AmigaNPI 1.4 - 28th December 1997

 Amiga Newton Package Installer

 Converted into Blitz2 Basic by David Fong

 Based on source code by Filip R. Zawadiak

 Based on information graciously provided by Apple Computer and Newton Inc.

AIM

 To upload packages from the Amiga to the Newton without using
 a Macintosh emulator.

 Three versions are provided. A generic WB/CLI version (v1.4),
 a CLI only version (v1.4) and another CLI only version (v0.2a).

REQUIREMENTS

 Can be used from CLI - a fast Amiga is recommended.

 Used from CLI on an Amiga 1200 with a 40 MHz 030 and the standard
 serial port, AmigaNPI consumes approximately 75% of available CPU
 processor power.  This requirement drops to about 60% if an external
 serial port (such as provided on the Surf Squirrel) is used.

 Graphical user interface requires OS 2.0 (3.0 recommended) and
 Magic User Interface v3.8.  On the same Amiga as above, AmigaNPI
 consumes 80% of available CPU power when uploading a package.

HISTORY

 1.3  - 12th December, 1997

      - BUG FIX - Considerable change in MUI handling routines. This
      will not be apparant to the user, but will hopefully result in
      more people being able to run AmigaNPI.

      - BUG FIX - Some cleaning up of the MUI display, and also
        another replacement of a VWait with a Delay_(1)

      - NEW - CLI only v1.3 provided.

      - NEW - attempts to load AmigaNPI.prefs from default directory
      first. If AmigaNPI.prefs is found in the default directory,
      then AmigaNPI will also try to save the prefs in the default
      directory. If this fails, AmigaNPI will ask permission to try
      to save AmigaNPI.prefs in the env: directory, but will only to
      env: in the NEXT attempt. (This behaviour is more Amiga User
      Interface Style Guide compliant).

 1.3a - 13th December, 1997

      - BUG FIX - Numerous fixes to MUI handling routines.

 1.4  - 28th December, 1997

      - NEW - user-definable serial device buffer length.
        Default is 64 bytes (used to be 8000 bytes!)

      - BUG FIX - AmigaNPI was ALWAYS trying to set the buffer
        length of 8000, and ALWAYS trying to set this buffer
        length for serial unit zero!  This bug has been fixed.

      - BUG FIX - fixed some misleading `usage' information
        displayed when AmigaNPI is called from CLI.
