WBStart is a package  to  emulate  the  Workbenchs'  method  of  starting
programs. Emulating this method seems to  be  easy  on  the  first  look,
because you only have to load a program, create a process and then send a
Workbench startup message to it.

But complications arise from this startup message. It  contains  pointers
to memory and directory locks owned by your process and it  will  not  be
returned until the newly created Workbench process exits. So your process
can't quit until ALL Workbench processes which have been started by  your
process are finished. If you don't wait the replied messages will go into
nowhere land and the man from India will visit you.

WBStart solves this problem by using a handler process, which  loads  the
program, creates the process, sends the message and then  waits  for  the
reply. You just supply all  needed  information  like  program  name  and
arguments in a library call. The handler copies this information so  your
program can free its resources and exit.

Changes since WBStart 2.1:

   - Added "Caveats" and "Credits" section.
   - Added Assembler and Oberon support files.
   - Clarified directory lock usage in AutoDoc entry for WBStartTagList().
   - Fixed problems with softlinks and project icons introduced in 2.1.
   - Now uses dospath.library for AmigaDOS path list handling.
