CardCat Opening Screen Abstract-- CARDCAT.EXE is a compiled BASIC program that manages references in a computerized card catalog (database). CARDCAT.EXE and companion files operate from the DOS command line on IBM-compatible personal computers. The program system can add, edit, or delete references, import text files of references, search for multiple text-strings in order to recall and list pertinent references, and export specified references in any journal style. More than one database can be maintained. Key words, journal styles, and journal abbreviations are maintained in permanent files, that can be updated. An on-line reference manual, as well as context-sensitive help screens are included. Optional features include color, sound, password, and alarm clock.

Future updates may be available for a minimal fee (free from internet). This program can be run from Windows 95/98 also as can any DOS program.
