    Shareware
    ------------
    VirusZ is no longer Freeware, but  Shareware. This means you are  still
    allowed to copy the software freely, but  you have to pay a fee to  the
    author if you use VirusZ regularly. Not paying your fee is both immoral
    and illegal. If you  already have registered  for any former  releases,
    paying the fee  again is optional.  Suggested donation is  DM 10 or  an
    equivalent amount  in any  other currency.  Anything else  will not  be
    accepted. By now,  I had more  expense than profit  by sending all  you
    folks your disks back etc.  If you want me  to continue my work,  don't
    try to cheat me.  Submissions with new material  (viruses/crunchers) are
    welcome. If you want your disks back, either enclose enough money for
    postage or German stamps. If you  send  me   useful  stuff,   you   will 
    additionally receive  the   latest  update  of VirusZ  on   your   disk.                                                         

                    
    VirusZ Philosophy
    --------------------
    VirusZ is another try to  make the perfect viruskiller. Although  there
    are already hundreds of killers, none had to offer the, in my  opinion,
    most important features. These  are to be short,  fast and not to  keep
    the user from working by opening a big screen with hundreds of  gadgets
    or locking the drives. If you like that type of killer, forget VirusZ.

    Why Use VirusZ?
    ------------------
    VirusZ has been  tested on  Kickstart 1.2/1.3, OS  2.0 and  OS 3.0  and
    worked just fine.  It offers several  OS 2.0 features  even under  Kick
    1.2/1.3 like gadget activation via  keyboard. All windows use the  full
    screen size, have a built-in Topaz 8 font to prevent any trouble, bring
    themselves to the front when started and set up a wait pointer for  the
    other windows. Windows always support the screen font (up to size 124!)
    in the menu/title bar. VirusZ recognizes over 200 bootblock viruses and
    the filechecker not  only detects  over 95  file viruses,  but it  also
    offers you the unbelieveable feature of decrunching files. The boot lab
    offers all  important bootblock  operations on  one screen.  The  whole
    software is written 100% in assembly language for lightning speed.  The
    memory checker  removes all  known viruses  from memory  without  'Guru
    Meditation' and checks memory for viruses regularly. VirusZ has easy to
    use intuitionized  menus  including  keycuts  for  both  beginners  and
    experienced users. It performs a self-test on every startup to  prevent
    link virus infection. VirusZ works in the background and uses less than
    0.5% of your processing time (use Xoper to verify). Last but not least,
    VirusZ is regularly  updated and  hence offers  you perfect  protection
    against the latest viruses. Starting with 3.00, you have the ability to
    learn your own bootblocks via the VirusZ Brain Editor VZBE.

INTRODUCTION
------------
        
        This program was originally written due to the lack of such a 
        program  on the Amiga.  Since that time the response has been
        terrific.  SysInfo is now even more powerful and has become
        a standard on the Amiga.
        
        I have placed this program on Shareware so that it can be
        used by everyone.  All code, graphics and documents remain
        copyright Nic Wilson Software.
        
        If you like this program, then help me to help you more by
        sending a donation.

                      *********************************            
                      IMPORTANT FOR KICKSTART 1.2 - 1.3
                      *********************************
                      
        Amigas that have a maths co-processor using kickstart 1.3 or 
        earlier, MUST use SetPatch 1.34 or later otherwise this program
        will crash.  This program uses 68881 & 68882 instructions and a 
        bug in the kernal causes a guru.  SetPatch patches this bug.  
        This is not required for Kickstart V2.04 or greater.
        
        Sysinfo is an Amiga Sytem Information program.  It interrogates
        the Amiga and determines types of hardware, software, modes,
        speed etc.  Users have found it very useful for determining
        correct operation of an Amiga before purchase and that the
        unit actually contains hardware that they are paying for, without
        having to open it up.  It is under constant revision, and these
        revisions are available from myself at any time.  My goal is to
        make SysInfo the most informative and accurate information program
        on the Amiga.  To do this I need your feedback and suggestions. 
        
        This program is tested with the program 'Enforcer'.
        
        Please be patient if you are running SysInfo on a standard
        Amiga as it will take a while to perform its tests.  SysInfo
        really interrogates your system and has to perform many timing
        loops to test ram speed, type etc.  Some other programs sacrifice
        accuracy by speeding the tests up, SysInfo takes time but does
        an intensive test.  At times it also disables multitasking and may
        blank the mouse pointer.  It will return to multitasking when
        finished and the mouse pointer will return.
        
        TIMINGS FROM ONE VERSION OF SYSINFO TO THE NEXT
        -----------------------------------------------
        
        If you are wondering how come SysInfo may give different results
        from one version to the next, this is because it is under 
        constant revision and accuracy is improved with each version as
        YOU THE USER gives me feedback on varying models and 
        configurations.  This feedback is very important, as it allows
        SysInfo to grow into the most powerful and accurate System
        information program and an invaluable tool for the Amiga.


SysInfo HISTORY (HISTORY PRIOR TO V3.10 HAS BEEN DELETED)
---------------
3.22    Fixed a MAJOR bug in the display info.  The bug would 
	occur if for example the system was booted without a 
	startup-sequence.  This caused the program to totally 
	hang or crash. 

	Added a new function in the BOARDS section as many
	users have asked for.  If SysInfo does not recognise
	a board by name, SysInfo will look in an external
	ascii file that you create, and try to find a match
	for each unknown card.  Please see the README file for 
	specific info on creating this file.

	Added the ability to split the 68020 and 68EC020 CPU's.
	So who said it couldn't be done eh?.  Tests so far
	seem to indicate the routine works fine.
	
	Replaced the "DISABLED" and "ENABLED" strings for the 
	MMU display with "NOT IN USE" AND "IN USE" respectively
	as some users seems to think that disabled, meant 
	permanently disabled or a less than working version.
	Remember though that just because SysInfo states that
	you may have one, does not necessarily meant it is
	in a fully working state, some 68EC030's have an less
	than operational MMU that will partially work and
	SysInfo sees this as a working MMU.
	
	Added the ability to recognise kickstart that have
	been "ReKicked" and kickstarts larger than 512k.  This
	information if found will be displayed in the scroll
	area beside the kickstart version.

3.21    There was an error in the string for 25Mhz Amigas and
	this was forcing it to show as "25000".  This has now
	been corrected and shows correctly as "25.00" 

3.20    Even though the -p Print routine was working fine the
	internal print gadget routine was broken.  I have fixed
	this and now it prints ok.

3.19    Thanks to a good friend of mine, Andy Clay, a blatant
	bug has been fixed that has been in SysInfo since
	V3.00.  The priority display in the Task and Port lists
	was shown as values between 0 and 255 instead of -128
	to +127.  This has been corrected and it now shows the
	correct value.  Strange how it took this long for someone
	to notice such an obvious error.  Thanks Andy.
	
	The Total Size memory field inside the Memory function
	was inaccurate and losing half a meg on some setups, this
	has been corrected.

3.18    Corrected a problem for some IDE drives in the A4000.
	It seems that some brands of IDE drives do not like
	reads of 128K or greater at once and some users have 
	not set their "MAXTRANSFER" value to $FFFF.  The SPEED function
	of SysInfo tried to use a 128K read, so I have changed
	this to 64K.  It fixes the problem for a Quantum IDE LP52
	drive and I expect it should fix all others.

3.17    Corrected an error in the drives function.  It always
	used a read size of TD_SECTOR in order to fetch the 
	first block of the boot sector.  CD-ROM drives with 2048
	bytes per sector did not like this.  I have changed the
	read size to the id_BytesPerSector of the particular device
        being read.

3.16    Fixed a bug in the dhrystones printing routine, any
	subsequent printing of the number could be wrong if
	it was much smaller (eg. caches off) because the 
	number was not erased first, and part of the old
	number was left behind.

3.15    Fixed the "lies" of CLOCK function, it should now 
	correctly report if you have a Commodore compatible
	hardware clock or not.  Older versions lied on the
	A1200 and A600.

                             Move 2.1
                             --------
Written by Asher Feldman

Note: Move requires the Copy, Rename, and Delete commands in your c
directory.

Move 2.1 requires kickstart 2.04 or higher.  If you have not yet upgraded, 
you should use Move 1.1. (Or better yet, upgrade! :-)

Changes since 2.0a
------------------
2.0a contained a major bug, which stoped you from closing your shell
after using move.  That, and all known bugs have now been fixed.

Thanks to everyone who mailed in bug reports on Move 2.0a! :-)

What is it?
-----------
Move is a simple Un*x like "move" command.  It allows you to move files 
to and from any device or directory.  It performs the same function as the 
Move command on a directory utility, but from the CLI or Shell.  It can 
also be used as a Rename command.  Move supports true (rename style) moves
when moving files on the same device, while still allowing you to move files
across volumes.

Move will also allow you to move file links, and supports all standard 2.x
wildcards.
