RoxBlanker III -- Copyright 1992 Sleepless Software  All Rights Reserved
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author     : Joe Hitchens
Created    : December 11, 1991 (or thereabouts)
Last update: Wed,  8 Apr 92
Version    : 8.4.92

RoxBlanker III is a fancy Amiga screenblanker program. It blanks
the screen by running animation files which were created with a
program called Roxanne. It is based on the original RoxBlanker
which was launched by SleepyCron at idle time. This version is
a standalone version that does not require SleepyCron.
But get SleepyCron anyway, because it's way cool.

This is the latest version of RoxBlanker ... Version 3

There was a bug in version 2 which caused the program to crash
on some machines.  It was NOT a bug in my code but was in fact
something which my C compiler did incorrectly when using it's
optimization option.

This version also has the addition of a TIMEOUT keyword to specify
the blanking time and a VERSION keyword to cause the program to
print the exact version of the program which you have.

I would like to thank those people who sent me e-mail about
RoxBlanker and especially to Mark Hazen whose patience and help
allowed me to find the bug.
