Hi Folks,

I've finally finished setting up my Ultra to my satisfaction. Sooooo,
I thought I'd tell youse about some useful, small, programs that seem especially
suited to the UltraLite.

SCHEDULE.COM, JOURNAL.COM:
PCMAG programs that have calendars, alarm clocks, expense journal,
etc.

DGTERM.COM:
Tiny background TSR that does VT102 emulation & file transfers.

CARDFILE.COM:
PCMAG program for names & address & phone numbers.

FILEC:
Does filename completion.

CED:
Command line editing.

SWAPKEY:
Swaps CapsLock & Ctrl keys.

KERMIT:
V2.32a (older) cause its smaller & I don't need all the fancy
terminal emulation. PKlited its 56192 bytes.

CONFIG.EXE:
Easy way to have multiple config.sys & autoexec.bat files (wasteful
on HD).

XEQ:
A LOT of the .COM files are in TWO XEQ libraries. VERY USEFUL.

EMACS:
MicroEmacs (PKlited it's 57903 bytes).

LESS:
Some version of LESS.

MOVE.COM:
PCMAG utility that does mv properly, especially with a CED
aliases.

UNERA13.COM
PCMAG Utility that unerases files (small). Extremely necessary
if you're prone (as I am) to file deletion.

MONO.COM:
PCMAG TSR that fixes difficult colors (such as that used in
DGTERM). Unfortunately, interacts badly with DGTERM, so if
you use it to see something in DGTERM, you gotta remember to
toggle it off.

CTYPE.COM:
I often "lose" my cursor when its an "_" in emacs, this allows
you to set it to any shape.

Plus a couple more things. Note that all the PCMAG utilities are REAL small
(especially when PKlited), and I put them in an XEQ library.

Also note that all these programs are available at SIMTEL.

Anyways, I just wanted to indicate that I'm pleased with my UltraLite and
how I use it...

Cheers, Sy.
