This DOS-based freeware application offers an odd selection of functions. Eternity Utility Software needs no installation as it opens a simple DOS menu. There isn't a Help file or wizard available, but even novice users should find the basic functions easy to understand.
At startup, Eternity displays a simple five-option menu. All options are easily selected with a single number key press. One option simply autoupdates the software. Another opens a DOS prompt window. The least useful function displays simple ASCII images. The only option our testers thought could be useful is a simple journal function. It stores multiple journals and their entries in a subdirectory. The files are in ASCII text with no encryption or password protection.
Programmers can add extensions to Eternity or easily alter the software itself. Nevertheless, with such basic or frivolous functions most users will find little use for this software.
Eternity is a DOS based utility software designed to be open source. It supports extensions and includes an automatic update tool to help keep the software up to date. The Extensions manager does not have to be re-programmed for new extensions, it supports any in its directory. I have had rave reviews so far for this software, and its potential is unlimited. It's mission is to provide an easy way for common tasks, and services to be performed.
Also, an improved update program will be included, and new extensions manager. We encourage people to write extensions. Extensions are essentially .bat files renamed to .QEP. Version 1.9 feature updates, better interface (no glitches), new extensions manager, ability to launch java extensions.
