RTF stands for Rich Text Format.
It basically is a text file with some added embedded comands for fonts, bold underline etc.
It can be easily read by any text editor, and the additional commands can be stripped out !
After due consideration, Phil Burk and Mike Haas decided this was the easiest format for most people to use. It was released without modifications.
I decided, quite early on, that the paragraphs and layout were hard on the eye, and not conducive to learning by budding programmers.
I therefore changed the layout, predominently on spacing to make things look clearer and more easily read, and therfore understood.
I'm sure some people won't like 'my' version !
But they are welcome to adjust the manual themselves to their own style.
A lot of work is still being done on the manual, mainly :-
HTML for on-line Available here
HTML for off-line reading available in Lha or Zip or Tgz
Text file with attached Graphics
WordsWorth V 1.0 to V 3.0 in Lha available as tgz and zip
WordsWorth V 3.1 to V 7.1 in Lha available as tgz and zip
Text file in Lha available as tgz and zip
Other format's are under consideration/review and more announcements
will follow shortly
These will arrive during the next 3-weeks ie. by February 1st 1999 ! (Hopefully !!! )
If you find any mistakes in the manual, please report
