The solution is simple, just follow these steps:
D:\CDROM\TOOLS\WINDOWS\directory on the Catastrophism! CD-Rom disc (where D:\ is the location of your CD-Rom drive) to your temporary directory on your hard drive.
dblist.cplfrom the directory
D:\CDROM\TOOLS\CONFIG\CPL\directory, to your temporary directory on your hard drive, created above.
When using the PLWeb-CD Full Text Search software, the following searches are different to that described:
Search results are highlighted in bold text. If your browser supports Cascading Style Sheets, you can make them brighter (red on a yellow background as shown here) as follows. Locate the file
plweb-cd.ini in your PLWeb-CD directory, edit it in a text editor, and in the section
[Interface], add the two lines (without line numbers):
- HitBeginTag = <font STYLE="color: red; background-color: yellow"><b>
- HitEndTag = </b></font>
The Simple Text search software works by following the hyperlinks on a particular page. For a particular publication, this is the page of "List of Issues" of that publication (ie. see the example for Aeon here). However, the late addition of the hyperlink "[Back to Home Page]" means that the Search software, instead of searching from publication to publication, is redirected to the Home page where it begins to search the whole disk. As a result, only the option for "All Journals" works reliably.
