The WordCruncher text retrieval program has also been implemented to assist you insearching this vast collection. This CD-ROM contains over 3700 fully functional shareware programs, each with a detailed review. The 12th Edition has added over 300 new programs and over 500 updates since the release of the 11th Edition. The collection is always kept current and now contains over 70 megabytes of Windows 3.0 and 3.1 applications, fonts, icons, games and wallpaper files. The range of software is phenomenal! There are huge assortments of games, everything from adventure games with full SVGA and SoundBlaster support to favorites like Klondike, Chess and Othello. Spreadsheets, databases, wordprocessors and graphics programs are instantly available and there are literally hundreds of unique and specialized programs that will save you time and money. This amazing collection will help you get a handle on all your business and home accounting and also teach your children about zoology. Each of the more than 3700 programs has a one-line description for quick reference, Just pick one of the 13 software categories and a subcategory to begin browsing for a program that interests you. 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. The power of hypermedia will allow you to try out more software than you ever thought possible. We are sure that you will find a multitude of programs to your liking on the P-SIG Library on CD-ROM. System Requirements: IBM PC/AT PS/2 or compatible with 640K, DOS 3.3 or higher, Microsoft MS-DOS CD-ROM Extensions and a CD-ROM player. We recommend a 386 with a VGA monitor.

Dr. File Finder a.k.a. Michael Callahan Finally, 368 of the most useful, popular, important shareware programs have been put together on one CD. No matter what your need, it's on The Essential Home & Business Collection. Everything from Administration to Windows software is here. The Essential CD incorporates the WordCruncher text retrieval system. Every program on the disc is indexed by title, filename, PC-SIG disk number, and every word in the program description. A new utility, Narc, is implemented so you can look at the program files and the author's on-line documentation without having to first copy the program to your hard disk. By using WordCruncher and Narc, you can quickly find the program you want and review it to be sure, without ever having to run it from your hard disk. If you've got a CD-ROM player at home and want to get more use of it and your computer, or if you're trying to avoid purchasing another Nintendo cartridge, or if you just enjoy looking at new software, you need The Essential Home & Business Collection. System Requirements: IBM PC/XT/AT PS/2 or compatible with 384K memory DOS 3.1 or higher and Microsoft MS-DOS CD ROM extensions.

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.

When starting Simstat, there are three command line options that can be used: /M or -M Force monochrome color set on a computer with a color card. /E or -E Display 43 lines on an EGA or 50 lines on a VGA monitor. /C or -C Save the listing file in a compressed format. This option is useful for saving disk space when running on a laptop. The listing file will take up to 75% less disk space. You must use the EXPAND.EXE utility to uncompress the listing file. CONFIGURING SIMSTAT TO WORK WITH EXTERNAL EDITORS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SIMSTAT can be configured to automatically call external data file editors in order to edit the current data file or to create a new file. It allows the specification of up to 4 externals programs corresponding to the four types of file currently supported (LOTUS, DBASE, SPSS/PC, and ASCII). For each of those types, enter the full name of the program or batch file including the drive and directory where it resides. You can also enter any parameters normally used when calling the program from the dos prompt. To automatically include the current filename put the $f keyword where you want the filename to appear.

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.
