FCTR(tm) FCTRFTxt.DLL (v1.0)
What is it?

FCTR(tm) FCTRFTxt.DLL is a nifty little DLL written in Visual C++ Win32 platforms. It's been tested under Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 6a). This DLL can be used to format text for database entry, as well as extracting time and date information from text.

"So what?" you ask?

Well, for starters, FCTR(tm) FCTRFTxt.DLL will automatically expand abbreviations, such as "pob" to "P.O. Box". It will also capitalize the first letter of each word, for specific types of styles. It will automatically format various time and date styles, as well as return the numeric values of the time/date text. It is even capable of performing time/date math, so you can create a Quickbooks-like date field that allows the "-" and "+" keys to change the date.

How much does it cost?

It doesn't cost anything to try, but if you use this DLL in a program, please send US $25.00 to the address below. Registered users don't timeout after five minutes of program use.
