DESCRIPTION


            AORM is an AmigaGuide based online help system for Amiga
        computers and Video Toaster Workstations. Using a hypertext
        point and click interface, users have access to over 1,200,000
        bytes of information, contained in over 830 AmigaGuide pages.
                Using built in virtual memory, modules may be loaded
        in as needed, often occupying only 150k of memory. Modules
        may be updated as new features are added. Free maintenance
        updates are provided to registered users.
