MPI Help and Information

MPI About box

ModuloPI or MPI is an alternative Runtime Editor(RTE) for SuperCard. MPI is the creation of Stéphane Leys.

These pages are my attempt to create some online help for MPI, at the moment Jan 2005) the pages are in progress, and will probably continue to be so for a while.

I am a enthuastic user of SuperCard and MPI, but the information on these pages is limited by my knowledge and skill (There will probably be a few typos too), please let me know if there are any mistakes, broken links or ommisions and I'll try to fix them. John
