   [Information from Voodoo-X Documention]
   Voodoo-X is an MUI based front-end for Dirk Stoecker's powerful
   unarchiving system xadmaster.library (Shareware). Unlike other
   dearchiver front-ends, Voodoo-X doesn't depend on external archiver
   commands (such as LZX, LHA, DMS, etc.) being in the C: drawer nor does
   it require complicated command line setups for these commands. This is
   because XAD does all the hard work. :-)
   
   Voodoo-X allows you to quickly browse an archive's contents and view
   individual files (with filetypes) like pictures and documents just by
   double clicking your mouse. This method of browsing archives proves to
   be highly effective since you don't need to get your hands dirty by
   extracting files to temporary locations such as Ram:. Voodoo-X does
   all that for you.
   
   Note: Voodoo-X doesn't actually write disk based archives (like
         DMS, xMash, etc.) back to disk, but instead examines them to
         see if they are OFS or FFS formatted, if they are, it then
         allows you to browse through the contents of them and retrieve
         individual files.

   Voodoo-X can also retrieve files from inside standard FFS formatted
   (i.e AmigaDOS) ADF files like those used with WinUAE. OFS, FFS,
   DirCache, International, double-density and high-density disks
   formats are all supported.

   xadmaster.library is a modular system and will support even more
   archiver formats in the future.

   FEATURES:
   o Browse many archives very quickly. Voodoo-X contains an archive
     history list, much like the URL history list of a web browser.
     This allows you to switch between archives VERY QUICKLY with only
     three clicks of the mouse button.

   o Retrieve files from within DMS archives (and other disk based
     archive formats too) without having to extract the entire archive
     to disk or a virtual disk device like FMS.

   o Browse archives inside archives. Quickly gain access to that
     document inside that LHA inside that LZX inside that DMS. ;)

   o Quickly view pictures, documents or similar files that are inside
     archives simply by double clicking on a file. Voodoo-X will then
     extract it and start the viewer of your choice.

   o Drag one or more archive icons from Workbench into the main window
     to browse their contents.

   o Support for multipart archives.

   o Virus checking. If you have Georg Hoermann's/Jan Erik Olausen
     xvs.library system installed, then you can check archives for file
     viruses. You can also specify if every file extracted should be
     checked.

   o Lots of archiver formats are supported (common ones and obscure
     ones). Disk image formats are also supported, so you can treat
     AmigaDOS formatted ADF files as normal archives under Voodoo-X.

   o Fast decompression, thanks to xadmaster.library. Note that this
     really depends on the client being used. Some clients are coded
     in C and might noticeably slower than the original archive program
     on older CPUs.

   o Very easy-to-use user interface, thanks to MUI.

   o Quickly copy, move or delete archives using pull down menus. This
     can be highly convenient when going through download directories.

   o Search window. Search for strings or filename patterns inside
     archives. Uses assembly optimized string search routines for
     greater speed.

   o Nice progress bars. :-)

                         About XAD-Master Library

                          Copyright Dirk Stöcker

   [Information from XAD-Master Homepage]
   Description
   This is a library providing an interface for unarchiving all
   possible types of file or disk archives. It is NOT an archiver GUI
   or anything like that. This system does the COMPLETE unarchiving
   stuff with internal routines, NOT calling shell programs or using
   other programs to do the work! It is comparable to xfdmaster.libray
   system providing same features for crunched files and programs.
 
   The system has lots of features. Here is a list of some:
     * unique interface for all archiver types
     * open structure and interfaces
     * users can add own archiver formats without much effort
     * uncrippled shareware
     * very stable and error resistant (unlike most of the original
       archivers)
     * most important archivers lha, lzx and zip are supported
     * most important disk archivers dms and zoom are supported
     * lots of other archivers are supported as well!
     * also supports self extracting archives, which could not be
       unarchived before (because they crash on newer Amigas or are
       for different operating systems)
     * disk archives can be extracted to disks and files (ADF)
     * files can be extracted from disk archives and disk image files
       directly
     * programs can use this system very easy (some virus checkers do
       already)
 
   Distributability
   The xadmaster.library is Shareware with very special conditions.
   There are no usage restrictions (means this is no Crippleware!),
   and xadmaster.library use can be implemented into programs without
   any restrictions.  Only the end users have to pay shareware fee,
   if using xadmaster.library.

   VHT-Canada Announcement
   Dirk now has the XAD package seperated to make for easier downloads.
   The xadmaster developer files and source examples are not available
   on VHT-CAN. If desired, you can Search Aminet for xadmasterdev.
   Now, you only have to download the archive you need (for your CPU):
   xadmaster000.lha : 68000 and 68010
   xadmaster020.lha : 68020, 68030, 68040
   xadmaster060.lha : 68060
   xadmasterdev.lha : developer files and source examples

                     The eXternal Virus Support Library
        Copyright Georg Hörmann, Alex van Niel and Jan Erik Olausen

   [Information from Virus Help Denmark]
   The entire XVS software package is written and copyright 1997-99 by
   Georg Hvrmann. During December 1999 to June 2001, Alex van Niel took
   over programming. Additional changes and updates during June 2001 and
   onwards are copyright 2001 Georg Hörmann and Jan Erik Olausen.

   This Library contains all the virus recognition and removal code that
   was formerly included in VirusZ. This step has been taken for one
   major reason: VirusZ can be updated fast without releasing the whole
   package every week by simply releasing a new library version.
                                      
   So simply install the library in this archive to your LIBS: drawer
   to get 100% protection against the latest viruses.
                                      
   Right now there are a few anti-virus that uses the xvs.library to
   find and remove the nasty viruses. Here are the names:
   VirusZ II & III - VirusChecker II - VirusExecutor - VirusSlayer II
   CheckX - Safe.

   [Note from Virus Help Team Canada]
   Andrew Bell uses Xvs.library in Voodoo-X, which is the GUI for the
   XAD package from Dirk Stoecker.
