Are you also tired of having your entire Startup-Sequence full of assigns?

I was, so I searched AmiNet for something useful and found this beauty written
by none other than Thomas Frieden ©1993 DIgital DImensions. Well the GUI was
GadTools and it was 68k, but the source was included, and it was public domain.
I ripped the code apart, and added a ReAction GUI to it.

From the guide, inside this archive, overview section:
---
If you use assigns in your startup-sequence you will pretty soon have a very
large file. AssignPrefs simplifies this by reducing all assign calls into
just one. With AssignPrefs, you can enter a number of assigns, save them in a
file and assign them by a simple programm call in startup-sequence, or by
double clicking on the icon.

AssignPrefs can be used from Workbench or CLI. It uses a full GadTools GUI
to edit your list of assigns, and it stores these lists with or without an
icon. If saved with an icon, you can assign the list by double clicking on
the project icon. For further detail, see  Workbench Usage .

AssignPrefs can also be used to make assigns for games, applications etc.
You can save the assigns in the program's directory, and before running the
program, you can make the assigns it needs by double clicking the icon.

AssignPrefs also supports assignment now availible in 37: Late, Add and Path.

History:
--------
1.05 - Fixed a serious bug that could crash AssignPrefs.
     - Fixed a memleak.

1.04 - Fixed the assigntype always being "Locked".
     - Cancel should work within requesters now.

1.03 - Ported to OS4 and converted to ReAction by Joachim Birging.


Future:
-------
Perhaps add the ability to select and add assigns already available?
