ABOUT
-----

 RNOPDF is a compact PDF viewer having a minimal GUI with easy control options.
 It can be handy for quick viewing of PDF files if configured as the default
 PDF viewer on your operating system.

 This ECS/AGA release is an experimental and cut down version of the program
 for Amigas without graphics cards. It's a quick and dirty port with many
 features removed from the main releases on other platforms.


FEATURES
--------

 - Easy zooming using a mouse
 - Search text in documents
 - Supports document bookmarks
 - Preloads the next page for faster viewing
 - Can export PNG images in various resolutions
 - Can export pages as text files
 - Rotate options
 - Keyboard and mouse controllable
 - ARexx support


REQUIREMENTS
------------

 - At least AmigaOS 3.0, 68020, and xx MB fast RAM (more the better)
 - codesets.library (http://aminet.net/search?query=codesets)
 - reqtools.library (http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/ReqToolsLib) (1)
 - guigfx.library (http://aminet.net/package/dev/misc/guigfxlib) (2)
 - render.library (http://aminet.net/search?query=renderlib) (3)
 - OpenURL is optional, but without it you can't open web links in a browser
 - FBlit, or similar solution, is optional, because you may run out of chip
   memory otherwise (4)

   1) Older reqtools.libraries may crash and the latest one is the safest bet.

   2) Select the nofpu version for machines without a FPU to avoid crashes.
   FPU is a math coprocessor, which is integrated in 040 and 060 CPUs, but an
   optional add-on for 020 and 030 CPUs.

   3) The assembler version (v31) of render.library is better for slower CPUs.
   Also ensure that you don't use the FPU version of render.library on systems
   without a FPU, because it crashes otherwise.

   4) From the Hollywood documentation:
   "FBlit is not actually required but highly recommended because otherwise
   your chip memory will be gone in no time and Hollywood will run out of
   memory. So make sure you install FBlit first and you add Hollywood to its
   "Include" list in the "FAllocBitMap" tab. If Hollywood is included in this
   list, it will be able to place graphics in fast memory which is absolutely
   needed since 2 MB of chip memory certainly won't be enough for Hollywood.
   Using FBlit also has the advantage that Hollywood can use the CPU for
   blitting which is much faster than the blitter on higher 68k CPUs or WinUAE
   anyway."
   And if you have issues with FBlit, Picasso96 with a native chipset driver
   (http://aminet.net/package/driver/moni/Native) should do the trick too.

   *NOTE* if you still experience crashes with an 8000000B software failure,
   you're probably running a system without a FPU and some component (library)
   is still requiring a FPU. So, double check everything. And if that doesn't
   help, maybe you're running out of memory.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS AND ICON TOOLTYPES
---------------------------------------

 RNOPDF uses non-standard command line arguments. Arguments must be given
 in the form of (note the "-" prefix): -argument parameter

 Allowed arguments:
 -file <file> . . . . . - Opens a PDF file at startup
 -defdir <dir>  . . . . - Sets the initial directory to open files
 -winsize <n> . . . . . - Resizes the window by factor <n>

 Example:
 RNOPDF -file "Work:Documents/Some Book.pdf"


 The same arguments can be used as icon tooltypes, but by omitting the
 "-" prefix.

 Examples:
 DEFDIR=Work:Documents
 FILE=Work:Documents/Book.pdf

HISTORY
-------

 Version 0.1:
 - Initial test release for ECS/AGA machines. Based loosely on the version 1.4
   of the RNOPDF program for other platforms. This version is missing the UI,
   fullscreen, and other options for now, so uses hybrid version numbering.
