What reviewers have said about BREEZE:

Breeze is bristling with features and must represent the ultimate in shareware. - PC Home Nov, 1993

I have never seen a budget-priced word processor with quite as many features as this. Altogether an excellent program with more features than you'll ever need and at a reasonable price. - Practical PC (Nov, 1993)

. . . the most extensive set of text editing tools available in one package. Breeze offers you everything you're likely to need for editing and manipulating text. - Jane Brown, PC Home Issue 4

Breeze is one of the most refreshing new programs I've come across in a while. Breeze is easy to use, lightning fast, and has some great features - word processor or text editor. - Geoff Long, Australian PC World

A mighty-mite text processor that combines ease-of-use with some outstanding features. - Stephen West, Australian PC User

If you want a word processor which you can operate straight 'out of the box', choose Breeze. If you want a program which has all the tools you need for writing, such as a spell-checker and style analyser, choose Breeze. If you like a colourful, good-looking screen with on-line help, choose Breeze. - Laurie Malone, Sixteen Bits

I guess the word that comes to mind when I see Breeze is 'clean'. Combine the clean look with a couple of unique features, and Breeze is easy to use and very handy for special jobs. - Chuck Botsford, Shareware Magazine

PC Home, in their November 1993 edition, found Breeze to be the best shareware word processor. Breeze was compared to the top 7 Shareware Word Processors including Word Fugue, PC Write, and Galaxy Pro Lite.

Winner: "Best Editing Software", PC Update Readers' Choice Awards, 1995.

BIGTEXT Electronic Books v3.3

- for DOS -

Short description: self-displaying illustrated books & manuals.

Long description:

Bigtext turns ordinary text files into self-contained, self- displaying executable files capable of displaying full colour illustrations in body of the text. This program is specifically designed to make self-displaying books, manuals, documents, and catalogues. The difference between Bigtext and similar programs is that it can handle genuinely BIG volumes of text (up to 700kb or more) and that it creates a single, neat and convenient executable file that will fit on a 360k disk! Defining a menu, or a table of contents, and defining a customized information screen is easy. The text viewer programs you make are complete with a fast "find" feature which enables you to quickly find and go to any portion of the text. You can compress text during conversion to save both memory and disk space, enable or disable printing permission for a measure of security, and specify titles and screen colours. Bigtext can automatically run your favourite .exe file compressor and then helpfully test runs the final product for you. You can also execute other programs from within your electronic books - great for demos or graphic illustrations. Bigtext comes with Text Paint and Text Capture utilities.

If you have written a book but have not yet managed to have it published, this program is for you. You can turn your book into a single program which will fit on a 360k disk which you can distribute to your friends and interested parties.

Bigtext is also perfect for catalogues, with over fifty section entries available on the main menu.

Software developers can make self-displaying manuals for their programs. This minimizes complexity for the user and adds a level of security to the information.
