        WinUAE Version 1.5.3 minimum. 
        Standard OS3.0x install or better.

History.
--------

01-08-2013.
Version 1.00.00:- Original upload to AMINET...

This is dedicated entirely to the AMIGA community and AMINET and will not
be uploaded elsewhere.

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

To install just download the "BIG_TIME.py.txt" file and rename it to
"BIG_TIME.py" without the quotes. Drag this file into your PYTHON:
volume and...

From a minimum of Python Version 1.4.0 prompt:-

>>> exec(open("PYTHON:BIG_TIME.py").read())<CR>

And away you go...

This code is/was designed to work in all versions of Python from 1.4.0
to 3.3.2 on at least the platforms shown in the Architectures: section.

It was developed entirely on a Macbook Pro OSX 10.7.5 and finalised using
MEmacs for the AMIGA.

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

This is just a simple DEMO to show how to generate large digits in Python
and put them to use as an _AT_A_GLANCE_ digital clock.

It starts up by generating all of the characters available for the DEMO
for five seconds then goes into the clock proper.

As this code is multi platform AND multi Python version then it is issued
as GPL2...

Enjoy finding simple solutions to often very difficult problems...

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

    Testing Evaluation:-
    --------------------

    All WinUAE, E-UAE and Classic AMIGA test conditions were/are running
    standard OS3.0x/OS3.1x and using standard ~topaz 8~ fonts throughout.

    I have no idea what strange configuration setups will create so refer
    to the ~The Legal Stuff~ above.
