Ok...one more thing on software, then I'll shut up for a while...
While surfing the Net today, I happened to stumble on still another
shareware scripting program for IBM-PC's. While the one I previously
found (AVScripter) seems to specialize in the two-column New York
format, this one (ScreenWright) appears to produce the standard
Hollywood film-TV screenplay format.
Again, its usefulness is unknown...but it's there, if you want to try
This one is in the HENSA micros software archive at Lancaster
To get the file:
1. FTP to micros.hensa.ac.uk.
2. Enter HENSA as both username and password.
3. The file with the program is e021scr.boo. You can find it by
following the path micros/ibmpc/dos/e/eo21.
4. You see from above that the file is in BOO format. (I never saw
this one before.) You'll also need to get the extraction tool, a
file called deboo.exe. To find this file, follow the path
5. To extract the file, you type in deboo e021scr.boo. This process
takes a minute or so. You will then have a file in the ARC format,
which is then unpacked like any ARC file.
6. Then, finally, you have the ScreenWright program.
Let me know if this one is any good.
