DESCRIPTION

        AlertPatch replaces the system exec.library/Alert() with
        two custom routines to give the user a choice of how the
        alert is to be displayed, either as an intuition window or
        a system alert with additional information.

FEATURES

        1. Alerts now displayable as windows. With options to
           Continue, Suspend or Reboot for all alert types.

        2. Displays description of alert and name of the offending
           task.

        3. Dumps contents of CPU data and address registers and
           displays a text representation.

        4. Can list or get information on alert numbers from cli or
           listview.

        5. Sound support through a sound daemon such as MSD or UPD.
