  APRIL: A FidoNet Technology compatible tosser and editor for the Commodore
         Amiga line of personal computers, specially aimed at points. A lot of
         time was used to make April as user-friendly as possible, without
         making her too slow or too inflexible. Together with a mailer like
         Trapdoor it's simple to set up a good working pointsystem.


  Version 1.08 SAS C source code release

  Hello,

  Dear April user, this is the source that is used to create the
  complete April program. The source is now available in this package and
  comes as it is. You are free to change any part of it, as long as you
  take in mind that you agree to the terms of the GNU license.

  We hope that you have enjoyed the use of April as we have enjoyed to
  create the program. Special thanks go to: Nick de Jong the main
  programmer of April, Wilfred van Velzen who converted the complete
  version from AZTEC C to SAS, Rob van Schaik the moderator of April area,
  Thomas Newsom English support and connection.

  Last words about April, most updates are bug fixes and minor changes.
  Hope This source can be of any use to you.

  And do not forget the terms of the GNU license.

  Bye,

  Jasper.

  3 September 1999

  Hi,

  This is the source code release of April. We (Jasper and Wilfred)
  decided to release the sources, because we don't have the time any
  more to develop it further, and our interests have shifted to other
  things. And since we couldn't find anyone who wanted to continue
  development, the decision was easy.

  But I'm still using April on an allmost daily basis, to read my fido
  and internet mail, and enjoying every minute of it. So if you do
  intend to do some devellopment on the april sources I would like
  to hear about it!

  Thanks, Wilfred.

  How to compile to a working April
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Use the SAS 6.58 C compiler.

  First execute the 'mgst' batch file in the source directory to build the
  'april.gst' file. This speeds up the compiling of the modules
  considerably. (Btw, if you change any of the .h files you should
  repeat this!)
  
  Second just compile it by running 'smake' in the source directory.
  There will be one compiler warning:

  april.c 32 Warning 72: conflict with previous declaration
                         See line 104 file "include:dos.h"

  But you can ignore it.



  Known bugs
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------


  - Sometimes "Amiga + Some other key(s)" functions, call the wrong
    functions.

  - The Rescan function marks some areas with the Export flag, while
    there aren't any messages to export.

    (If you do export with these bogus flags still on, you get memory
    leaks.)

  - After you do a forward of a message, April might crash afterwards if
    you use some functions.

  - If you reply to a message with a '"' character in the From: field
    the quoting function makes a mess of it.

  - After you reply to a message you should go back to the AreaMenu or
    the NamesMenu and specialy don't hit the down button for the next
    message, because april will crash the machine otherwise.



  Support
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Well actually there is none or very little, at least not by us (Jasper
  & Wilfred). Jasper stopped programming for april because he has moved
  to the PC mainly, and there isn't much interest in April anyway.

  But questions about this source and april can still be asked:

  1) There is a mailing list. To subscribe send an email to
  <april-subscribe at egroups.com>.

  2) In the Netherlands there is a Fidonet Echomail area called
  'APRIL' that's still spread through the network (a link with the
  English Fidonet can also be made if there's a need?).
  But I don't know how long this area will still be active.
  
  3) You can mail us direct:

  Email                 : Wilfred van Velzen <wvv at email.com>
  Fido net- or crashmail: Wilfred van Velzen, 2:280/464
  AmigaNet "            : Wilfred van Velzen, 39:150/200

  Email                 : Jasper Bouwhuis <jabotron at ethermail.demon.nl>



  Additional things available
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  An installable compiled version of April v1.08 including utils and
  arexx scripts is available on the web:

  <http://redrival.com/aobl/software.html>


  There are also additional sources available if you want them:

  - The original sources by Nick de Jong upto 1993 (or 1994?).
  - The sources for Aztec C April version by Jasper Bouwhuis upto 1996.
  - Development snapshots of the SAS version from 1996 - 1998.
