SUMMARY ------- 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. PURPOSE ------- 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. UNDEFINED FIELDS ---------------- 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. PCI DEVICE AND VENDOR DECODING ------------------------------ 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.

Thanks! HISTORY ------- 1.59 - 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. 1.58 - 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.
