*******************************************
*  Roadie - A little helper for Roadshow  *
*******************************************
*      Version 1.3 - 24th June 2019       *
*******************************************

-------------------------------------------
 So what exactly is this anyway?
-------------------------------------------

This is a small commodity designed as a companion for Roadshow, the TCP/IP stack
by Olaf Barthel. Note that I am in no way affiliated with Olaf or Roadshow! So
if you have issues relating to *this* piece of software please give me a shout!

Run Commands:
- Go Online (if you're not already)
- Go Offline (if you're not already)
- Show Net Status (an overview of current Local IP|Gateway|DNS)
- Get Net Status (information on your current networking with Roadshow)
- Ping a given IP/Host (by default uses Googles main DNS server)

Edit Configuration files (Please see notice below!):
- Interface files
- Nameservers (DNS)
- Default Gateway (routing)

Also you can:
- Quit (run away!)

ARexx Commands (Default port is ROADIE)
- ONLINE                        [ Go Online ]
- OFFLINE                       [ Go Offline ]
- SHOW                          [ Show the main Roadie interface ]

The Icon has four optional tooltypes:
- CX_POPUP=YES|NO               [ Defaults to YES if not set ]
- CX_POPKEY=ctrl lcommand help  [ this can be changed by the user ]
- AREXXPORT=ROADIE              [ this can be changed by the user ]
- AUTOCONNECT=YES|NO            [ Defaults to NO if not set ]

-------------------------------------------

          ********************
          * IMPORTANT NOTICE *
          ********************

- Editing the configuration files will overwrite them with the data
  you have entered!
- I have not included all fields in the editing windows, so if you have
  advanced settings not shown they won't be saved!
- I strongly suggest backing up the following files before editing the
  configuration with this software:
  - DEVS:NetInterfaces/#?
  - DEVS:Internet/name_resolution
  - DEVS:Internet/routes
   
-------------------------------------------
 Requirements:
-------------------------------------------

- An Amiga with
* KS2.0+   [ It uses GadTools, sorry ]
* An 020+  [ I'm not 100% sure why, I hope to get it working on 000 ]

- Roadshow TCP/IP Stack Installed [ Well Obviously ]

-------------------------------------------
 Launching the App:
-------------------------------------------

A simple double click should do it, I'm using GadTools and have attempted
to keep it self contained.

On startup it performs two checks:

1 - Does C:GetNetStatus exist (as a way to see if Roadshow is installed or
    not, as well as check if we're online). If it can't find this command,
    Roadie will quit
    
2 - The subversion number of the ping command. If it is 11 (as in 4.11) it
    won't allow you to utilise ping. This is due to a known bug in that
    version of ping that causes hard lockups - if you get a message about
    this there are updated versions of Roadshow available
