This small program allows you to display on the Workbench title bar
information about the current parameters of the screen, such as:
width,
height,
number of bits per pixel,
pixel format (optional),
refresh rate (optional).

Usage:
1) run the program from the icon (important!), it is best to copy the program
   with the icon to Sys:WBStartup
2) set the system variable in the VAR tooltype where the information will be
   saved
3) using programs that change the txt displayed on the WB bar (MCP, AOS3.2
   etc) write the necessary information in a convenient place
4) in the absence of the above, you can use the display of information
   directly by the program (not recommended)

To terminate the program, send it a Break/Ctrl-C signal, e.g. using Scout-type
programs. It will end at the next WB scan.

Configuration:
Configuration is done through Tooltype fields in the program icon. The
individual options are:
a) VAR - system variable in which information will be saved
b) SCANDELAY - delay between checking WB screen parameters in seconds
c) SHOWPIXFMT - adding pixel format display (option)
d) SHOWVBL - adding information about the refresh rate of a given graphics
   mode (option, note - it may be imprecise/erroneous)
e) SHOWONTB - enabling (non-optimal) support for displaying information on the
   WB bar directly by the program.


The program was created as a by-product of playing with the AmigaE (EVO)
language and learning how to program the AOS3 system :)

LICENSE ETC...
PUBLIC DOMAIN :)

The author has made every effort to ensure that the use of the program is
safe, but he provides it in the "as is" form, not taking responsibility for
any damage resulting from the use, etc.....
P.S. It would be nice if the author receives an email from the user in case
of finding it useful :)
