This little tool allows you to easily write a Aminet Readme file and also
upload it to the aminet server!

I often forgot which types were possible and what they were used for and the
length limitation of the Short-field etc so I needed a tool to help me
reminding;)

Its written with Hollywood v8.0 (http://www.hollywood-mal.com/) and compiled
as a so called "applet".
I decided to distribute only the applet so it can be executed on all platforms
which supports the RapaGUI plugin:
   Windows, Linux (GTK), AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS and AROS!

You need the Hollywood Player to run it!
Get it here : http://www.hollywood-mal.com/download/HWPlayer_Amiga.lha

Native executable versions can be downloaded from my website:

If you find bugs or if you have suggestions send me an eMail!

History:
========
  04-Jan-2020, v1.5
    - show the current cursor position of the description field in the statusbar
    - show a warning if the cursor pos exceeds 78 chars, because this is the
      recommended width for Aminet descriptions
      [suggested by Bernd Assenmacher]

  09-Sep-2018, V1.4
    - Changed encoding to #ENCODING_ISO8859_1, because Aminet doesn't
      supports UTF8!?
    - The check for the keywords is now done case insentive

  29-Aug-2018, V1.3
    - If you load a readme with the same Type like the current, the SubType
      wasn't correct

  01-Mai-2018, V1.2
    - added support to load a readme at startup with "-f", "-r" or "-readme" 

  28-Apr-2018, V1.1
    - I forgot to replace my eMail with the Uploader-eMail as password for the
      upload;)
    - ASCII was used as transfermode for both the archive and the readme,
      it worked anyway;) but now ASCII is used the readme and BINARY for the
      archive
    - on Upload, you will be first asked for readme then the archive
    - added a simple About-Requester

  27-Apr-2018, V1.0: first release
