    This package is If_you_don't_send_me_some_thing_I'll_kill_the_cat_Ware.

    You may think "Ho god, another set of libraries for my poor little blitz"...
 But     what a set.. ;-)

    So ?!?

    This new set of libraries has been designed to definitively erradicate  old,
 big     and slow other libraries (pretentious isn't it ?).

    Well, the fact is that since I made them I  nearly  never  use  the  old 
ones...
    especially  WindowsLib,  ScreensLib,  MemAccLib,  PrintLib...  and  nearly 
every     others... ;-)

    What's cool ?

      Size...

      All libs are really small. You can expect about 3 Ko for a program  witch 
open       fancy screen and some windows.

      Libraries are really oriented... for exemple Screen and Window related
function       are in the same library...

      Efficiency...

      Well I am very proud of most of the functions as they are  smaller  and 
really       more powerful than the old (and some of the new) ones.

      For exemple the function StrRight  (or  StrLeft)  replaces  Right$,  RSet$
 and       UnRight$  in a very easy and compact way... adding, more over, some
features as       Pading with a special char...

      Is you have ever try ARexx (like me ;-) you have been certainely
disapointed by       Blitz  functions  (like  me  ;-),  and  particuliarly
string related functions,       convertion functions... This set is for you...
definitely.

      Independence...

      Libraries and functions are totaly independent... you can  use  them  as 
C/C++       functions...  You  will  also  probably  notice  some  similitudes 
with AmigaE       (LotanIntuition, LotanSystem...) and ARexx (LotanConvert,
LotanString...)

      That's why libraries are sooooooo  small,  if  a  function  already 
exists  in       AmigaOS,  I  don't rethink the wheel... For example you won't
find WindowMove()
      in LotanIntution as the AmigaOS function already exists and is very 
simple  to       use...

    What's Cool

      Pointers...

      You will quickly notice that I don't speak about objects... The fact is
that  I       don't use them... because yeuuuuuurk... ;-) It's the first reason
;-)

      This is probably a new universe to you if you are a beginner  or  if  you 
have       never try anything different... But trust me you will love pointers.

      In this brand new world forget Addr Screen(0)... now you must use logical
names       : *MyScreen... see examples... you will quicly understand.

      Sure...

      Really sure... if you don't do stupid things like closing a screen with
windows       on it, draw on file... or cooking your cat with mustard.

      All functions are totaly OS friendly (100% Garanty HardWare hiting  free 
+  12
      vitamins and iron).

      And as usual all resources used are freed :  windows,  screens  and  files
 are       closed, allocated memory freed... the haven for you ;-)
