DESCRIPTION

     ARCHandler is a filesystem that allows you to use
     lha-archives as if they where directories. The files in
     the archives can be used like normal files: you can
     read, view and/or execute them.

NEW FEATURES

     Major changes since release 2.0:
     -When an extracted file is closed it isn't immediatly
      deleted. When the same file is opened again in a short
      time, the file doesn't have to be reextracted.
     -You can now use devices and assigns in the root
      directory.
     -Sometimes an archive whose contents wasn't yet
      completely parsed was already flushed. This generated
      several Enforcer hits.
     -ARCHandler could lock up when you used it to access
      archives in archives.
     -French and German translations.

     Check the included documentation for a complete list of
     changes.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

     ARCHandler needs Kickstart/Workbench 2.04 or newer and
     1Meg of memory. Altough ARCHandler works with
     floppydisks, a harddisk is recommended.

     To extract files from archives, ARCHandler uses the
     'LhA' command (Copyright (c) Stefan Boberg), both the
     evaluation and registered version should work.
