Various Linking

Batch Files

for use with

The Four Files

of the

Apocalypse

A lot of the DIRECTORY and APPLICATION info in these batch 
files will not be applicable to your system.  Make any 
necessary changes.  All these are here for are to show how a 
ring menuing system is constructed.  Ring menus are not the 
best way to do things but the 17 line menu is easy to 
maintain once you get used to it, but the mode menu is 
considered passe now.  i still use it cause it's simple.

For the ultimate in menuing systems see one of the best
books ever written on BASIC

BASIC PROGRAMMING INSIDE & OUT by H. J. Bomanns
It is an ABACUS Developer's Series Book (a Data Becker Book)
ISBN 1-55755-084-0
  er... it is written by a professional for professionals so 
naturally i never understood too much of it or used any of 
its code.  but i will, i promise.  some day...  maybe...
 (good luck in finding one)
