Ranger is an AmigaOS diagnostic tool which displays all sorts of resources.

Ranger will automatically update the list of processes and DOS devices as
they are added and removed. Refresh buttons are provided for everything
that is not automatically updated.

Signals can be generated for processes which helps programmers when
those processes are stuck waiting.

Ranger is written to be a system monitor which obeys the rules of the
operating system. The design is such that Ranger will not poke around
and make the system less stable than it already is. Ranger is written
by a programmer for programmers.

As such, Ranger may appear to be less "user friendly" than other similar
tools. For example, "Refresh" buttons are often required to refresh data.

Any data which can be displayed without using Forbid() and/or Disable()
will not be displayed until you hit a refresh button. Everything else
will be automatically displayed. This is to avoid problems with starting
up Ranger when the system is in an indeterminate state (i.e. something
has crashed).

There is no "Kill Window" option because that operation is not supported
by the operating system. Such convenience features always make the system
less stable. If/when the OS provides such functionality it will of course
be added to Ranger.

Please note that if you see a field that says "Undefined" it most
likely means Ranger is missing a definition. Email me describing
which field and the circumstances so that it can be fixed.

Automatic PCI device and vendor decoding is provided via the pci.ids file
which is maintained at official support site http://pciids.sf.net

A copy of the pci.ids file included in the archive for your convenience
and is refreshed directly from the source with each Ranger release.

Manually copy the pci.ids file to DEVS: and Ranger will be able to decode
the device and vendor codes into string labels. If the file is not present
Ranger will only display the codes in hex.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions, comments
or questions:

- Fixed bug in DOS/Volumes Open File Handles which did not reset the
  list when Refresh was pressed.
  (thanks Colin Wenzel)
- Height of the DOS/Volumes Open File Handles list now varies with the
  window height.
- Replaced the DOS/Volumes Lock List with a field after it was explained
  this field is most often zero and not under the control of DOS so it
  could in fact contain anything.
  (thanks Colin Wenzel)
- Fixed to compile with SDK 53.24.

- Fixed DOS/Devices/Block Size field to display the correct
  block size in bytes at all times.
  (thanks Colin Wenzel)
- Added "Open File Handles" list for each volume listed in the
  DOS/Volumes tab. Requires dos.library 53.129 or higher to function.
  (thanks Colin Wenzel)
- Now disables BIOS version information in the Hardware/Firmware tab
  if there is no biosversion.resource present.
