A new version of TAXASOFT DELTA editor for MS-DOS is available on Internet.
This editor (ddata.exe) is an interface to your DELTA files. Not a normal
text editor, but a real DELTA Data Entry/Maintenance program, that is easy to
use. A three dimentional database like interface which makes it easy to setup
and maintain your DELTA files: ITEMS, SPECS and CHARS.

Testers are invited to contact me for additional information.

TAXASOFT is an MS-DOS package for editing DELTA data files and running DELTA
programs. It is possible to delete, insert or move around characters, items,
and states, without having to worry about the consistency of the DELTA files.

TAXASOFT is available by gopher or anonymous ftp from the following Internet

     Host                   Directory
     --------------------   ----------------------------   /pub/delta/taxasoft   /delta/taxasoft

The distribution package consists of text file Download.1st, containing this
information about downloading the programs, and a self-expanding file
taxasof at .exe, containing the programs and documentation. All the files must be
transmitted in binary mode, set by the ftp command `binary'. (Failure to do so
will result in the error message `HeaderC Error' when the .exe files are run.)

Place the file TAXASOF at .EXE in the directory C:\TAXASOFT on your MS-DOS
computer, and expand it by entering TAXASOF at . Start the software by typing
DDMENU at the DOS-prompt.

If you have any problems with the software please contact me. All software is
ShareWare. A licensed version can be purchased using the file order.frm and
sending it by Email to the address above.
