DESCRIPTION

MagicCX is the definite commodity/system enhancer for any Amiga running OS
2.x or better.  It is a very powerful and flexible system.  MagicCX is a
multifunctional commodity/tool collection which is somehow unique as it
does not contain all the functions offered, but has the main
functions/features built into external modules, so that users may configure
MagicCX to their needs.  MagicCX is the successor of KCommodity, which was
a multifunctional commodity/tool, too.  The program offers a lot more
functions than KCommodity.  All of the functions known from KCommodity were
put into MagicCX and were enhanced, of course.

Some of the main features the program offers are: CycleToMenu, PhoneBill
(Modem conntect monitoring with cost calculation), Screen/Window Grabber,
AnalogClock, Calendar, Window manipulation functions of all sort (like
cycling, activating, hunting for windows), Screen Blanker with
Blanker/Dimmer and several external blanker modules, Mouse blanker, Screen
Selector type facilities, ToolAlias, ARexx control, Titlebar clock,
Function keys, Exploding Windows, Keystroke clicker, WBGauge, system wide
String gadget enhancements, and much, much more.
