============================== F E A T U R E S ==============================

1. It's freeware;

2. Source supports build for any modern Amiga;

3. Correct switch between screens and windows on any modern Amiga;

4. The installer allows you to select the OS, path and switch key;

5. Tooltypes are supported and you can launch the application from WBStartup.

============================ R E Q U I R E M E N T ==========================

SWitch tested and worked fine on the following configurations:

- AmigaOS 3.9               (Kickstart 40.68, Workbench 45.1)
- AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition (Kickstart 53.70, Workbench 53.14)
- IcarOS i386               (Kickstart 51.51, Workbench 40.0, AROS ABIv0)
- AROS One i386             (Kickstart 51.51, Workbench 40.0, AROS ABIv0)

================================= U S A G E =================================

If you don't write your tooltypes  in  the  app icon,  nothing  terrible will
happen.  In this case SWitch  will use the default values.  SWitch by default
thinks that you will use hotkey L.Alt + Esc for open "SWitch List" window.

Tooltypes:

DONOTWAIT
         Supported by Workbench.  Without this tooltype, Workbench will
         wait until you quit this program before its launches the next.

QUIET
         QUIET allows you to supress any warnings or error information
         SWitch outputs if not successful in setting itself up.
         Defaults to NOT being quiet.  (QUIET=FALSE).

HOTKEY
         This is the key to press to make the jump window appear.
         Default is "rawkey lalt esc".  <- that's the LEFT ALT and ESC.

POINTERRELATIVE
         When present, jump window will appear relative to the position
         of the mouse.  To stop this from happening, change this tooltype
         to (POINTERRELATIVE).  Defaults to not being pointer-relative.

LEFTEDGE
         The left edge coordinate of the jump window.
         Defaults to 0.

TOPEDGE
         The top edge coordinate of the jump window.
         Defaults to 20.

WIDTH
         The width of the jump window.
         Defaults to 300.

HEIGHT
         The height of the jump window.
         Defaults to 150.

JUMPCLICKS
         The number of clicks needed to jump to a window.  This value can
         be set to 1 or 2.  If the value is one, clicking once on a screen
         or window name will activate the window.  If the value is two, you
         must double-click the screen or window name.
         Defaults to 1.

============================= C H A N G E L O G =============================

Release 1.3, Eugene Sobolev

   - Splitting the source into two parts: AmigaOS 4 (interface support) and
     AmigaOS 3 (adapted for AROS ABIv0 support)
   - Added NewLook style for menu (old AmigaOS 2 menu is trash)
   - Fixed bouncing screen in AROS and AmigaOS 4 (related to incompatibly)
   - Removing windows without titles and with empty titles from SWitch List
     for protect of AROS Wanderer and AmigaOS 4 Workbench
   - Minimum requirements increased to AmigaOS 3
   - Added Installer script with OS autodetect, path and hotkey setting

Release 1.2, John Haubrich

   - I accidentally required V39 of intuition.library. 
     The minimum requirement is now V37.
	 Although V39 does offer some enhanced functionality.
   - The "Revision History" link in the documentation has been fixed.

Release 1.1, John Haubrich

   Eivind 'Leo' Nordseth recommended two enhancements:
   
   - Scrolling down via keyboard no longer forces the active item  to  remain
     at the top of the list.
   - Pressing the hotkey more than once will not pop up the window list again
     after it is closed. Also, the documentation has been improved a little.

Release 1.0, John Haubrich

     Walter Watzl asked  for a commodity  which  acts like  the  OS/2  window
	 switcher utility.  Under OS/2, the Ctrl + ESC key sequence brings  up  a
	 list of all windows and allows you to flip directly to whichever one you
     want. John written program duplicates and extends the OS/2 system.

Based on aminet version source
http://aminet.net/package/util/boot/SWitch_src

This is based on the source code of the original version Switch 1.2 which was
written back in 1994 by the talented programmer John M. Haubrich, Jr. You can
find my source codes in Source directory.  They are easily compiled  with the
attached Makefile in gcc for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4 and AROS ABIv0, like:

$ make -f Makefile OS=AOS3
$ make -f Makefile OS=AOS4
$ make -f Makefile OS=AROS32
