INSTALLING SYSTEM-MANAGER-COMPLIANT APPLICATIONS
Installing a system-compliant program involves using MEMO to add one line to file APNAME.LST. If the system-compliant file resides on the C drive, APNAME.LST must reside in C:\_DAT. A separate APNAME.LST file residing on A:\ should be created for any system-compliant .EXM files on the A drive. The maximum number of entries collectively allowed in both APNAME.LST files is eight.
The line in APNAME.LST is of the form:
where "drive:\path" is the location of the file and should be in caps; "filename.exm" is the DOS name of the application file; "xxxx" is the numerical code for the key combination to which you're assigning this program; and "name" is the name you give the application. "xxxx" varies depending on which key you're assigning the program to.
In the example on page 8, ae00 assigns Ctrl-Filer to TigerFox and b200 assigns Ctrl-Comm to Hearts & Bones. Below is a keycode list for Alt and Ctrl combinations of all of the built-in application keys.
HP 95LX KEYCODE ASSIGNMENTS
For a complete listing of keys download KEYS.95 from CompuServe or obtain the file on the Jan/Feb, 1992 issue of The HP Palmtop Paper On Disk.
Before creating the APNAME.LST, you should back up your files. Once APNAME.LST is created, reboot your 95LX by pressing <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del>.
