A User's Guide to SpeedoGDOS



INTRODUCTION

This document describes the new features of SpeedoGDOSTM. We should begin 
with a quick review of what GDOS is and what it allows you to do. GDOS is 
actually an extension of your operating system. It allows the programs that you 
run to output text and graphics to printers and other devices besides the screen. 
GDOS also enables you to print text in many different typefaces. Instead of typing 
characters in the standard system font, you now have access to Swiss (the 
Bitstream version of Helvetica), Dutch (the Bitstream version of Times), and a 
multitude of other fonts. 

GDOS is run when you first turn on your machine. For now, don't worry about 
where to put it or what it needs to run. Either your machine came with GDOS 
pre-installed or our INSTALL program will set your system up so that everything 
will be placed in the correct location. Please read the next two sections before 
starting.


BASIC CONCEPTS

SpeedoGDOS represents the latest and by far the most powerful release of Atari 
GDOS. Your first question is probably What's the difference between the GDOS 
that I have now and SpeedoGDOS?  The main difference between the two is that 
SpeedoGDOS allows programs to print in scalable outline fonts instead of bitmap 
fonts. Outline fonts offer high-quality text at all sizes, whereas bitmap fonts are 
limited to a small number of sizes that become unappealing when crudely scaled 
by the system. Furthermore, unlike the bitmap fonts found in regular GDOS, 
outline fonts allow you to use the same font file to print a character of almost any 
size on almost any output device. This is because the description of the characters 
and not the character data is stored in the font file. An a for example is built using 
the same set of rules whether it's built at 10 points or at 24 points. This means you 
no longer need a separate font for the different screen resolutions and, more 
importantly, you no longer need separate fonts for your printers and other devices. 
SpeedoGDOS can create all of these characters for all devices and all sizes using 
the same font description.

If you want to continue using some of the bitmap fonts that came with GDOS, 
that's fine. SpeedoGDOS will still support bitmap fonts. In fact, another new 
feature in SpeedoGDOS is font caching. With old versions of GDOS, every bitmap 
font that you used took up memory, and your machine would quickly run out of 
space. With font caching, you tell SpeedoGDOS how much memory you wish to 
devote to storing your bitmap fonts. This memory is called a cache. SpeedoGDOS 
will load in the font as it's used. When there is no longer any room for the next 
font, SpeedoGDOS will get rid of one of the fonts to make room. As long as the 
memory that you allocate is bigger than the largest font, SpeedoGDOS will be able 
to use as many bitmap fonts as you wish in a limited amount of space.


GETTING STARTED

Installing SpeedoGDOS onto your system is a simple task. Either you already have 
SpeedoGDOS pre-installed on your hard drive, or you have to install it from 
floppies. In the former case, you don't need to do anything. In the latter, put disk 
#1 into your floppy drive. Run INSTALL.PRG to put a new GDOS onto your 
system. The INSTALL program will walk you through the steps needed to install 
your GDOS. When the installation is complete, you will have all of the necessary 
files on your system.

After the installation is complete, you must reboot your machine to enable the new 
edition of GDOS. If you've installed it correctly, you'll get the new SpeedoGDOS 
sign-on message while you boot up. If all went well, GDOS was installed and you 
should be seeing a normal desktop. If GDOS gives you an error message while 
booting up, run the INSTALL program again paying close attention to any 
installation error messages which may come up. Note that the installation program 
will install brand new device drivers, and that old drivers will not work with 
SpeedoGDOS.

SpeedoGDOS should be compatible with whatever word processing and drawing 
programs that you have now. Try running some of these programs to see how they 
work with SpeedoGDOS. Note that the installation program will set up your 
system so that you can use all of your new Speedo fonts immediately. To change 
the setup (e.g., to add more point sizes), read the next section on how to use the 
Outline Fonts and Printer Drivers Utilities. 


USING THE UTILITIES

SpeedoGDOS comes with two utilities to help you customize your setup. The first 
utility, Outline Fonts, will allow you to add or subtract fonts, change the available 
sizes, and adjust cache sizes. The other one, Printer Drivers, will be useful if you 
want to change printers or change some driver setting such as final/draft mode or 
paper size. 

If you have one megabyte of memory or less, the installation program installed the 
utilities, OUTLINE.PRG and DRIVERS.PRG on the root of your boot drive (i.e., 
C:\). To run the utilities, treat them like any other application; we recommend 
that you keep OUTLINE.PRG and DRIVERS.PRG on your desktop, so you can use 
them right before or right after you exit your program. 

If you have more memory, the installation program will make them accessories, 
placing them on the root of your boot drive as OUTLINE.ACC and DRIVERS.ACC. 
The accessories will appear in the menu bar, and will be accessible while an 
application is running. You can run a desk accessory anytime by selecting it on the 
menu bar. Although more convenient, accessories use up more system memory, so 
if you are running MultiTOSTM or just need more memory, you could make them 
programs by changing the filename extension from .ACC to .PRG.

For the rest of this discussion, we will refer to either accessory or program as a 
utility and will refer to them by their respective names: Outline Fonts and Printer 
Drivers. The following sections will briefly discuss how to use the utilities. If you 
are an expert user or just want more detail, refer to Appendix II. For a more 
concise explanation, try the Quick Reference Guide.


The Outline Fonts Utility

The Outline Fonts Utility allows you to configure SpeedoGDOS to your particular 
system. Using this utility, you can tell SpeedoGDOS which fonts you want to use 
and what point sizes you need for each font. After bringing up the utility, you will 
notice a list of installed fonts. These are the fonts currently active, which means 
that you will be able to use them in your applications. When you click on one or 
more of the font names (and it becomes highlighted), you can click the Remove 
Fonts button to delete the font or click the Set Points button to change the 
available point sizes. To make multiple selections, hold down the keyboard's 
[Shift] key and click on the font names. 

Double-click on a font name to change its point sizes. The point sizes that you 
choose are the ones that you can use with applications, although newer programs 
allow you to choose any point size without specifying them through the utility. In 
order to add different fonts, you can click on the Install All button to make every 
font available, or click on the Unused Fonts button to examine the list of available 
fonts. Now you can choose from the list of unused fonts and activate them. Select 
some uninstalled fonts and click on the Install Font(s) button. The fonts will be 
activated, and they will be available when you run your applications. You can see 
the new fonts on the installed list by clicking on OK, returning to the first display. 
Then click on Save to save your changes.

The Printer Drivers Utility

The Printer Drivers Utility's primary function is to allow you to select a printer 
driver to match the printer that you are currently using. When you first run the 
utility, the active printer driver should be displayed at the top under Current 
Printer. Following that is a list of other available printer drivers. If the Current 
Printer does not match the one that you are using, select the correct printer from 
the list, and click on Save. You can change the settings on the current driver by 
clicking on Configure. The Configure dialog box allows you to change settings 
such as the paper size, the dots per inch, or the number of colors. If you return to 
the main menu, you can also set the Quality of subsequent printouts for your 
printer by choosing either Final or Draft. Draft mode should produce lower-quality 
output at a higher speed, and Final mode should produce the highest-quality 
output from your printer at a slower speed.

CONCLUSION

You now know enough about SpeedoGDOS to be able to use it to print scalable 
fonts using both new and existing programs. At the end of this document is a quick 
reference guide; the guide should assist you to use SpeedoGDOS and its utilities. If 
you want more details about how SpeedoGDOS works or about either of the 
utilities, please go on to the following appendixes.


Appendix I - A Detailed Look at SpeedoGDOS


THE EXTEND.SYS FILE

SpeedoGDOS looks for a special file, the EXTEND.SYS file, in the folder in which 
you keep your Speedo fonts. The EXTEND.SYS file provides a mode of 
communication between you and SpeedoGDOS. This works in very much the same 
manner as the way that GDOS is given information through its ASSIGN.SYS file. 
The file contains the list of installed fonts, their point sizes, the different cache 
sizes, and even widthtable information. Fortunately, your Speedo utilities handle 
the details of what is contained in this file, and you should never have to examine 
or modify its contents. 


CACHE MANAGEMENT

One of the things in the EXTEND.SYS file that your utilities will allow you to 
manipulate is cache size. SpeedoGDOS maintains two caches to keep track of 
Speedo font information. The first of the two, the Character cache, holds the 
actual character data (i.e., the bitmap of the individual character). When a 
character is requested, SpeedoGDOS builds the bitmap using the instructions 
which it gets from the font file. This takes a fair amount of time. Instead of 
building the character each time it is requested, SpeedoGDOS saves the bitmap of 
the character into the cache. The next time SpeedoGDOS needs the character, it 
simply retrieves it from the cache taking a fraction of the time that it would have 
taken to build it. Obviously, the performance of your machine will improve as you 
devote more memory to this cache. 

The second cache (Miscellaneous) is used for internal buffers and data structures. 
The size needed for this cache varies depending on how many fonts and point 
sizes are included in your EXTEND.SYS file. The cache size needed also depends 
on the size of the characters that must be generated. With all  these variables 
involved, it is hard to recommend an optimal amount of memory to devote to this 
cache, although the Outline Fonts Utility recommends a minimum in the Cache 
Options dialog box. It is possible to have the cache set too small to accommodate a 
particular situation; the result is a Not Enough Speedo Cache Memory message. 
When you see this message, save your document as soon as possible and increase 
the amount of cache. You must reboot your machine to incorporate the new cache 
size. When you're adding fonts or modifying the cache size in the Speedo Outline 
Fonts Utility, the Outline Fonts Utility will warn you if it determines that your 
Miscellaneous cache is too small. Again, experiment with these values to tune it for 
your particular system. If you've got 4 megabytes on your system, you are able to 
allocate a lot more cache. If you're working with 1 megabyte, you may need to 
decrease these numbers. For normal usage (i.e., no 200-point characters), 100,000 
bytes or so is probably the most you will need for the Miscellaneous cache.

As mentioned before, SpeedoGDOS will also handle the caching of bitmap fonts 
(old-style GDOS fonts that have the file extender .FNT). It is a good idea to make 
the bitmap cache larger than the biggest bitmap font that you have in your 
ASSIGN.SYS file. If the cache is too small for a font, the font will not be loaded 
into the system. If the cache is too small to hold any bitmap fonts, SpeedoGDOS 
will ignore them altogether. If you don't plan to use bitmap fonts, you should set 
the cache size to 0.

To set the sizes for all available caches, run the Outline Fonts Utility, and refer to 
Appendix II. Note that after changing cache sizes, you must reboot to make the 
changes take effect. In addition, fonts and point sizes may be added, deleted, or 
changed freely, but SpeedoGDOS will only recognize these changes when the next 
application is launched.


WIDTHTABLES

Another feature of SpeedoGDOS is widthtables. Programs need to obtain the 
widths of characters to determine where on the screen or page to place them. 
When the width of a character is requested, SpeedoGDOS will either get the width 
from the widthtables (if they're turned on), or get the width from the font 
generator (if widthtables are turned off). Most programs do not require 
widthtables, even if they are turned on, and unless your program will not work 
properly, we recommend that you keep them off. If widthtables are turned on, the 
user may notice long unexpected delays while the application is booting up. This 
delay is caused by the time it takes SpeedoGDOS to generate the tables. Obviously, 
the more fonts and point sizes you have, the longer the delay will be. 

If you have an often-used application that requires widthtables, the Outline Fonts 
Utility may be used to pre-build the widthtables and store them into your Speedo 
directory (see Appendix II). When the application is being loaded, SpeedoGDOS 
sees if the widthtables are turned on, and then checks this directory to see if the 
widthtables are there. If they are, Speedo will load them in and use them, saving 
considerable time booting up the program. The widthtable must have been built in 
the same resolution that you're currently running the application in order for 
SpeedoGDOS to recognize it. Finally, it is important to note that most current 
versions of popular software do not require widthtables, but certain programs 
(e.g., Microsoft Write), for reasons too complicated to discuss here, need 
widthtables turned on in order for them to run correctly. 


USING SPEEDOGDOS WITH MULTITOS

SpeedoGDOS is completely compatible with MultiTOS, but a few precautions are 
in order. Naturally, if you run more than one GDOS application, expect more 
Miscellaneous cache usage; although GDOS shares most of its data between 
processes, every application requires some overhead. You will know if you've run 
out of Miscellaneous cache when the application isn't able to print, or when it can't 
run at all. You should simply increase the size of your Miscellaneous cache and 
reboot.

Another behavior that you may encounter is inconsistent font information between 
applications when you use the utilities. In regular TOSTM, when you change 
something with the utilities while you are running an application, you have to quit 
the application and restart to invoke the change (or reboot if you've changed a 
cache size). The same goes for MultiTOS, except that you should quit all GDOS 
applications.

Appendix II - Using the Utilities

Two utilities have been provided for SpeedoGDOS: the Outline Fonts Utility and 
the Printer Drivers Utility. The Outline Fonts Utility allows you to make fonts and 
point sizes available to applications, as well as manipulate caches and build 
widthtables. The Printer Drivers Utility lets you select a driver and change its 
settings such as page size or number of colors. The following sections explain how 
to use each utility.

 NOTE: Depending on how much memory your system has, the
installation program created the utilities as either accessories or as plain programs. 
As accessories, you can run the utilities while inside an application. You can 
examine values and even change them, although you must exit the application or 
reboot depending on the changes made. As programs, you must exit an application 
in order to run either utility (unless you are running MultiTOS). In addition, 
accessories take up significant amounts of system memory. If, for some reason 
(e.g., an application will not run due to lack of memory), you wish to free up some 
system memory, rename your accessory's filename extender from .ACC to .PRG 
and reboot.


THE OUTLINE FONTS UTILITY

The Outline Fonts Utility allows you to configure SpeedoGDOS to your particular 
system. Using the utility, you can tell SpeedoGDOS which fonts you want to use, 
what point sizes you want available for each font, and how much memory to 
devote to different caches. The following is an explanation of the utility, broken up 
into sections based on either the label of the dialog box or the name of a button.

	 Note: Changes made through this utility will be made effective 
only after you have quit all GDOS applications and restart; if you change any of 
the cache sizes, you must reboot.
Installed Fonts

After bringing up the Outline Fonts Utility, you will notice a list of installed fonts. 
These are the fonts currently active, which means that you will be able to use them 
in your applications.

Removing Fonts

When you click on one or more of the font names (and it becomes highlighted), 
the Remove Fonts button will become enabled, and it will let you delete the 
font(s). The font(s) will be put on the available list.

Setting Points

When you click on one or more of the font names (and it becomes highlighted), 
the Set Points button will become enabled, and it will let you change the available 
point sizes. You can also double-click on a font name to change its point sizes. The 
point sizes that you choose are the ones that you can use with applications, 
although current versions of most programs allow you to choose any point size 
without specifying it through the utility.

Unused Fonts

The Unused Fonts button will change the display so that you can look at the list of 
inactive fonts. The list is labelled Available Fonts.

Install Fonts

When you select one or more fonts from the Available Fonts list, the Install Fonts 
button will become enabled so that you can make them available to applications.

Set Points

When you select one or more fonts from the Available Fonts list, the Set Points 
button will become enabled so that you can set the point sizes available for the 
fonts.

Select All

The Select All button will select all of the fonts on the Available Fonts list. All of 
the fonts will be highlighted, and you can use the Install Fonts button to put them 
on the Installed Fonts list.


Options

The Options button brings up a dialog box so that you can change the path where 
fonts are found, set the default point sizes, change cache settings, or build 
widthtables.

Path Options

If you click on the Path Options button, the utility will display the path where 
SpeedoGDOS looks for the Speedo font files. To change the path, click on the path 
itself and the utility will bring up a file selector. You can then select the drive and 
folder where your fonts are to be located.

Point Sizes

This button will let you create the list of point sizes that every subsequently 
activated font will have. In addition, once you create the list, you can click on the 
Set All Fonts button and all of the currently activated fonts will use the default 
sizes. Note that most applications do not need fixed point sizes made available.

Cache Options

The Cache Options button brings up a dialog box that gives you pertinent 
information about all of the GDOS caches and allows you to manipulate them.
Cache Settings. This section of the dialog box displays the sizes of all of the caches 
in kilobytes. You change the values by either using the up/down arrows or clicking 
on the corresponding value so that you may edit it from the keyboard. There are 
three caches that you must maintain: Character, Miscellaneous, and Bitmap Font. 

The first cache, labelled Character, is the cache where the individual outline font 
characters are stored. Remember that Speedo must build its characters before it 
displays them. You may notice a slight delay the first time that you type a 
character. Because Speedo stores (caches) away the generated character data, the 
next time you display those characters they will be output much faster. The cache 
should be set to a minimum of 50,000 bytes, although if your system has only a 
megabyte of memory, 20,000 bytes would be reasonable. 

The second cache, Miscellaneous, is used by SpeedoGDOS to store internal data 
structures. It should be set to at least 50,000 bytes, or 20,000 bytes if you are short 
of memory. Note that the Miscellaneous required value in the Cache Information 
section should be used as minimum amount of memory. Remember that if you do 
have a limited amount of RAM, you should correspondingly limit the number and 
size of fonts that you choose. You can use Speedo fonts effectively on small 
systems with very small caches, as long as you aren't using too many fonts and you 
use normal point sizes (e.g. 10, 14, 24 points). Finally, the last cache is the Bitmap 
Font cache where the old-style, GDOS bitmap fonts are stored. To set this cache, 
find out which bitmap fonts you use and what their file sizes are. To set the very 
minimal cache size, just set the cache to be as big as the biggest bitmap font file.

Cache. 

Using the Cache section of the dialog box, you are able to load, save, or flush your 
Speedo character cache. At first glance, you can see how useful these functions can 
be. As an example, say you had a document that contained only Bitstream Charter 
in 10, 14, and 18 point characters. Since the characters are being displayed on the 
screen, you know that they've been cached by Speedo. Save the cache, using a 
name that you can easily associate with your document file. The next time you're 
ready to load this file, flush the cache, then read in the cache which was saved out 
with your file. After loading the document notice how fast the screen is able to 
redraw. This is because Speedo does not need to generate any of the character 
data for the document. An append function (Merge Cache) allows you to add 
character data to your cache instead of replacing the already existing data. It 
should be noted here that your cache is not lost when you exit your program. If 
you leave your program and then enter it again without a reboot, your cache will 
be preserved. If the utility detects a file named DEFAULT.SPD in your Speedo 
directory when your machine boots up, it will automatically be loaded into the 
cache (Note: this feature only works as an accessory).

Cache Information. 

This section of the dialog box displays useful diagnostic information for managing 
GDOS caches. The Miscellaneous Cache Required value is an approximate 
minimum value for the miscellaneous cache; this means that a reasonable 
application should be able to access the fonts that you have installed. You should 
set this cache to a size above this value, although there is no guarantee that your 
application will not use more of the Miscellaneous cache. The Unused 
Miscellaneous Cache value will give you an approximate idea of how much 
memory is available. You can check this value while your application is running to 
make sure that there is sufficient memory. The Unused Character Cache value also 
displays how much memory is available to GDOS to generate characters. If a larger 
character or your printer characters are not generated, or printouts take an 
unusually long time, check this value. The cache might be too small to 
accommodate a large character bitmap, or the cache might be thrashing 
(continuously flushing and reloading the same characters); in either case, 
increasing the Character cache could alleviate the problem.

Widthtables

This button will bring up a dialog box that allows you to turn widthtables on or 
off, and build them if necessary. You don't really need to know what widthtables 
are, but they may be necessary for your application. Refer to your application's 
documentation or call the software company that produced the application you are 
using to see if they recommend using widthtables (NOTE: Most applications no 
longer require widthtables). Otherwise, if your application handles text correctly 
without widthtables, leave them off. If you must turn them on, just remember to 
build them whenever you change something in the accessory when it warns you to 
build them. Note that you may need to build widthtables again if you change 
resolutions.

Save

This button saves the changes made to the EXTEND.SYS file.


THE PRINTER DRIVERS UTILITY

The main function of the Printer Drivers Utility is to allow you to choose which 
printer you wish to use with GDOS. This is particularly useful when you physically 
want to change printers (e.g., you switch from a dot-matrix printer for proofing to 
a laser printer for final output). You can also select final or draft mode from this 
utility. Selecting draft mode reduces the quality of output while speeding up 
printing time. (Note that some printers do not support draft mode.) In addition, 
the Printer Drivers Utility manipulates the configuration file called ASSIGN.SYS. 
This file contains the information on where GDOS locates its drivers and bitmap 
fonts and which of those GDOS should use. The installation program should have 
set up your ASSIGN.SYS file so that you don't really need to change anything. The 
utility will be most useful to you when you need to change printers. Novice users 
should limit the changes made with this utility, although users familiar with the 
ASSIGN.SYS format will find it easy to configure their systems.

 Note: Some applications will allow you to change printer drivers, 
modify their settings, and switch final/draft mode while the application is running. 
You can experiment with your individual application, or you can always quit your 
application and restart when you make changes.

Current Printer

When you run the utility, it should come up displaying the current printer. If you 
wish to use a different printer, just click on a printer on the Available Printers list.

Available Printers

This is the list of available printer drivers. If there are none available, use the Set 
Path button to find out where your drivers are located. To make one of the 
printers the Current Printer, click on the name of the printer on the list. To change 
the settings on a particular printer driver, double-click or use the Configure 
button.

Quality

This allows you to choose final or draft mode for your current printer.

Remove

This allows you to remove the current printer driver so that none is selected.

Configure

This button brings up a dialog box to configure the current printer driver. 
Configuring drivers should be done before running an application. You should 
then see a display of the driver specifications. Note that if a box is shadowed, you 
may change its value by clicking on it. If the particular printer driver you have 
chosen supports a particular feature (e.g., different page sizes or color palettes), 
use the pop-up menu to look at the available selections. All you need to do is click 
on the appropriate selection. Note that some drivers do not have any configurable 
features. Also, remember that the utility will modify the actual driver on your 
floppy or hard disk when a modification is made.

 Note: One feature found on all drivers is the Print Area Offsets. 
When this feature is turned on, the size of the page that the driver will return to 
your application includes the non-printable area. If it is off, the size of the page 
will only include the printable area. Please consult your application's 
documentation to see whether to turn this feature on. The default is off, since 
older applications will not take advantage of it.

Custom

This button is for expert users, and the average user should never have to invoke 
this dialog box. The Custom button brings up a dialog box that allows you to 
change the device assignments found in the ASSIGN.SYS file.

Set Path

Clicking on Set Path will bring up the standard file selector and allow you to 
change where the drivers are found.

Save

Saves out all of your changes to disk.

Exit

Exits the utility; will not save your changes.
