The CompuShow Programs

The original CompuShow was released as ShareWare in July 1987, making its first appearance in the CompuServe "Picture Support" forum. Within weeks, fans distributed it to many other CompuServe forums, hundreds of bulletin board systems, other commercial information services, and over the Internet. Since the DOS program ("cshow.com", and later "cshow.exe") was started by typing the file name "cshow" at a DOS command prompt, CompuShow very quickly became known simply as "cshow". Over the years, the nickname stuck, and, to this day, we still receive phone calls that run something like this...

Hello, is this cshow?

This is Canyon State Systems. CompuShow is our program.

I have a question about your cshow version.

I'll be happy to answer your question. But, I really need to know which program we're talking about. What's the name of the program and which version do you have?

Gee, I don't know! I've always just called it "cshow". How do I find out?
