                             Program-Packer V1.6d

        Attention: This Program must only be distributed together with
                   all its documentation.

  1. Features:

  This Packer is  able  to  compress  executable  programs, and automatically
  unpack them  into  memory  when  the  program  is  run.   A  packed Program
  therefore operates just like an unpacked one.

  Packer and Unpacker have been specially optimised for speed.  The unpacking
  operation takes place at about  100KB  per  Second,  and  this speed can be
  maintained regardless of code length in the Archive.

  The Packer generates programs which are  compatible  with LHarc, and can be
  used with all versions of  LHarc.  From  LHarc  Version LZH11304 the packed
  program can once again be  unpacked.  (Theoretically  this is possible with
  previous versions, in practice however you usually experience errors).

  2. Compressing Programs:

  After clicking on  [Compress]  a  File-Selector-Box  appears.  Use  this to
  select the program to be  packed.   If  you  alsao click on [Fastload], the
  Fastload-Bit will be set in the packed program.

  After packing is complete, another  File-Selector-Box  allows you to supply
  the output Filename for your packed program.

  You will also be told how  much  of  a  reduction  in file size the packing
  process has achieved.

  3. Unpacking:

  After clicking on  [Uncompress]  two  File-Selector-Boxes  appear.   In the
  first you should give the name of  the  program  you wish to unpack, in the
  second, the name for the unpacked program.

  There are no intervening messages because  the unpacking process is so fast
  there would be no  time  to  read  them  before  the next File-Selector-Box

  4. Shareware:

  You may copy PFXPAK as often as  you  like, provided you keep all the files
  together. Including all document files.
