Another commercial program to hit the shareware scene.
This program was only available in the States and so may not be familiar
but for those who like to use their Atari Classic seriously it is a real
cracker. Screens is an excellent utility that could totally transform
the look of your Atari. What is does, basically, is to install a handler
that allows you to set up a number of screens, or windows, that can be
used to hold graphics or text with mixed fonts. The basic, and boring,
Graphics 0 screen is gone forever! Screens lets you choose any
rectangular area of the screen for display and gives input and output
from that area without affecting the remainder of the screen. The
applications are restricted only by your imagination but there is an
excellent demo on the disk to show you just what can be achieved.
Screens itself is a handler which installs additional commands much in
the same way as Turbo Basic, so you need to be familiar with programming
techniques to use it but, once the commands are learned, the
possibilities are enormous. A very extensive manual is supplied so that
everything you need is here. If you have programming experience, and
especially if you enjoy the extra power that programs like Turbo Basic
give you, then you ought to give Screens a trial run. You could end up
using it all the time.
