Software package set to tackle year 2000 problem
Span 2000, a new software package which tackles the year 2000 problem,
has been launched in South Africa by Seymour Phillips and Associates
The program, which runs on any IBM-compatible PC running MS-DOS,
checks the BIOS and real-time clock of the PC to test for millennium
for leap year adjustment.
If these aspects of the PC are non-compliant, an on-screen prompt asks the
user to run installation.
Upon doing this, Span 2000 adjusts the PC to be millennium compliant.
Span 2000 also checks all programs run on the PC, and indicates if
programs are not
adapted for the millennium rollover.
