READ -- Reading an Auto Book

To get started, you should edit the file ``ADI.CFG'' on the Auto Book disc and change the ``TERM'' statement to specify your terminal type. The terminal type specified must be one listed in a ``*'' line in the file ``WINDOW.TRM'' on the disc. This is exactly like the CP/M Window configuration, and you may use the notes for that product to aid in configuring new terminals.

Put the Auto Book disc in Drive 1. Call the read utility with the command:


When you are asked for a document name, answer:


If you're about to ask me about the plus signs, it's because the terminal definition defaults to plus signs for ``flagged'' lines. They're reverse video on my terminal. If you have a special display mode, make the entries in WINDOW.TRM to use it on your terminal.
