This package was developed for hands-on demonstrations of the interactive
identification and information retrieval program Intkey, at the open days of
the CSIRO Division of Entomology. It works only for the particular set of 32
butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) used in the demonstrations, and should
not be applied to general identification of butterflies or moths. It can be
used by children aged 4 and older, but the youngest children, especially
those who cannot read, will need help to get started.

Intkey requires MS-Windows V3.1 or later. It will also run under SoftWindows
on a Macintosh.

It is not necessary to register Intkey for use with the Lepidoptera data.

Intkey and the data are available via anonymous ftp from
   ftp.keil.ukans.edu           (directory: /pub/delta)
and via WWW from
All files must be transmitted in binary mode (set by the ftp command

Intkey is in the subdirectory msdos, in the self-expanding archive file
deltaw at .exe. Installation instructions are in the text file Intkey.1st. The
archive file also contains text files files DELTA.USE (conditions of use)
and DELTA.REG (registration and order form).

The Lepidoptera data are in the subdirectory `lep', in the self-expanding
archive file lep at .exe. Installation instructions are in the file Lep.1st.
The illustrations are in the subdirectory `lep/images'; their total size is
about 4MB.
