      What is NewzPoint?

      Good question...

      * It is a tabbed layout display of multiple web pages using a
      configuration file to automaticlly generate the display.
      * Refresh rates are set for each page to keep them updated.
      * Change the page location or the refresh rates on the fly.
      * Add pages and Groups on the fly
      * Ability to generate html pages (used in the comics page)

      What does this really mean to me...

      * Keep the webpages as current as your want, quickly accessible,
      using a minimal ammount of space
      * It pulls content from the web (not content pusher)

      Requirements
      * Tcl/Tk version 8.3.4 (or greater) or TclKit
      * Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 (or greater)
      * Microsoft Windows 95 (or greater)

      Installation
      * Download links available from the Tcl Wiki page on NewzPoint
      http://wiki.tcl.tk/newzpoint
      or
      http://mini.net/tcl/2952.html
      * If you have Tcl/Tk installed:
      1. download newzpoint13.zip
      2. unzip the file (keep the tree structure)
      3. run the newzpoint.tcl file

      * You just want to run NewzPoint (and Tcl/Tk is not installed):
      1. download newzpoint13_tclkit.zip
      2. download TclKit for Windows if not already installed
      3. unzip all the files to a directory
      4. run the newzpoint.bat file

      Invoked by:
      wish83.exe newzpoint13.tcl
      or
      (double click) newzpoint13.tcl
      or
      tclkit newzpoint13.bin

      Configuration
      Current version is 1.3 (3/28/2002)

      * fixed focus issue with optcl and tk by using ffidl
      * Add ability to Add Group or Page on the fly
      * Added help files
      * Relayed out the Buttons on Interface
      * Initial Support for tkHtml/browser (no quite there but...started)

      See newzpoint.ini file for more information (not generated until you
      have run newzpoint one time)
