DESCRIPTION

     DFA is the definitive address database tool. It supplies a very
     nice GUI, a powerful Arexx port, a flexible client server
     mechanism and much more. It is simply the ideal means to manage
     several or many addresses for the beginner as well as for the
     professional Amiga user.

     Feature hotlist:

     Arexx port, direct dialing of the stored phone numbers, font
     sensitive windows, "grouping" of addresses, email support,
     different layouts for printing, context sensitive online help,
     application icon/window/menu, fully directable by keyboard,
     separate preferences program, customizable address list
     format,...

     Native languages are supported with Workbench 2.1 (and
     above) installed.

     This is version 2.5, a minor update to version 2.25.

     DFA is an SASG product! Shareware, binary only.

NEW FEATURES (since v2.25)

     - Custom screen support

     - Support of local preferences files

     - Alternative hires layout for several windows (may be toggled)

     - New "(Un)set groups" window

     - New network mode; internal handling rewritten completely

     - New auto lock mechanism (for network mode)

     - Display sort: Sorts the displayed addresses temporarily

     - Sorting addresses should be even faster now!

     - You may move through the address list while using the Edit
       window.

     - Fine tuning for several parts of DFA to improve the usability
       even further (see History for details)

     - New Arexx commands:
       SAVEPREFS, LOADPREFS, GETPREFS, SETPREFS, EDITTEMPLATE,
       GETTEMPLATE

     - Improved Arexx commands:
       CHANGEGROUPS, SEARCH

     - In connection to the New-Window of the DFAEditor, you may
       configure a preprocess and a postprocess (Arexx) script, which
       may modify the new item before/after you've entered the new
       address

     - Additional menu for Arexx scripts (DFAEditor)

     - 10 aditional arexx scripts can be bound to shifted function
       keys

     - Optimized window refreshing

     - Several bug fixes (see History for details)

     - Recompiled with SAS/C v6.55.

     (re)distributable, but noone is allowed to sell the program
     for more money than to cover just the costs of copying.
