                     Fini "Warp" Alring of GiGA Prod.


                                 Presents
 
 
                               ·AmiNetGuide·


 
 I made it because my dowload dir, is approx. 80MB, and I simply can't cope with
it!  
 Dopus just isn't enough... ;-)
 
 
 AmiNetGuide scans the first line of all readme files in a given dir,  
 where the Short: description is located (Look at the first line of this
text!!!)
 
 It then generates an AmigaGuide, with links to both readme and it's main file.
 
 
 When you click on the filename gadget, 
 the archive will be decompressed into Ram:, or anywhere you desire.
 
 JPEG's and GIF's can be viewed by a siple click, using you preferable viewer.
 
 When you click on the Short: text the whole readme file will be shown.
 
 Sub-Dirs are shown as gadgets, and by a click, 
 you can generate a Guide for that directory too.
 
 It can put the Short:-line into the archive's filenote (comment),
 which is very useful, especially for BBS ownerS! ;-)
