Introduction:

    Fontaloger is a Final Writer ARexx macro which will print all fonts in a
    specified path. The font name will be printed using a common font and a 
    test string will be printed using the actual font. 

    Since Fontaloger prints each page as is it created, clears the document,
    and starts the next page on an empty document, there is no limit to the
    number of fonts, or pages of fonts which can be cataloged. In contrast,
    accumulation (as a single Final Writer document) of a large font catalog
    could exceed the available memory of an 8 MB Amiga.

    A catalog page can contain one, two, or three columns of font samples,
    allowing 15, 56, and 108 samples per page respectively. You can choose
    from these based on your preferences and available memory. Fontaloger has
    two sorting modes and two page format options and allows the user to save
    each page as a Final Writer document or create a sorted ASCII fonts 
    listing.

Revision History:

    V1.2 (03-Sep-98) :

        * Added new page format which lists font name and path for each font.

        * Added "sort by font name, then path" option.

        * Changed header page numbering format from "Page x" to "Page x of y".

        * Increased maximum font name/path length from 37 characters to 74.

        * Corrected error in tallying of bad files.

        * Bell no longer sounds between pages in 'Autoprint' mode.

        * Moved page size setting to GETCONFIG section.

        * Various minor bug fixes

    V1.11 (26-May-98) :

        * Fixed coding mistake in "Page Prompt" mode requester to "print page
        again".

    V1.1 (20-Feb-98) :

        * Added auto-identification of font files via verification of
        first two bytes of file.

        * Fixed a bug which prevented Fontaloger from scanning a device's
        root directory (i.e. Work:).

        * Changed 'Test' option in print mode requester to "List to file"
        option which creates a list of fonts in a file in the RAM Disk.

        * Changed the order of the startup requesters - print mode before
        the number of columns.

        * Removed automatic 'Quit' ARexx command to FW by Fontaloger. 

        * Added a beep to the page prompt - V1.0 did not have this even
        though the .doc file said it did.

    V1.0 (5-Feb-98) : Initial release
