You might choose the Games Category, where you can pick from 12 subcatgories including Adventure, Arcade, Cards and more. A mouse click (or keyboard stroke) on the program title takes you to a detailed description of the program. you can immediately download the software to your hard or floppy drive, and in many cases view a screen shot. You can find any program in the collection quickly and easily by using the search button. When you are in a program category just type in the title of the program and you will be taken to the description of that program. The popular WordCruncher text retrieval program has been added to allow searching every description for any word within that description, not just in the title or keywords chosen by someone who thinks differently than you do. The WordCruncher is ideal for finding programs which perform a specific function, just try searching for "split", "math" or "subtract". Or switch to the Disks section where you will find an alphabetical list of all the programs which can be searched by program title or disk number. Everyone has their favorite programs and we're no exception. Our 44 favorite programs can be run immediately. No downloading is necessary, all you do is click on the word "RUN" in the program description and you'll be working or playing with top notch software right on the CD.

P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can actually try before you buy. Shareware, a term coined in the early eighties, refers to the method of distribution chosen by the software authors. With shareware, you can receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then you pay a modest registration fee to the author. For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public domain software to its customers and members. Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category. Our library of shareware contains over 3500 titles divided into 120 logical categories. Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide. Quality and support - guaranteed. All of our programs are guaranteed virus free. We've isolated our systems and check every program submitted to insure that no viruses make their way to your computer or ours. Our support staff is available by phone as well as on our BBS to help you with questions about installation and operation of PC-SIG's products. Through our network of international distributors, PC- SIG strives to bring you the most current, exciting, technically advanced software available as shareware. If you can't find the software you need in PC-SIG's library, it may well not exist.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do. Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore. In conjunction with PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.

Documentation for ZK-SHELL.SMM macro This macro will run ZK-Shell. After looking up the Zip Code or City & State, click on "Paste and Minimize" and this macro will then paste the contents of the clipboard at the current cursor postion in your Ami-Pro document. The line in the macro that includes the exec command to run ZK-Shell must be the correct path for zk-shell.exe. The default is: exec("c:\zipkey\zk-shell.exe "," /) If ZK-Shell does not function properly, then you will need to modify the macro to specify the full path name for ZK-Shell. To make things really easy, enter a shortcut key for this macro. If you use it often, then modify the icon bar under "View", "Display Preferences, "Icons" and add an icon for the shortcut key for this macro. This way you can instantly access the macro with the mouse. Another way is to use the custom menu feature of Ami Pro to add ZK-Shell to your menu. See the Automenu.smm and Custmenu.smm macros that are included with Ami Pro to see how to do this. For help with this macro call 1-900-88-HELP-8. The cost is $2.00 per minute and the first 24 seconds are free.

ZK-Shell is a shell program that will allow you to use the popular DOS memory resident program ZIPKEY in Microsoft Windows. ZIPKEY is required to use this program. If you do not have a copy of ZIPKEY you can obtain an evaluation copy from your favorite shareware disk vendor, BBS or by calling 1-800-IBM-DISK and asking for the ZIPKEY shareware disk. This number is for the Public Brand Software shareware vendor in Indianapolis, Indiana. ZIPKEY may also be purchased directly from: Eric Isaacson Software 416 E. University Avenue Bloomington, Indiana 47401-4739 This program will allow you to enter a known ZIP code, call ZIPKEY to look up the city and state and then type the City, State and ZIP code into your word processor. If you need to look up a ZIP code, you can enter the two letter state abbreviation and the city name and ZK-Shell will have ZIPKEY look up the ZIP code for you. 2 How To Install ZK-Shell You must have a copy of ZIPKEY to use the ZK-Shell program. If you do not have this program contact your favorite shareware dis- tributor or search out a copy on your favorite BBS system. See above in the introduction. o Copy the ZK-Shell Files Copy the two ZK-Shell files into the directory that you have ZIPKEY installed. The two files are ZK-SHELL.EXE and ZK-SHELL.HLP. ZK-SHELL.HLP is necessary if you want to be able to access the help system from within ZK-Shell. o Start Windows o Open the Program Manager Window Add a program item to a group you want to add the ZK-Shell icon. - Open the group window for the group you want to add the icon. This might be your word processing group or possibly your utilities group. - Choose "New" from the "File" menu. The 'New Program Object" dialog box appears. - 2 - - Select "Program Item" and choose "OK". - Type the description you want to be displayed under the icon. Example: ZK-Shell - Type the path and file name of the ZK-Shell program. This is the path that you copied the ZK- Shell program files into above. Example: C:\ZIPKEY\ZK-SHELL.EXE - Choose "OK" The dialog box disappears and your icon is displayed in the group box. 3 Setup In order to use ZK-Shell to paste the City, State and ZIP code into your word processor, you must tell ZK-Shell the format to use. There are three formats: The normal letter format: St. Petersburg, Florida 33712-5631 The letter using two letter state abbreviation: St. Petersburg, FL 33712-5631 The US post office desired method: ST. PETERSBURG FL 33712-5631 In order to use ZK-Shell, you must first have the ZIPKEY program loaded into memory before starting Windows. This may be ac- complished by adding the loading of ZIPKEY into your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. If you do not have ZIPKEY loaded, ZK-Shell will give you an error message to let you know that it's not loaded. ZIPKEY is a memory resident program for looking up ZIP codes from supplied state and city names or city and state names from supplied ZIP codes. ZIPKEY is a trademark of Eric Isaacson Software. - 3 - 4 Look in ZIPKEY First a little about moving around ZK-Shell. The Tab key will move the cursor from field to field and button to button. The Shift+Tab will reverse this movement. You may also select the buttons with the Alt+[the underlined character] in the buttons. The area just below the "Enter ZIP Code" and above the list box is where the city, state and ZIP will be displayed for pasting into your word processor. The Paste and Minimize button will perform the paste function for you. We have provided macros for the popular word processors making this as seamless as possible. See the text file README.1ST for pointers to the various macros. As you type the state and city in ZK-Shell, the list box will display possible cities and ZIP codes. You can double click a line in the list box to select it or use the keyboard by tabbing to the list box, using the up and down keys to mark an entry and press enter to select. If you look up a ZIP code and want to do another, you should use the Clear and Start Again button to start over. There are several ways to use ZK-Shell to interface with ZIPKEY. A general need is to look up a ZIP code for a city and state that is known. The ZK-Shell program window has three data entry areas. Two of these areas are "Enter State" and "Enter City". To look up a ZIP code, you would type in the two letter state abbreviation in the Enter State field and then the full city name in the Enter City field. In cases of multiple ZIP cities, a list of ZIP codes will be displayed in the list box. If there are more than can be displayed in the on screen box, a scroll bar will allow access to the overflow. Don't forget to use the Clear and Start Again button to do additional searches. If you have the ZIP code but are unsure about how to spell a City name, you can use the feature to look up the city and state and paste it into your word processor. In this case, you would enter the ZIP code in the "Enter ZIP Code" field of the program and press the Paste and Minimize button. Remember, you can also use the underlined shortcut keys by pressing Alt plus the underlined key on the button. 5 Paste and Minimize The Paste and Minimize button will minimize the ZK-Shell appli- cation to an Icon and paste the City, State and ZIP code as displayed on the screen into the clip board for passing to your word processor. We have supplied macros to make this a seamless paste into your word processors. - 4 - 6 Clear and Start Again This button should be used if you are going to look up more than one ZIP code or City and State. Use it after each lookup is complete. 7 Exit Believe it or not, Exit needs a little explanation. You may exit this program using several different methods, by your choice. The Exit button, or selecting the File, Exit selection, by pressing Alt+X or double clicking on the close button at the top of the window. No matter which one you chose, they all still just close the application and exit to the state prior to entering ZK-Shell. 8 Legal Stuff and Shareware Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs differ on details -- some request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With regis- tration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual. Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of distri- bution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a specific group. For example, some authors require written per- mission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their Shareware. Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it. DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT Users of ZK-Shell must accept this disclaimer of warranty: "ZK- Shell is supplied as is. The author disclaims all warranties, - 5 - expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the war- ranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the use of ZK-Shell." ZK-Shell is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends, but please do not give it away altered or as part of another system. The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide personal computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet to provide incentive for programmers to continue to develop new products. If you find this program useful and find that you are using ZK-Shell and continue to use ZK-Shell after a reasonable trial period, you must make a regis- tration payment of $20.00 to ZPAY Payroll Systems, Inc. The $20.00 registration fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. You must treat this software just like a book. An example is that this software may be used by any number of people and may be freely moved from one computer location to another, so long as there is no possibility of it being used at one location while it's being used at another. Just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time. Commercial users of ZK-Shell must register and pay for their copies of ZK-Shell within 30 days of first use or their license is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by con- tacting ZPAY Payroll Systems, Inc. Anyone distributing ZK-Shell for any kind of remuneration must first contact ZPAY Payroll Systems, Inc. at the address above for authorization. This authorization will be automatically granted to distributors recognized by the (ASP) as adhering to its guide- lines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin offering ZK-Shell immediately (However ZPAY Payroll Systems, Inc. must still be advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to- date with the latest version of ZK-Shell.). You are encouraged to pass a copy of ZK-Shell along to your friends for evaluation. Please encourage them to register their copy if they find that they can use it. All registered users will receive the code to turn off the registration reminder screen.
