Shareware is a distribution system for computer software based
on the "try-before-you-buy" principle. If you like a program,
then you make a registration payment to the author. If you
don't want the program after trying it out, then you delete it
or pass it along to a friend.

Shareware is NOT freeware. To legally use a program that
has been distributed as Shareware you MUST pay for it.
Registration usually gives the user extra benefits such as
the latest version on disk, a printed manual, technical
support, upgrade discounts and enhanced program functionality.
