DESCRIPTION

- Have you many files to donwload from different sites each time
  you login ?
- Have you filled with post-it or other notes your monitor frame ?
- Do you forget all those dotted network names ?
- Do you use Term for interactive dial-out Internet connections ?
- Are you bored to type long commands ?
- Have you filled all the pfkeys definitions ?
- Want to use ARCHIE and get with some clicks of your mouse that
  particular file ?

Term + IFR + TermComp is the answer to your problems (I hope :-) ).

IFR : this program allows you to enter a complete file spec
(eg: host+path+filename) while you are reading a message in an offline
reader or while reading the documentation of another program or an FTP
link in an HTML document printed in a magazine. Simply run the program
(from CLI !) with an optional public screen name:  Default is Workbench
screen.

IFR operates as a stand alone utility but its output can be used
from TermComp, my other utility that speeds up a little the download
procedures giving you a special GUI superimposed to the Term one. This
program drives Term using its ARexx msgport : if you use other
communication software, please send in the Arexx documentation so that I
can consider writing a version of TermComp for you program.

(Term is the wonderful terminal emulation program by Olaf Olsen Bartel)

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

These programs use the gadtools.library for their gadgets and ARexx
to control Term.  They have been tested under OS 2.1 , 3.0 and 3.1 and
should run without problems on ANY Amiga with those OS versions.

IFR works as a stand alone program but its output can be fully used only by
TermComp. TermComp works only with Term installed.

WHAT I THINK ABOUT SHAREWARE

I released one program (M2I) some time ago in the shareware concept and
received $ 0.00 , Lire 0 , DM 0.00 and so on...
This is my second trial.... probably the first program was not useful or
user friendly (M2I was a quick and dirty solution to my need of
obtaining Imagine object files about molecules).

To encourage the shareware concept, these programs have been compiled
without the important Save functions.
