===============================

So what's on these disks?  Since this contains some of the best of the
AMUC Express (AMIGA ONLY) BBS you can expect to find a huge number
of IFF and JPEG pictures, animations sounds, mods, 3D objects,
clipart, fonts (bitmap and structured), text files, programs and
demos from all over the world.  The files are primarily stored as
LZH, LHA or DMS files.

There are FILES.BBS and 00_INDEX.TXT files in all the directories,
as well as long descriptions of most files stored in a separate
description file tree.

The directory names are a maximum of 8 characters with 3 character
extensions, so it is usable on most PC based systems (there are file
names that are longer than 8+3 characters, so how these will appear on
your PC system will depend on the CDROM driver you have). The disk is
an ISO9660 format disk.

The AMUC2/3 set also includes two searching utilities along with
the databases for AMUC1, AMUC2 and AMUC3.  These allow you to search
for files by name (including with AmigaDOS wildcards) and by content.
The contents of all the files have been scanned and the keywords
from them have been placed into a large database for fast approximate
searches.

AMUC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the support of Amiga
Users and the promotion of the Amiga computer.  Purchasers of either
the AMUC1 CDROM or the AMUC2/3 set are eligable for a $10.00 discount
on an AMUC mail-out membership.
