    See the file "michman.htm" in the docs subdirectory "docs".
    It contains all the information you need.

    Yep,

    RTFM-method is allways a recommended method. Sadly, often ignored by impatient yougsters.

    (RTFM = Read The F...ing Manual)

    TFMIU says the youngster. Not true though, just takes a bit of time and youngsters are impatient.

    (TFMIU = The F...ing Manual Is Unreadable)
    Old computer jargon :)

    Mikey All questions are welcome but sometimes we don't read the manual properly or we don't read it at all, Michlet has all the info you need to use it you just need to read it, also there is a tutorial on spanish on how to use michlet, maybe not much of help (becouse is in spanish) but is very well done and IMO easy to follow.

    cheers

    CGN, I'm OK with the manual though I must admit that I didn't understand enough the first time I read it and had to read it several times. That is as it should be because the reason for that was that I was not 100% familiar with the subject :)

    The manual is fine
    (could be more comprehensive, but I have only used the free version of the programme so I shouldn't say that either:) )

    There is only a free version. I gave up trying to charge for the code a couple of years ago because I couldn't find a satisfactory price. $US100 is fine for some people, but several weeks salary for others. I tried using 3 hours salary as a basis, but then some people started posting me zloty and other funny money which was not worth going to the bank to exchange. (Donations are still gratefully accepted now that I have gone back to school and am only on a small scholarship).

    Have fun!
    Leo.
