TITLE

VERSION

2.1 (major update)

DESCRIPTION

This system shared library decodes the manufacturer and product ID of
hardware expansions, as you can get them from the system's
expansion.library.  It returns the full name (if expname knows the IDs) or
a simple number.

Since V2.0, this library returns information about the Amiga system it runs
on, too, as e.g.  main processor, FPU, MMU, OS version, RAM size or Graphic
OS (CyberGraphX, ProBench, EGS, ...).

With your help, I hope to get as much full names as possible.  So please
send the name, manufacturer ID and product ID of all your expansions to:
"rkoerber@tfh.dssd.sub.org".  You can get the IDs by using ShowConfig or
the included tool ListExp.  Thank you!
