    What it does:
    -------------

    MoreTools is a simple utility able to add items  to the Workbench
  "Tools" menu to run programs or execute commands; you can also pass
  them a parameter by selecting some icons before.


    Disclaimer:
    -----------

    This program is provided "as is", without any kind of warranty. I
  have taken every care  in developing it,  but I am not  renponsible
  of any damage it can cause. Use it a your own risk.

    MT is freeware/e-mailware:it can be copied and distributed freely
  on the condition that no profit is gained from its distribuition.
  If you find it useful please send me an e-mail or a postcard;
    my snail-mail address is:

    Usage:
    ------

    MT can be started:
  - from Wb, putting it in the "Wb-startup" drawer or double-clicking
    on its icon or on the project icon of a menu-description file;
  - from CLI,  using the command  "run >NIL: MoreTools".  You can put
    this command in your startup-sequence too (_after_ "LoadWb").
    The configuration  file  is "s:MTData"  by default;  you can  use
  another file specifying it in tooltypes or passing it as parameter.


    Configuration file:
    -------------------

    You can write it with whatever text-editor; for every item to add
  you have to specify some data (see MoreTools.guide) like:

    ITEM      date and time
    COMMAND   date
    OUTPUT    CON:0/40/640/150/date and time/auto/close/wait 
  


    Changes from 1.x version:
    ----------------------------
     - Mostly rewritten and changed internal data structure; now
       it is easier to add new features
     - fixed enforcer-hits when launcing programs;
     - now it is possible to define the stdout  for a command; 
     - stack size read from command's icon  if it exists;
     - MT can be started from the project icon of a config.-file;
     - no more memory leak when closing an asl.requester  without
       choosing something;
     - characters<ASCII 32 in config. file are changed in spaces;
     - doc in Amigaguide format.
