure field, a window will be displayed listing the valid codes you may use. Use the page up and page down keys to view the list. You may select a unit of measure from the list by highlighting it with the up and down arrow keys, or you can type the value in directly. After selecting a valid code, press the return key to move on to the ingredient name field. Enter the ingredient name and press return to complete the ingredient entry. Press "I" and repeat the above steps for each ingredient you wish to add. When finished entering ingredients, pressing the ESC key will proceed to directions entry. Page 3 Meal-Master Quick-Start Recipe directions are added similar to ingredient entry - simply press the "I" or "Insert" keys to create a new line, enter the line of text, then press return. In addition, there is a complete "word-wrap" feature available. If you continue typing past the end of the line, the cursor will automatically break between words and continue on the next line. There are also functions available to split a line, or to reformat paragraphs. A legend of keys and their functions is displayed at the bottom of the directions window. When all directions have been entered, press the "ESC" key again. If you make a mistake and wish to delete an ingredient or a line of direction text, use the up/down arrow keys to position that line to the center of the display window, then press the F10 key. SEARCHING FOR RECIPES --------------------- Selecting 'S' from the main menu takes you to the heart of Meal-Master. Here you can specify search criteria find the recipes that match. You can instruct Meal-Master to select only those recipes that: a) Contain a certain word or phrase in their title; b) Reference a certain category (i.e., "Soups" or "Main Dishes"); c) Use a specific ingredient; d) A combination of the above three criteria. Once you have entered your search criteria, pressing "S" will start the search. The number and title of each recipe that qualifies will be listed. If you start the search without entering any search criteria, all recipes in the file will be listed. You may also use the PgUp and PgDn keys to page forward and backward through the list of recipes found. LISTING, REVISING, and MARKING ------------------------------ Recipes found by the search function will be followed by a prompt asking if you wish to List, Revise, or Mark any of them. If you type "L" at the List/Revise/Mark prompt, you will be asked to indicate which recipe you want to list. You may select a recipe from the list using the up and down arrow keys, or type in the number directly. Next you will be asked if you wish to list the recipe to the screen or on your printer. If you select the printer, the recipe will be printed using the parameters specified in the "Maintenance/Setup" section of the program ('M' from the main menu; there you can specify what size and type forms you are using for Recipe printouts and for Listings, and specify special printer controls). Page 4 Meal-Master Quick-Start If you type 'R' at the List/Revise/Mark prompt, you will be asked to indicate which recipe you want to revise. You may select a recipe from the list using the up and down arrow keys, or type in the number directly. This will take you to the Revise menu for the selected recipe. From here, you can update the selected recipe title and category list; add, delete or revise ingredients and directions; or change the number of servings. When changing the number of servings, Meal-Master will ask if you want the ingredient quantities adjusted. If you answer yes, Meal- Master will adjust all the ingredient quantities in the same proportions as the serving size change you have made! You can also 'Remove' a recipe from the file. When you use this option, the recipe is not really deleted, but just marked as removed. The recipe can still be seen in searches and can be 'Restored' until it is permanently deleted by use of the Rebuild option on the Maintenance menu. This gives you a "second chance" in case you accidentally delete a recipe! If you type an 'M', a prompt will ask which recipe you want to mark. You may select a recipe from the list using the up and down arrow keys, or type in a number directly. Once you have marked some recipes, you can use the 'Shopping List' and 'Batch Print' features on the Utilities Menu. These options only process marked recipes, allowing you to quickly print several selected recipes, or produce a consolidated list of ingredients to use as a shopping list! *** IMPORT/EXPORT FEATURE *** A very useful feature of Meal-Master is its ability to export and import recipe files. These options allow you to move recipes between the Meal-Master database and standard DOS files, allowing easy exchange of recipes between Meal-Master users. Hundreds of recipes are available in Meal-Master export format, and conversion programs are available to convert other popular formats into Meal-Master format. Recipe files can be found on many electronic bulletin board systems, and on the Compuserve Information System. By acquiring these files and importing them into Meal-Master, you can build a large recipe database with little or no typing! *** SHOPPING LIST *** After using the Search feature to "Mark" several recipes, the Shopping list function can be selected from the Utilities menu. The ingredients from each marked recipe will be extracted and combined into one list, sorted alphabetically. Quantities of Page 5 Meal-Master Quick-Start ingredients that occur on multiple recipes will be combined, and their unit of measure automatically converted when needed. *** COMMON PROBLEMS *** The most commonly reported problem with Meal-Master is caused by taking an "installed" copy from one machine and putting it on another. Meal-Master records information about your setup in a file called PARM.MMF, and this file should not be moved between machines. The distribution copy of MM released by us purposely does not have this file included, so that the program will create one for your machine. Unfortunately, since MM is Shareware, it is often distributed to Bulletin Board Systems and Shareware Distributors by users that accidentally include their own PARM.MMF file. If you are having trouble with Meal-Master on your machine, try deleting the PARM.MMF file and running the program again. Meal-Master will work with any "100% PC Compatible" machine. Some machines, particularly certain Tandy and ATT models, use a video architecture that is not fully PC compatible. If MM does not run on your machine, and you suspect a video incompatibility, try starting the program with "MM /C" to see if this solves the problem. This will solve some display adapter conflicts, although it also makes the program run somewhat slower. *** MORE HELP *** These brief instructions and some experimentation should get you started using Meal-Master. If you decide to keep and register Meal-Master, you will receive a comprehensive user's manual with over 70 pages describing Meal-Master's many features. As a registered user, you will also receive top priority technical support should you have questions or problems that need our help. *** REGISTERING MEAL-MASTER *** Meal-Master is shareware. That means it is not free, but you get a chance to "try-before-you-buy". If you like Meal-Master, and decide after trying it to keep and use it, you should register. Registered users receive a registered master disk with the latest version of Meal-Master and the user's manual. The user's manual is professionally typeset and bound, with over 70 pages of description, examples, and a helpful index. Registered users are given complete technical support, and receive discounted upgrade offers on future releases. Page 6 Meal-Master Quick-Start In addition, several utility programs for Meal-Master are provided to registered users. These utilities will allow you to customize Meal-Master's text and background colors, do global search and replace operations on recipe categories, and see statistics about your recipe database, including analysis and projection of how may more recipes can be entered based on the average size of your existing recipes. These utilities are not shareware, and are provided only to registered users. To register, and receive the latest version of Meal-Master, along with the complete user's manual and utility programs, simply send a check or money order for $35.00 in U.S. funds (Washington state residents must add 7.8% sales tax; shipping is included in the U.S. and Canada, others add $5.00) to: Episoft Systems Suite #143 10121 Evergreen Way Everett, WA 98204 Page 7
WHATS NEW IN VERSION 6.1 OF MEAL-MASTER: Additional unit codes for volume and weight have been added, including full support for common metric measures. Metric units now include milliliter (ml), cubic centimeter (cc), centiliter (cl), deciliter (dl), liter (l), milligram (mg), centigram (cg), decigram (dg), gram (g), and kilogram (kg). Common U.S. units now include teaspoon (t or ts), tablespoon (T or tb), fluid ounce (fl), cup (c), pint (pt), quart (qt), gallon (ga), ounce (oz), and pound (lb). Automatic conversion between unit types is provided, including conversion between U.S. and Metric units. Additional item units have also been added. Item units now include each (ea), can (cn), package (pk), pinch (pn), drop (dr), dash (ds), and "as required." When entering or revising an ingredient, the unit of measure can now be selected by highlighting the desired unit on a list. Previously, the list was displayed but the unit name had to be typed in manually. Category names can now be chosen by highlighting them from a list, rather than typing the category name. This applies to new recipe entry, revisions, and when specifying a category on the search specification screen. The list of recipes resulting from a search can now be paged forward AND backwards. In previous versions, the list could only be paged forward. When specifying a recipe to be marked, cleared, listed or revised, the recipe can be chosen by highlighting it on the search results list. Previously, the number of the recipe had to be typed in manually. After completion of a list or revise operation, the program returns to the search results list at the same point where the list or revise operation was started. Previously, the program returned to the search menu, requiring the search to be repeated to list or revise additional recipes. Searches can now be interrupted, then restarted where the interruption was made. While interrupted, recipes listed to the point of interruption can be listed or revised, then the search can be continued or cancelled. Previously, when a search was interrupted the program returned to the search menu. When printing recipes, the automatic top-of-forms to the next page can now be suppressed by specifying 999 for the number of lines per page. This will allow multiple recipes to be printed on the same page if desired. A new option on the Maintenance menu allows recipes to be resized dynamically at the time they are listed or printed. The "Serving size on Lists" option is toggled between "As Stored" and "Prompted" using the "S" option on the Maintenance menu. When set to "As Stored" recipes are listed using their stored servings value. When set to "Prompted" a secondary menu is displayed when a recipe list is requested, allowing a different serving size to be specified. This different size is used only for the list operation, and does not affect the recipes stored serving size. Marked recipes now remain marked when the program is exited. Marks are cleared only when the Erase option is chosen on the Search menu. Previously, marks were not retained when exiting the program. Additional error messages have replaced some of the cryptic error "codes" from previous versions. Additional internal buffering has been added to search, index, shopping list and file rebuild features, making significant speed improvements in these operations. Some minor "bugs" have been exterminated.
WHATS NEW IN VERSION 6.20 of MEAL-MASTER SPECIAL EXPORT FORMAT FOR PRODIGY (tm) Users -------------------------------------------- A special extract format has been added for users of the Prodigy (tm) online service. This format is compatible with direct upload and download for users exchanging recipes via the Prodigy service. The "Extract Recipe Format" option on the Maintenance Menu allows choosing the "Normal" extract format or the new "Special *P" format for Prodigy. More information on exchanging recipes via Prodigy can be found in Prodigy's "Food and Wine" club, under the "Food Forum" subject. Note: Prodigy is a registered trademark of Prodigy Services Company. CONVERSION UTILITY FOR COMPUCHEF (tm) RECIPES --------------------------------------------- A conversion utility program, CC2MM.EXE, is provided to convert recipes in the CompuChef v1.5 export format to Meal-Master import format. Recipes are first exported from CompuChef to form a CompuChef Export file, then CC2MM is used to convert that file into a Meal-Master import file, then Meal-Master is used to actually import the file. Note: CompuChef is a trademark of Hillstepper Software. IMPORT FORMAT RELAXED, ERROR MESSAGES ADDED ------------------------------------------- For users that are using a word processor to prepare recipes that match the Meal-Master Import format, that format has been made easier than before. In addition, errors are analyzed and displayed on-screen to aide in resolution. See the file "IMPORT.DOC" for import file specifications. AUTOMATIC DUPLICATE REJECTION ON NON-STOP IMPORT ------------------------------------------------ A new import option has been added to allow mass-import of recipes with automatic rejection of titles that already exist in the database. Selecting the "D)Nonstop w/Check" option when importing will check each recipe against the existing database and not import those that already exist. Optionally, a file named IMPORT.LOG can be created to provide a history of which recipes were rejected. SUPPRESSION OF "AS REQUIRED" QUANTITY AND UNIT ---------------------------------------------- Ingredients with an "As Required" quantity (Quantity=1, Unit of Measure = x) are now shown on lists with a blank quantity and unit field. OVERRIDE OF CATEGORY ERROR ALLOWED ---------------------------------- Previous versions of MM would not allow entering a recipe category that was not on the category list. Now an error message is generated warning that the category is not on the list, but you are allowed to override the error and enter the category anyway if desired. IMPORT MENU REWRITTEN --------------------- The Import Menu has been rewritten for easier use.
WHATS NEW IN VERSTION 6.21 OF MEAL-MASTER IMPORT FORMAT RELAXED FURTHER ----------------------------- The first two lines of a recipe being imported require the keyword "Title: " in front of the title, and "Categories: " in front of the categories. Prior to v6.21, these had to be in specific columns, and with 6.21 they can occur in any column. Prior to v6.21, the line following the Categories line had to begin with the keyword "Servings:". With v6.21, Meal-Master will scan the entire line, ignoring any non-numeric characters, to find the serving quantity. The keyword is no longer required, and the serving quantity can appear anywhere on the line. Prior to version 6.21, direction lines had to begin in position 3. With 6.21, direction text can begin in position 3 (as with exported recipes) or in position 1. SEARCH MENU REORGANIZED ----------------------- Items on the search menu have been resequenced to place the "display marks" and "erase marks" options on the same line. MULTIPLE INGREDIENT SEARCH ADDED -------------------------------- You can now search for only those recipes that contain several specific ingredients. For example, entering "Beef and Cheese" as the ingredient search criteria would return only those recipes that contain BOTH Beef and Cheese as ingredients. (Note: Since Meal-Master performs a substring search, recipes with variations of Beef and Cheese will also be found. For example, a recipe containing the ingredients "Roast beef" and "Cheddar Cheese" would qualify for the above search example. EXPORT FROM SEARCH AND REVISE MENUS ----------------------------------- Access to the Export function has been added to the Search list and Revise menus. Selecting "E" from either of these menus allows you to export a recipe without returning to the Utilities menu. REVISE MENU REORGANIZED ----------------------- Along with the addition of the Export option, the Revise menu has been reorganized to make options easier to find. DYNAMIC UPDATE OF CATEGORY LIST ------------------------------- When adding or revising a recipe which contains a cateogory that is not on the valid category table, you now have the choice of ignoring the error and keeping the category on that recipe, revising the category to another value, or immediately adding that category to the valid category table. It is no longer required to exit the recipe, go to the maintenance menu, and add the category there.
