DIANA is an interactive MS-Windows software management system for editing
DELTA data and directives files and running DELTA programs. It is available
by gopher or anonymous ftp from the following Internet hosts.

     Host                   Directories
     --------------------   ----------------------------   /pub/delta/diana   /delta/diana

The distribution package consists of a text file Dianaw.1st, containing this
information about downloading the programs, and a self-expanding file
dianaw 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.)

Copy the file DIANAW at .EXE into the directory C:\DELTA on your MS-DOS computer,
and expand it by entering DIANAW at . Start the program by double-clicking on the
DIANA for Windows icon from your DELTA Program Group. The Windows Write file
DIANAW.WRI contains details of installation and operation.

The program gives an error message if the user tries to load a file larger
than 48Kb into the editor (the previous version did not give any warning
either and since the built-in editor truncates files this could result in
serious data loss). Several minor corrections were also made in the help file.

If you have any suggestions or problems with the software please contact me.
DIANA for Windows is freeware - it may be used, copied, and distributed freely,
provided that no price or fee is charged for it.
