DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE (General Information) 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. 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 distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distri- bute the software, either to all and sundry, or to a specific group. 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. ============================================================================== II. DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT USERS OF LINGUAPRO/SPANISH(TM) MUST ACCEPT THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY: "LINGUAPRO/SPANISH IS SUPPLIED AS IS. THE AUTHOR DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTIES 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 LINGUAPRO/SPANISH". ============================================================================== III. LINGUAPRO DISTRIBUTION AND REGISTRATION LinguaPro/SPANISH 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 LinguaPro/SPANISH after a 30 day trial period, you must make a registration payment of $39.95 to Schulenberg & Associates, Inc. The $39.95 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 LinguaPro/SPANISH must register and pay for their copies of LinguaPro/SPANISH within 30 days of first use or their license is withdrawn. Site-License arrangements may be made by contacting Schulenberg and Associates, Inc. Anyone distributing LinguaPro/SPANISH for any kind of remuneration must first contact Schulenberg and Associates, Inc. at the address below for authorization. This authorization will be automatically granted to distributors recognized by the ASP (Association of Shareware Professionals) as adhering to its guidelines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin offering LinguaPro/SPANISH immediately (However Schulenberg and Associates must still be advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date with the latest version of LinguaPro/SPANISH). You are welcome to pass a copy of LinguaPro/SPANISH 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 a copy of the latest version of the LinguaPro/SPANISH system, together with all of the additional vocabulary and verb files described below. Please complete the registration form REGISTER.DOC that is included with LinguaPro/SPANISH. You may pay by check, money order, or by credit card. Customers outside of the United States should pay by credit card, or by a postal money order drawn on US dollars. Thank you. ============================================================================== IV. INSTALLATION PROCEDURES The SHAREWARE version of Lingua/Pro SPANISH is distributed through Shareware vendors and computer bulletin board systems as a single compressed file using PKZIP version 2.04g. This compressed file exists in two forms: LPROSP22.ZIP (Bulletin Boards) LPROSP22.EXE (Floppy disk) If you have downloaded LinguaPro v2.20 from a bulletin board then you must utilize PKUNZIP (v. 2.04) to expand the files. PKZIP and PKUNZIP are available as self-expanding downloadable files on almost all BBS's. If you have obtained LinguaPro from a floppy disk then you will have an EXE file that will self-expand simply by typing "LPROSP22". Once expanded, the LPROSP22.ZIP or LPROSP22.EXE files may be deleted to conserve disk space. If you pass this software on to your friends to try, please give them one of these original files, and NOT the internal files. Since the PKZIP'ed files are self-authentifying, this procedure ensures that no files are lost and that there is no possibility for the introduction of a virus. After the expansion of the compressed file you will have the following disk files: ---------------------------- files for vendors/sysops --------------------- FILE_ID.DIZ Special description file used by Bulletin Board SYSOPs to label and catalog uploaded files VENDOR.DOC Information useful to Shareware vendors and BBS Sysops --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- user information/documentation ------------------ README.DOC *** THIS FILE *** REGISTER.DOC Registration Form UGUIDE.DOC User's Guide OMBUDSMN.DOC Information about the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP) --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- LinguaPro System Files -------------------------- LP.EXE The LinguaPro/SPANISH(TM) Executable program file LP.LIB LinguaPro/SPANISH(TM) Library File SPANISH.VRB Database file for VERB Reference Facility containing approximately 300 fully defined and conjugated verbs --------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- LinguaPro Data Files -------------------------- SHARE1.SPA Spanish Vocabulary File (SHAREWARE version) containing about 1,000 words. TVERB1.SPA Spanish VERB Phrase File containing 76 fully conjugated verbs and verb phrases. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- After LinguaPro has executed for the first time, three additional files will be generated automatically: USORT.BIN LinguaPro/SPANISH System File SPA.BIN Compression/Decompression File for Spanish TVERB1.SPC File which "remembers" your last choice of verb tenses, verbs, and persons. NOTE: On slower PCs the file USORT.BIN may require 5 minutes or so for generation. The screen display will keep you advised as to the status of the construction process. This is a one-shot operation so please be patient. Once you have gotten familiar enough with the vocabulary file to begin to "kill" words that have been mastered, then you will also see the following file: KILLED.SPA NOTE: Due to the difficulty (and cost) of uploading and downloading large files, the Shareware version of LinguaPro/SPANISH has been kept as small as possible by reducing the number and sizes of its associated data files. For example, the file SHARE1.SPA contains about 1,000 words randomly extracted from the 18,000 word vocabulary that is shipped with the registered version. Similarly, the TVERB1.SPA that is provided with the Shareware version will drill you on the first 76 verbs (or verbform variations). We will ship four additional such files, however, when we send you the registered copy. Finally, the 300 or so verbs provided in the SPANISH.VRB file (accessible via the 'V' command) is provided solely to illustrate the capability of the full-fledged system. The complete 5,000+ verb file is far too large (200,000 bytes) to include in a downloadable version. ============================================================================== V. BENEFITS OF REGISTRATION The registration fee is only $39.95 plus $5.00 S&H (United States). You must add 8.25% Sales Tax if you live in Texas. The order form is contained in the file REGISTER.DOC. Payment methods and shipping/handling information for international purchasers are described as well. When you have registered you will be licensed for the unlimited use of a single copy of LinguaPro/SPANISH. You will also receive the following: 1. The latest version of LinguaPro/SPANISH. 2. Five Vocabulary Files comprising over 18,000 Spanish words: LEVEL1.SPA, LEVEL2.SPA, LEVEL3.SPA, LEVEL4.SPA, and LEVEL5.SPA. These vocabulary files are graded so that the most common 4,000 words appear in LEVEL1, and the least common words appear in LEVEL5. 3. Four additional VERB Phrase Files containing 304 more fully conjugated verbs and verb phrases: TVERB2.SPA, TVERB3.SPA, TVERB4.SPA and TVERB5.SPA. LinguaPro/SPANISH will utilize these files to produce a virtually unlimited number of unique sentences that will exhibit all important aspects of the key verbs: all major shades of meaning; the conjugation pattern for all tenses and persons; the use of the verbs in actual complete sentences; and additional vocabulary that naturally goes with the verb. 4. Seven VERB Files containing 532 high-frequency Spanish verbs, as well as rarer forms, that cover all conjugation patterns. These files do not cause complete sentences to be generated. 5. An expanded SPANISH.VRB file for the LinguaPro VERB Reference Facility that provides the definitions and complete conjugation patterns (for rapid on-line lookup) for over 5,000 Spanish verbs. 6. A special vocabulary file called VRBINDEX.SPA which is designed to be used in conjunction with the Verb Reference Facility. It contains the definitions for the 5,000 verbs supported by the VRF and allows the user to master the definitions of these verbs and consult the VRF for the relevant conjugation patterns when necessary. 7. Future notifications of upgrades, as well as announcements of LinguaPro versions for French, German, and Italian. Upgrades will be available to registered owners of LinguaPro/SPANISH at a considerably reduced price. In addition, registered users of LinguaPro/SPANISH will receive free support for a period of 3 months following the date of registration. This support is available by mail, or via Compuserve Email. Please see the UGUIDE.DOC for our phone number, FAX number, and Compuserve ID. The registered copy will be shipped within 48 hours of our receipt of your order. If for any reason the delivery will be delayed, you will be notified immediately. If delivery cannot be made within a reasonable time, your check or money order will be returned, or credit card orders will be credited back to your account. ============================================================================== *** FEATURES UNDER DEVELOPMENT *** The following features are currently under development for Release 2.3 and 2.4 of LinguaPro/SPANISH. Registered users of release 2.20 will be notified by mail of the upcoming release and will be able to obtain, and register, their upgrade at a greatly reduced price: 1. Major enhancements to the FLASHCARD Facility for VERBS (the SENTENCE Generator): a) Expanded set of subject noun and pronoun forms. b) Support for Interrogative sentences. c) Expanded treatment of Subjunctive forms. d) Enhancement of the presentation of Conditional forms. e) Additional semantic filters to improve the clarity and reasonableness of all synthesized sentences. 2. Expansion of the Dictionary Facility to permit the user to construct and access an unlimited number of "external", specialized vocabulary files. For example: Medical terms Legal terms Business terms Petrochemical terms Geological terms Golden Age Literature (obsolete and rare words) Slang and Vulgarisms Regional Vocabulary (e.g., Mexico, Cuba, Chicano, ...) ... These vocabulary files will be available to the Dictionary Facility so that a given word can be "searched" in a particular external file, or else ALL assigned external files can be searched. These vocabulary files, of course, may also be directly loaded into LinguaPro/SPANISH so that they are accessible to the FLASHCARD facility. 3. Additional Vocabulary and VERB Files, e.g., a. IDIOMS -- idiomatic expressions b. Verb Phrase Files c. Specialized vocabulary files 4. Expansion of the Verb Reference System (VRF) to provide multi- screen expanded definitions of verbforms. This will be divided into Transitive and Intransitive usages of the verb, and each of these sections will be subdivided based on: a. Field of use (Legal, Industry, Business, Nautical, ...) b. Colloquial/Familiar meanings c. Vulgar/Slang meanings and all common phrases illustrating specialized usages of the verb form will be included in the appropriate sections. 5. An ANNOTATION Facility will be added to LinguaPro that should be of special interest to scholars. The Annotation Facility will consist of a data base containing the following: a. Author List -- Names of Spanish authors b. Titles List -- Titles and publication dates of literary works belonging to authors in the Author List c. Sample sentences keyed to a primary word (noun, verb, etc.) and entered by the user. d. User notes. The Annotation Facility will allow a user to register an author and title when beginning to read (or translate) a work. Sample sentences extracted from the work can be added by the user. These sentences will be keyed both by the author/title and by the primary word. Page numbers can be added as well to pinpoint the occurrence of the sentence in the text. General notes and comments can be added in a similar manner, again, keyed to an author/title/page. A report program will be provided that will permit hardcopy listings of sample sentences by: a. Author b. Author and Title c. Key word NOTE: The Annotation Facility will be just as useful to persons working with English texts. ============================================================================== Thank you for evaluating our product.

HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS ===================== LinguaPro/SPANISH requires a PC with a hard disk and floppy drive. CGA video will work, but EGA or VGA is recommended so that accent marks on Spanish words are more discernible. The Shareware version of the program requires 460K of available RAM and 700K available disk space. The registered version requires 510K of available RAM and 2 meg. available disk space. LinguaPro/SPANISH has been tested with DOS 3.3, 4.01, 5.0, and 6.0, and should work with earlier versions as well. PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS ==================== (SHORT) A multi-faceted program for serious students of Spanish. Offers an 18,000 word user-modifiable online DICTIONARY, a sophisticated FLASHCARD system for the mastery of the GRADED 18,000 word supplied vocabulary, and a UNIQUE VERB flashcard system that teaches Spanish verbs in all tenses and persons using millions of COMPLETE SENTENCES. LinguaPro may also be used for the flashcarding of ENGLISH vocabulary and general QUESTION/ANSWER information. (MEDIUM) A multi-faceted program for the more serious students of Spanish. LinguaPro is a PROFESSIONAL quality program at a Shareware-level price. It provides an extremely fast 18,000 word online DICTIONARY system for word and definition lookup. The program provides a GRADED (5 level) vocabulary set and easy-to- use machinery that lets the user add more words, or create entirely new vocabulary sets. LinguaPro provides a sophisticated FLASHCARD system that will teach the user THOUSANDS (some or all of the 18,000 word starter dictionary) of Spanish words with a paced introduction of new words, and continual review of words that are giving trouble. LinguaPro teaches Spanish VERB CONJUGATIONS using a UNIQUE approach. Users may select verbs, desired tenses, moods, and persons. LinguaPro utilizes its standard flashcard approach, but verb forms are presented to the user in MILLIONS of complete, and different, SENTENCES. A Verb Reference System provides an authoritative reference for Spanish verbs including complete definition and conjugation information. LinguaPro may additionally be used for the construction of ENGLISH vocabulary sets, or data files containing general QUESTION/ANSWER-type information (e.g., historical dates, legal terminology, states and capitols, etc.). All such files can be drilled using the LinguaPro flashcard system. (long) A multi-faceted program for the more serious students of Spanish. LinguaPro is a professional quality program at a Shareware-level price. It is really a language learning system that is evolving to satisfy two separate classes of users. On the one hand, it is ideal for beginners because its flashcard system permits the rapid mastery of a large amount of vocabulary, while the verb conjugation system cuts through the complexity of Spanish verbs by drilling selected verbs, tenses, and persons utilizing a limitless number of complete, and interesting, sentences. At the other extreme, the online dictionary and verb reference system will be greatly useful to Spanish scholars and trans- lators that require rapid access to the definitions of Spanish words, the ability to add their own words (especially words that are, e.g., obsolete, poetic, provincial, vulgar, regional, etc.), and accurate conjugation infor- mation for Spanish verbs. The registered version of LinguaPro/SPANISH provides an initial set of dictionary files presenting 18,000 high-frequency Spanish words in 5 graded levels. The Verb Reference database file contains the definitions and complete conjugation patterns for over 5,000 Spanish verbs. The LinguaPro/SPANISH "system" provides 4 major capabilities: a Flashcard facility for vocabulary items, a Flashcard facility for verbforms (utilizing complete, synthesized sentences), an online Dictionary that can be used for reference or for the construction of vocabulary sets to be "flashcarded", and a Verb Reference System that provides complete definitions and conjugation patterms for over 5,000 Spanish verbs. The Flashcard system for vocabulary provides a "clustering" feature that guarantees that the user is always given an optimal mix of new words and previously-missed words. Users may drill from Spanish to English or English to Spanish. Words that have been mastered may be "killed" (removed from the active file and moved into a special archival file). This flashcarding approach is ideal for rapidly learning thousands of words. The Flashcard system for verbforms works in a similar manner. The user selects the tenses and moods (15 in all), a desired set of verbs, the persons (I, you, we, they, etc.), and may even specify that the user is a female, or that optional subject pronouns should be suppressed. The "flashcarding" process SYNTHESIZES an unlimited number of complete, grammatical, sentences utilizing the verbs, tenses, etc., specified by the user. An optional autoconjugation feature will continually show the complete conjugation for the verb in the selected tense at the completion of the entry. The Online Dictionary supports up to 6 loaded vocabulary files and provides a total capacity of up to 18,000 words (depending on the amount of memory available) in "working" files, and an unlimited number in an external file (the "killed" file containing words already mastered). Words may be looked up from Spanish to English or English to Spanish. On a 486, a lookup may take less that .05 seconds (to go through 18,000 words). Users may move words from one vocabulary file to another, modify words and/or definitions, or add new words. All vocabulary files constructed via the Online Dictionary are available to the Flashcard system. The Dictionary is especially adaptable to the needs of translators or avid readers of Spanish literature. The Verb Reference Facility is integrated both with the Flashcard system and the Online Dictionary. It provides almost instantaneous access to the complete definition and conjugation patterns of over 5,000 verbs (in the registered version). This is being expanded to include over 15,000 verb conjugations and definitions in a future release.
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.
