Important: Microsoft does not offer this kit as part of our product   line. Microsoft will not provide technical or any other type of support   for this kit.The kit contains the following components: - Microsoft License Agreement (Sdklics.doc) IMPORTANT-- READ CAREFULLY   BEFORE USING SOFTWARE PACKET(S). By using the software in this kit, you   indicate your acceptance of the Microsoft License Agreement included   with it. - Rich Text Format (RTF) Specification (GC0165.doc) The RTF Specification   document is the core material you need to write external file   converters. This document describes RTF syntax, the semantics of an RTF   reader, and the contents of an RTF file, including definitions of RTF   keywords. - Software Development Kit for External Text File Converters and Win32(R)   Software Development Kit for External Text File Converters documents   (Sdk.doc and Sdk32.doc) These documents provide specifications and   examples of how an external text file converter works with Word and   Windows. Sdk.doc details the creation of a 16-bit converter, and   Sdk32.doc details the creation of a 32-bit converter. Header files   (Codepage.h, Convapi.h, Converr.h, Lang.h, Rtfdefs.h) These header files   define all the structures, types, and function entry points documented   in the SDK documents. Any converter or converter client should include   the Convapi.h header, which itself includes Converr.h. The other files   (Codepage.h, Lang.h, and Rtfdefs.h) contain definitions from the RTF   specification. You can use the definitions found in these files to   interpret the arguments for RTF keywords. - Sample converter sources (See the Sampcnv and Rtfread subdirectories)   Refer to these sources to see an example of a simple text converter. The   sample converter sources are intended for use with Microsoft C version   8.0. The Makefile file contains instructions for building the sample   converter. The sample converter reads and writes simple text files, is   auto-installed into Word, and contains the minimal code needed to write   a fully functional converter. It implements the InitConverter,   IsFormatCorrect, ForeignToRtf, RtfToForeign, and GetIniEntry application   program interface (API) functions. The Rtfread directory contains source   code for a skeleton RTF reader. The Readme.txt file in each directory   elaborates on how to build the samples on 16-bit and 32-bit Windows.                                  #######The disk and software contained on it, including any accompanyingdocumentation (the "Software"), are provided to you at no additionalcharge.
