Hello everybody:

This is the Beta Version of ASCII Editor 4.1 and I have posted it because I need
your help. The program is becoming more and more complex and I couldn't test
everything alone. I hope you help me with that and send me your bug reports and
suggestions.

The most relevant new feature (except from the design) are the color functions.
Normally the name ASCIIEditor isn't correct any longer. At the old version
somebody has told me that it is more a drawing program than a editor and this
is true. You could call it "TextPainter" or something like this...
Nevertheless the color functions are only a special. At the moment the many edit
functions didn't work with colors (no bug). It is recommended to make a complete
ASCII picture before using the color tools.

Please have a special look on these things:

- German (error) message (text of the message and the used function)
- A function didn't work (I need although the name of the function you have used
                          before)
- Wrong display of the prog. (your win. display settings)

You can found a form in this directory, which you can send me.

Special interests:
------------------

HTML:
All HTML functions are new and I would be interested in talking with people who
create HTML art. Send me your suggestions (painting functions, save options,
...).

Programming:
May be somebody of you is a programmer and interested in helping me. You could
send me tips are program parts in Delphi, Turbo Pascal or Assembler (C++ and
BASIC please only with detailed info's - couldn't implement them direct).
I would fell in Heaven if someone has written a ASCII art tool which he wants
to see implemented in ASCIIEditor.

Helpfile:
It's really hard for me to write this help. My English isn't good and if you want
to help me with this, I would love you for this until the end of my life :-)


Thanks for downloading and testing this program. MARC
