----------------------------Original message----------------------------

On November 6, InteLex Corporation will release electronic editions
of the works of John Locke, George Berkeley, and David Hume. These
works will be bundled with the most sophisticated search and retrieval
software yet developed for personal computers - Folio Corporation's
With the VIEWS program, every word of the text database is indexed.
VIEWS supports boolean searches (and, or, not), as well as wildcard,
literal string, nested, and proximity searches. In addition, VIEWS
supports hypertext linking: for example all of Berkeley's references to
Locke are linked by tokens, which allow the user to go immediately from
the Berkeley to the Locke. Finally, the VIEWS indexing process results
in databases roughly 60% the size of the original ASCII text files. The
contents of any window (including the opening window which contains the
entire database) may be output to disk (as an ASCII file) or printer.
Minimum system requirements: IBM PC, PC AT, PS/2 and compatibles,
512K RAM, one hard drive, and one 360K, 720K, or 1.44MB flopy drive.
For MacIntosh systems, the text will be sold as ASCII, without the
Folio VIEWS system.
InteLex is releasing the following texts, based on the editions
indicated in parentheses, but including corrections where errors were
found in the editions:

Subject: TACT 1.1 Available

I'd like to announce the availability of version 1.1 of TACT.
With 1.1, TACT (text retrieval software created at the University
of Toronto, and given free to all attendees at Toronto's Dynamic
Text Conference last June) can now support much larger texts.
The release also includes a few new features, and the inevitable
collection of bug fixes. In addition, a new, enlarged, version
of the Guide has been prepared.

If you'd like to get a copy of the new version, please contact U
of Toronto's Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH). They
are charging a distribution fee of $30 (CDN) or $25 (US) for a
copy of 1.1 on disk, plus a preprinted, bound, copy of the Guide
(about 135 pages). Both the software and the Guide continue to
be shareware -- you are welcome to distribute copies of either
yourself, as long as you are not doing it for profit.

For a copy of 1.1, contact:

Although TACT is being distributed by the CCH, development
continues to be done by Lidio Presutti and myself at Toronto's
Computing Services (UTCS). Hence:
