    Added semi-style-guide compliant menu shortcut keys.
    Help menu and help screens now compatible with MagicMenu.
    Added wildcard pattern matching to command line parser.
    Added NODETACH command line switch to suppress detaching.
    No longer distributing 68030 binaries - available from author.

What it needs:
    o Kickstart V37 / AmigaDOS V2.04, or better.
    o ReqTools library by Nico Francois, V38 or better.

What it does:
    o Scrolls at 4 speeds, from a smooth 1 pixel at a time, to a fast 8.
    o Hex dump mode.
    o Junk filter in hex mode.
    o Uses the ReqTools library for attractive requesters.
    o Can read PowerPacked and XPK'd files.
    o Can mark blocks of text and write them to a file, device,
      clipboard, or into the input stream of another application.
    o Fast searching in both hex and text modes.
    o Wildcard text searches, with case-sensitive option.
    o Searches in hex mode for hex, dec, and ASCII bytes.
    o Installs as a commodity.
    o Can go to sleep and pop up with a hotkey.
    o Comprehensive mouse and keyboard controls.
    o Can be launched from shell or WB.
    o Detaches from shell (optional).
    o Wildcard pattern matching of files from command line.
    o On-line help screens.
    o AmigaGuide format documentation.
    o Keeps a file list for quickly moving between files.
    o Can launch your editor with the current file.
    o Supports five bookmarks.
    o Has an adjustable palette.
    o Has adjustable tab spacing.
    o Choice of any 8 by 8 monospace font.
    o It is pure and hence may be made resident.
    o Hand-crafted with loving care in 100% assembly language.

What it doesn't:
    o It doesn't interpret ANSI sequences for changing colours
      and text attributes like bold and underline.
    o It will only run on its own custom screen, which cannot be
      made public.
    o The screen can only be 640*256 (PAL) or 640*200 (NTSC) in
      2 or 4 colours.
    o It only supports 8x8 monospace fonts.
