Copyright (c) 1990 by Michael J. Roberts.  All rights reserved.

Ditch Day Drifter is a game that demonstrates TADS, the Text Adventure
Development System, a programming tool for writing text adventure games.

Ditch Day Drifter is being distributed free of charge.  Please feel free

Notes for ST users
------------------

To start the game, just double click on DITCH.PRG.  Once the game has started,
no further disk access to DITCH.PRG is required, so you can change disks if
you wish.  The only time that the disk is used during the game is for saving
and restoring.

On ST's, you may edit command lines with the arrow keys and other standard
editing keys.  Review Mode (described in DITCH.DOC) is activated with
function key F1.  While in review mode, you can scroll up and down by
lines using the arrow keys, and by pages using F9 and F10 as described on
the status line.

Saved games are stored in standard ST files, by default in the current
directory (the directory from which you start the game), so make sure
you have free disk space before you begin playing.
