   Note:
   It is with great sadness, that Jan Erik Olausen the programmer of
   VirusExecutor has desided to stop programming on the Amiga, this means
   that VirusExecutor is not going to updated anymore.
   BUT: But don't forget VirusExecutor is still a very good antivirus
   program, and can still be used with no problems at all, as long as you
   remember to update the xvs.library

   FEATURES:
   VirusExecutor (VE) is a virus killer that's meant to be easy to use.
   There's no 'advanced' options in the program that you almost never
   use anyway. This doesn't mean that VE is in the lack of power!

   * Easy to use (hopefully) ;)
   * Automatically analyzes an unknown bootblock. Detects 99% of any
     new virus
   * Bootblock database for recording of utilities boots, loaders etc
   * Checks files inside archives (multiple)
   * Checks memory every 3 seconds for viruses and patches
   * 'File integrity' feature using MD5 128 bits security
   * A huge patch brain with over 2.000 known patch entries
   * Locale support
   * SegTracker support
   * disassembler.library support
   * LiveUpdate of the most important files
                                      
   VirusExecutor is now, through the use of the Xvs.library able to detect
   all the older and some of the new viruses. So please remember to update
   the xvs.library for recog. of all the new viruses....

   [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.

                 Copyright Georg Hörmann and Dirk Stöcker
 
   [Information from xfdmaster.library Homepage]
   As Georg Hörmann has not longer time to develop both xfdmaster
   library and VirusZ antivirus program (together with xvs.library),
   I (Dirk Stöcker) do further updates.
   This software package allows you to decrunch almost every packed
   file known on the Amiga. It consists of the xfdmaster.library as
   the brain and a couple of programs that offer certain functions to
   the user.
   The xfdmaster.library is a standard Amiga shared, runtime library.
   It works with Kickstart V33+ and offers applications the possibility
   to directly support any crunched files.
   The xfdmaster.library has a very flexible interface, offers the
   possibility to decrunch already loaded program segments, supports
   external decrunchers, is able to unlink 4EB9/4EF9- and text-linked
   files and can scan for crunched data in any memory area.
   New crunchers, linkers, crunched files, linked files, comments and
   any other new stuff is welcome.


                          About reqtools.library

                       Amiga Shared, Runtime library
                Copyright Nico François and Magnus Holmgren

   [Information from ReqTools Guide]
   reqtools.library is a standard Amiga shared, runtime library. The
   purpose of ReqTools is to make it a lot quicker and easier to build
   standard requesters into your programs. ReqTools is designed with
   Commodore's style guidelines in mind, all requesters have the
   look-and-feel of AmigaDOS Release 2.

   If you use ReqTools in your programs you do not have to worry about
   requesters too much. You'll have a lot more time to concentrate on
   the really important stuff your program does.

   The library has been inspired by req.library (by Colin Fox & Bruce
   Dawson) and Commodore's own asl.library. You will find it shares a
   lot of the features with these two libraries, while it has some
   additional ones as well. While asl.library was great in look-and-feel
   I [Nico François] felt it lacked quite a bit in the power department.
   This power is mostly available in req.library, but this doesn't fit
   in too well with AmigaDOS Release 2. So the idea for a new requester
   library was born.

   ReqTools features the following requesters: a query requester, a
   string requester, a number requester, a file requester, a font
   requester, a palette requester and new in release 2.0 of ReqTools a
   volume requester and a screen mode requester.
