TITLE

         MultiTool II

VERSION

         V2.1

AUTHOR

DESCRIPTION
           
         MTool provides all standard features of a directory utility:
         You can use it to copy, move and delete files, analyze a file
         type and perform an action on it (i.e. show pictures or ani-
         mations, play mods, edit texts...).

         MTool handles LHA-archives like ordinary directories. You can
         doubleclick the name of a LHA-archive and its contents will
         be displayed in the filelist. Files can be deleted or copied
         to and from the archive.

         The layout of MTool resembles the good old DiskMaster (V1.4).

         MTool has been developed using the look and feel of OS2.04
         and WB2.1. It works with WB2.0 (not localized, no screen mode
         requester), some features are added with OS3.0; KS1.3 is not
         supported any more. It can be run on an own screen, a public
         screen or on the Workbench (resizable, position and size can
         be configured).

         Docs and/or catalogs are included in English, German, Swedish,
         French, Norwegian, Danish, Italian, Finnish, Dutch and
         Slovakian.

NEW FEATURES

         V2.1:
         - Optional action buttons at bottom of window
         - Directory caching
         - AppIcon
         - Number of selected bytes is displayed immediately
         - Copy/Move as
         - File notes are displayed in file lists
         ...and many more.

DISTRIBUTABILITY

         MTool is shareware. It is freely distributable, as long as
         you distribute all files! Feel free to include it in public
         domain collections (i.e. fishdisks).
