    	BindNames V2.0 by Dave Haynie
        (Ver 36.19 modified for AmigaDOS 2.04+ By Robert Hardy)

BindNames is a rather simple hack I came up with to solve the "Assign"
problem.  Like most folks with large hard disks containing lots of
different programs, my Startup-Sequence was starting to get full of
Assign statements.  While that alone isn't necessarily enough to make
most go out and write a program, I was starting to think of this as an
inelegance.  Nearly every other new program I installed onto my system
needed a new set of logical names, and so for every new program I
ended up having to edit my Startup-Sequence.  I also had to pay
attention to the ordering of Assignments, since obviously I couldn't
base an assignment on one that hadn't been made yet.  The end result
was that the Startup Sequence was getting rather ugly, with no sign of
change on the immediate horizon.

Since problems should be solved by those who see them, I came up with
BindNames.  BindNames is designed to do all of the logical name
assignments you need at once.  It looks for any number of files in the
directory "SYS:Names".
