Print.me File for Late Documentation

A method is described to avoid the problem that exists when the READ.ME file for late documentation has grown too long to be presented to the user upon the first time the user runs a program.

In accordance with the new method, the information for documentation that is submitted after the date for publications is included in a PRINT.ME file that can be printed by the user. Such information is then deleted from the original READ.ME file and only the outline, or Table of Contents, remains in the READ.ME file.

In this way, the user is informed of the further information that exists in the PRINT.ME file on the diskette, but interrupting the immediate task of running the diskette for the first time is not prolonged.
