QRS3226 "The Farmer Took Another Load Away!"
By Johnny Lite

One MMDer,w George Bogatko, raved about it, so I downloaded W. Stahnke's
QRS file but cannot open files with suffixes: .ANN, .WEB--?-- why not
post just a standard .mid file?

Thanks, Johnny

 [ This question has come up before but I can't seem to find the
 [ "canned text" for this question.  Basically the work Wayne Stahnke
 [ has done is to produce "Archive Quality" transcriptions of the
 [ roll.  The file format is a proprietary one which represents
 [ accurately what must be sent to the perforator to create a new
 [ roll.  A special program called "View" is available directly
 [ from Wayne Stahnke for manipulating these files.  He's been
 [ quite generous in the past in providing copies of the program
 [ to use.  For those interesting in programming he has also
 [ been willing to provide file specifications so that other
 [ programmers can read and write files in the same format.  The
 [ sharing of Wayne's file format specifications _SHOULD_ be of interest
 [ to anyone contemplating building a scanner or perforator.
 [ In short, Johnny, you (and others who are interested in "view"
 [ should write to Wayne and ask him to send you a copy of his
 [ program.  He'll send it to you via e-mail attachment.
 [ Wayne's address is:
 [ (As always, drop the .geentroep when using the address).
