Both SidesCatalyst Release is a Pascal-based program that will let you use your bootdisks that have been "Catalyzed" by the Catalyst hard disk menu program.When you place certain copy-protected programs onto a hard disk underCatalyst, it "fixes" the original boot disk so it can't be used again. This program returns use of that disk to you. Side One:  Catalyst Release for Catalyst 1.0 users. REVIEW  : A review of Catalyst Release. Side Two: Catalyst Release for Catalyst 2.1 users.

SIDE ONE ONLYByDavid OttaliniWAP /// SIG CO-Chairman        A3 REBOOT will let you reboot any program from .D1 with just thepress of the RETURN key.  The program can do this because its a specially prepared version of SELECTOR ///, the hardisk utility program sold by On Three.        Selector has a "hook" in it, so that when a program ends it doesn'ttake you to the "INSERT DISK AND PRESS CONTROL-RESET" message.  Instead,it brings you back to a menu, from which you can then select the nextapplication you desire.        This version will only allow you to reboot a disk from .D1.  Butit will give you an idea of what SELECTOR can do.  If you'd like more information about Selector and On Three's entire line of programs, youcan call them at 1-805-822-8580. Their address is 1174 Hickory Ave. inTehachapi, California. Zip is 93561        You are currently reading this file from side one of disk APPLE-3-WAP-UTL-38.  It also includes some additional articles about Selector and a database ofall articles pertaining to Selector /// (as compiled by the author usinghis THREEWORKS information disks).        Side Two contains A3 REBOOT/Selector ///.  Remember to replace our SOS.DRIVER file with yours so your system is configured properly.As always, your comments and suggestions are most welcome.                                                        May 8, 1992** May 1995 NOTE:If you like Selector /// -  you'll really want to try BOS3 - the new upgradeto SOS that includes a built-in program selector among many other features. Best of all for Selector users is that BOS3 uses the same pathname structure- one that you already know and have used.  For more information, contactthe WAP office. BOS3 is available from WAP for just $50.00. (all funds gointo a special Software Development Fund for the ///).

Side One          The Epson Screen Printer will work with any Epson or Epson-compatable printer (like the Panasonic series) and is designed to letthe user print text or graphics screens in several different modes.        The program was written by Rick Sidwell and originally marketedby Alpine Computing, Inc., the precursor to Sun Remarketing.  It has notbeen offered for sale for many years and thus we are happy to place it intothe Public Domain for anyone interested.

It isself-booting under Business Basic and includes a Demo program for you totry out on your printer.  Note that we have replaced the orginal SOS.DRIVERfile with one that will allow you to print from the Apple ///'s RS232(Serial) printer.  If you have a parallel printer, there is an Epson driverin the SOS.DRIVER file you can make Active using the System Configuration Program of System Utilities (or simply replace the SOS.DRIVER file with one you know works with your Epson or Epson-compatable printer.

Note, however,  that you need to be VERY careful when changing filetypes, since you can really make mash out of a file in moving it from onetype to another (For example - you can't change a Basic file to ASCII andexpect Applewriter to read it.) Make a copy and do the conversion on it justto be safe.  And as noted above, since the demise of the ///, Apple IIdevelopers have, on occasion, taken a /// filetype as their own, which couldcause some problems if you're working with Apple II files.
