REM iiiii is a 5 digit reference number followed by the

REM text message. Some or all of the messages can be translated

REM Into another language and if this file is then returned

REM by disk1 or Email to Crescent we can use it to configure

REM for that language and return an updated version of the software.


REM Reference numbers greater than 10000 are the text on

REM the Cadfil menus. I.E. 10101 is menu 1 item 1, 10102 is

REM menu 1 item 2, 10310 is menu 3 item 10 etc.


REM Menu strings can have a & which sets the following character

REM as the 'hot key' for that menu option.


REM Some strings have items such as 'xxxxxxx' or'yyyyyyy'. These

REM x's are replaced by a number value at run time. Do not change

REM the number of x's or y's but the position in the string

REM can change.
