This is the official continuation of the famous (and fabulous :-)
system monitor from Andreas Gelhausen.


What is Scout?
==============

Scout is a tool that allows you to monitor your computer system. It displays
many different things -- like tasks, ports, assigns, expansion boards, resident
commands, interrupts, etc. -- and you can perform some certain actions on them.

For example you can freeze tasks, close windows and screens, release semaphores
or remove locks, ports and interrupts.

Through AmiTCP it's also possible to use Scout as a TCP/IP service.

Since version 2.0 of Scout you can use nearly all implemented functions through
shell parameters. Therefore it's not necessary to install MUI for using Scout,
but you will need MUI if you want to use Scout with its graphical user
interface.

BTW: Scout can open 49 different windows! :-)

PS: Along with V3.3 this number is even higher than 49, but I am too lazy to
count all the different windows :)


Changes from release 3.5 to release 3.6:
========================================

  o scout_window_detail.c: now displays correctly number of colours for
    32bit screens.

  o scout_resethandlers.c: the OS4 specific list of reset callbacks is now
    also scanned for entries, because the list of reset handlers is normally
    not used anymore.

  o scout_fonts.c, scout_fonts_details.c: added tf_Extension field, if a font
    offers this.

  o scout_arexx.c: added the missing remove function for reset handlers.
    Until now this has never been implemented. Also the last direct poking in
    the base structure of input.device to obtain the list of input handlers
    has been replaced by a proper function which acts the same way as does
    the scanning function in scout_inputhandlers.c.

  o scout_tasks.c: added now function which returns the usual name of all
    known signal bits.

  o scout_tasks_details.c: the old Task field tc_TrapAlloc and tc_TrapAble
    don't exist anymore for OS4. Instead they always represent a pointer
    called tc_ETask. Hence this one is shown now. Furthermore Scout can now
    recognize a process' code type by using the new V51 DOS function
    GetSegListInfo(). Additionally for OS4 the SegList pointers are now
    obtained via GetProcSegList() instead of hacking through pr_SegList and
    pr_CLI->cli_Module. If there is a clean way, then USE IT!

  o scout_tasks_details.c: added the extended V50/V51 process fields. These
    will only appear in the OS4 build.

  o scout_window_details.c added the embedded fields ViewPort, RastPort,
    Bitmap (and all attributes) and LayerInfo of "struct Screen". Therefore
    the entries "UserPort->SigTask" and "WindowPort->SigTask" of "struct
    Window" have been dropped since these can be inspected by clicking on
    the port button.

  o scout_mount_details.c: the capacity calculation is now done with native
    64bit math for the OS4 and MorphOS builds. Hence i64.c is no longer
    needed for these, but only for the OS3 build, because SAS/C cannot do
    64bit math itself.

  o scout_extras.c, tblib/errormsg_ErrorMsg.c: somehow I never realized that
    exec/RawDoFmt() cannot do parameter sorting by using something like
    "Hello %2$s %1$s", "second", "first". Hence the function ErrorMsg() got
    always passed one parameter too less and that completely crashed on OS4.
    The catalog description has been modified accordingly. The prototype for
    ErrorMsg() was missing the usual "VARARGS68K" definition anyway.
    All in all this made Scout crash when it tried to complain about outdated
    or missing external MUI classes.

  o scout_print.c: somehow I deleted a NULL-check before copying one string
    to another, which caused crashes when trying to print information of a
    window to a file.

  o lots of minor changes.
