                                   WHAT?
                                 ---------

Tired  of  having  a  CyberVision64 with 4MB and not using 3 of them?  Then
this  small  program  might  be  useful  for you.  `Program', in this case,
should be spelled `h'-`a'-`c'-`k', though.

`AddCyberMem'  adds  a  user-specified amount of memory from the end of the
CyberVision64's  on-board  display memory to the exec list of free memory -
you  can  use  it  as if it were standard FAST memory.  By default, it gets
Priority 10, so the real FAST memory is preferred, but not the CHIP memory.


                                   USAGE
                                 ---------

The command template is KBYTES/N/A,PRIORITY/N.  Never start twice!


                                 ATTENTION
                               -------------

As  stated  previously,  this  program is a hack - this means, it might not
work  under  certain conditions or even crash the machine.  The CyberGraphX
software  seems  to require additional display memory when dragging screens
as  well  as  when  switching them, so it is most safe to use `AddCyberMem'
when the board is not in use at all.

However, I run a 1024x768x8 Workbench (few programs use bigger screens) and
don't  encounter  problems  when  stealing  2MB  from  the board.  But it's
possible  use  all 4MB if you work with the AA chipset.  Nevertheless - for
this  to  work,  the  board must be initialized - all you need to do is run
this small script, for example at the beginning of startup-sequence:

assign env: envarc:
devs:monitors/cybervision
addcybermem 4096


                                SOURCE CODE
                              ---------------

The  program  has  been  compiled  with GNU C 2.7.0.  SAS/C fanatics please
notice that the executable is smaller than this .readme ,-)


                                   LEGAL
