Update / Installation of the MovieDatabase 3.5:
-----------------------------------------------

If you want to use _all_ features of the MovieDataBase, you need to have at
least  100  MB  free  diskspace and about 4 MB Ram.  A fast processor and a
fast harddiskdrive is very recommended.

The complete database package consists of the following files: 

AMINET-Distribution:

    * imdb3_5_bin.lha    contains the main program, the documentation,
                         the 'ApplyDiffs'-utility and some ARexx-scripts.

    * the database-files in several large archives.


MovieDatabase FTP-Servers:

    * imdb3_4_Amiga.lha  contains the main program, the documentation,
                         the 'ApplyDiffs'-utility and some ARexx-scripts.

    * all #?.list.Z (or #?.list.gz) files in the database-directory.

Note: You  can  still use most of the databasefiles of older distributions.
      But  you  should  be aware that those lists are quite out of date and
      MovieMUI might refuse to update some of them.  Now is the time to get
      your local installation up-to-date!


Installation:
-------------

- Unpack the binaries-archive.  You don't need to unpack the data archives.
  The installer-script will do this for you.

- If   you   have   about  220   MB  diskspace  available, simply  run  the
  installer-script  by  double-clicking its icon.  If not, read the chapter
  about installation in the MovieMUI.guide file.

Please  report  any bugs and/or difficulties you had while installing/using
the movie database.


A short info about the MovieDataBase for new users
==================================================


The   Internet  Movie  Database  is  an  international  organization  whose
objective  is  to  provide useful and up to date movie information *freely*
available  on-line,  across  as many systems and platforms as possible.  It
currently covers over 90,000 movies with over 1,300,000 filmography entries
and is expanding continuously.

The   database  includes  filmographies  for  actors,  directors,  writers,
composers,   cinematographers,   editors,   production  designers,  costume
designers, producers and a miscellaneous catch all section; plot summaries;
character  names;  movie  ratings;  year  of  release; running times; movie
trivia;  quotes;  goofs;  soundtracks;  personal trivia; alternative names;
certificates;  color information; country of production; genres; production
companies;    sound   mix;   reference   literature;   filming   locations;
sequel/remake  information;  release dates; advertising tag lines; detailed
technical  data;  alternative versions; laserdisc availability; and Academy
Award information.

The database aims to capture any and all information associated with movies
from  across the world, starting with the earliest cinema, going through to
the  very  latest  releases  and  even  movies  still  in production.  Many
thousands  of  movies  are  covered completely from the major actors to the
minor  bit  players  and  crew members.  All the information comes from the
users of the database so please continue to support it and help it to grow.
The database is updated weekly and is available over the world wide web, an
e-mail  interface  or  for  local  installation  on  Unix, Amiga and MS-DOS
machines.

In  its  five year history the IMDb has grown from a small informal project
to  a major Internet resource.  The WWW interface to the database is one of
the  most  popular  and  well-known  sites  of any class on the web.  It is
frequently cited as a model for how to create and organise a major web site
and has received numerious awards and honours over the years.
