time I see a geocities URL I usually consider it subject to evaporation
without notice :-)
I've had and used API Spy for about 12 months now. It was originally
recommended to me my one of the PCMagazine programmers and I've occasionally
used it when beta testing various programs.
API Spy+++ http://www.geocities.com/prototype_terrizer/VBToolz.htm
I wouldn't be the least surprised to discover that its author is active in
hacking/cracking software (and for all I know constructing viruses etc.) but
as the NRA says, guns don't kill people, people do.
I just had a look at some of the other offerings on that site - definitely
programs / tools for someone interested in "how things work". I'd exercise
due diligence and run any executables through a virus-checker just in case
Another program that allows you to capture (and modify) titles (and also
experiment with setting all sorts of other parameters) is:
WinExplorer v1.30 http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/winexp.html Looking at some
of the other free utilities on offer these may also be (euphemistically)
"dual purpose" but at least it avoids profanity :-)
I leave it up to you whether you want to try either of these put I'm pretty
sure your computer won't go up in flames as a result.
Regards ... Alec
