Adds Tools, Utilites, Internet, System, Prefs and Extra entries to the
workbench menu.

It doesn't have all the features of OS3.x hacks like ToolsDaemon but it's 100%
system-friendly and doesn't use any CPU time, it only updates the menu.

If you're really lazy, you can use the menus as they are.
Otherwise use the script as a template for your own menus. It provides a good
example on how to add menus to the Workbench using ARexx, and what the
limitations are.
You might even learn a few tricks in the process.


To install:

Copy the script and its icon from S/Arexx to S:Arexx


To automatically load the menu at boot time:

Either launch Prefs/WBStartup and add it to the list, or if you're using the
SYS:WBStartup approach, copy S/ARexx/AddMenu.rexx.info to SYS:WBStartup


Open the script in a text editor for instructions on modifying it.


The menu can be removed by selecting "Extra->Menu->Remove", or by launching
it again using the icon or by typing "rx AddMenu" from the shell.
