Doshelp, Help, and xView
  ■ XVIEW.EXE is the name of the Flambeaux Software hypertext viewer.  In
    previous versions, the viewer was named HELP.EXE and the version that
    ships with Flambeaux's ◄DOS Help!► is named DOSHELP.EXE.

TECH Help! files
  ■ The program file is named XVIEW.EXE.  This is the generic name of
    Flambeaux's hypertext viewer (as shipped with ◄xText►, the hypertext
    development system.

  ■ The hypertext database is named TECH60.H!.  xView will look for this
    file in the following locations:
    • The directory named in XVIEW /M=file (if used).
    • The directory named in an e-var XVIEWPATH=yourDir (if any).
    • The directory in which XVIEW.EXE is stored.
    • The current default directory.

TECH Help! configuration file
  ■ When you set configuration options in the menu (and then save the
    setup) or whenever you place a bookmark, xView saves information into
    a standard text file, named XVIEW.INI.

  ■ xView will look for that file in the following places:
    • The directory named in an e-var XVIEWINIT=yourDir (if any).
    • The directory in which XVIEW.EXE is stored.

  ■ The XVIEWINIT variable is handy for network installations.  It lets
    each individual user have a personal copy of configuration settings.
    Contact Flambeaux Software for information on network and site

  ■ XVIEW.INI contains some options that are not available through menu
    commands, including printer options.  See Modifying XVIEW.INI.

TSR Mode
  ■ The DOS 5.0+ Loadhigh command will usually allocate about 50K of upper
    memory and about 90K of conventional memory.  On most systems, xView is
    too large to fit entirely in upper memory.

  ■ The /IE, /IX, and /IDd force the TSR-mode xView to minimize its use of
    conventional memory.  However, there are several potential problems
    that can occur in these modes.  If you find that popping up xView
    causes a lockup or other problems, switch to /IC.

    Note: It is easy to remove xView from RAM.  If you expect to need it
          temporarily, say, while editing program files, use...
