Submit your program updates in PAD files to participating sites without the need of filling in lengthy forms. The finished PAD is in a predetermined XML format which can be read by participating software sites automatically updating their archives.
PAD (Portable Application Description) files are the brain child of the Association of Shareware Professionals ("ASP"). They allow software developers to submit program information to participating sites without the need of filling in lengthy forms.
The finished PAD file is in a predetermined XML format which can be easily read by those software sites. They can then automatically poll your PAD to keep their archives always up to date. This text was prepared using PadEditor by BB then uploaded to this site. You can be confident that this PAD enabled software site is always up to date with the latest titles, since PAD files can be polled on the day they are changed.
PadEditor by BB is a tiny application which produces fully functional ver 2.0 PAD files. Unlike most other PAD creation applications, it is written in Visual Basic 6 with no bloated redundant code, to keep its size small. The finished package is a tiny 107kb, which also includes the installer, uninstaller and the help files.
