                           ««« INTRODUCTION »»»

wkMenu  is a nice, font-sensitive boot menu with full keyboard support.  It
allows  creating  sub-menus and can be activated with or without caps lock.
It  uses  gadtools  to  create gadgets and is fully system friendly (I hope
:-).  It was designed to be a part of AStart (AStart is © Wojciech Kocjan),
but  functions  without  it  and  vice versa.  But if you are interested in
saving  memory on booting up, you really should also take a look at AStart.
It's  also  on  Aminet  (util/boot/AStartXX.lha  where XX means the version
number).

wkMenu  was  partially  based  on BangerMenu 1.235.  BangerMenu is © Andre´
Trettin.  However none of the code was in any way copied from that program.

                           ««« INSTALLATION »»»

To  install  it,  simply  copy  wkMenu program into C:  and put a following
lines somewhere in the startu-sequence:
                             --- cut here ---
C:wkMenu
If WARN
  EndCLI >NIL:
EndIf
                             --- cut here ---
If you'd like this menu to appear every time you boot up, put the following
lines instead:
                             --- cut here ---
C:wkMenu root
If WARN
  EndCLI >NIL:
EndIf
                             --- cut here ---
Also  make  the  dir  S:wkMenu  and  copy  the  config files from config to
S:wkMenu.  Read the next chapter on configuring wkMenu.

                            ««« CONFIGURING »»»

The  main  menu  of  wkMenu  is stored in S:wkMenu/root.  It can be changed
using  any  text editor (like Ed, CygnusEd, Emacs).  The format of the file
is as follows:

The label and _shortcut
X/nameofthefile

where:
The  label  and  the  _shortcut - the label of the gadget with optional '_'
	underscore. The character after '_' will be the keyboard shortcut
nameofthefile - function dependant
X - the function which should be executed:
	M - submenu (only  the name of the file  in S:wkMenu/ should be entered
		in nameofthefile , not entire path)
	E - execute script (whole path should be entered in nameofthefile)
	R - run file (not async, also entire path should be entered)

For  examples,  see  config  files.   If  you  have any more problems, then

long  as  no  fee  except  media  cost  is  charged.   wkMenu is absolutely
freeware.

It is dedicated to Santa Claus :-)
