    That is almost certain to happen.

    Of course, I haven't actually tried Bob's software.
    My comments are based on being a software developer who figured out the principles behind Bob's software from his list of features, from Knight's comments, and from using a different software program Bob wrote years ago that appears related to this one.

    If I have misrepresented Display.exe in any way, then I am sure Bob will let us know.
    What is the program he wrote years ago?

    After thinking about the program Display.exe, I think I just might have had an epiphany as to what this program is. I'll keep it quiet until Bob explains further. If I am wrong...so be it.

    Why keep quiet? If you think you understand it, please share.

    If Bob ever attempts to make money from his program, I can say that I had the idea first and sue. It's all about the money.

    No. You can't.

    Now, will you explain your recent epiphany or not?

    I have shared.
    I have said more about how the program works than anyone else on this thread, with the exception of Bob.

    fool's take;
    Bob has an Evolve exe. program that generates random letter combinations in an attempt to get the entire english alphabet in correct order in one roll of the dice.
    It was like a screen saver that you could download and it kept track of the number of attempts and relayed that info back to wherever and Bob knew how many total attempts had been made and if I recall correctly there was a prize if you computer was the one that got the whole alphabet in order in one try.

    So, based on what GO has revealed I would guess that Bob posits that his program will eventually write everything that could be written so in that sense it will "display" every page of everything in every way.

    This concept is not new.

    Sounds like you are trying to make Mr. Radish peeved and frustrated.

    Bob did say it was written in 2001.

    I thought about the Evolve program too. However, it doesn't explain Feature #3:

    Software Feature #3: 12-7-09 My program also displays published texts, translated into other languages.
    Evolve only dealt with the English language and not for example Hebrew or Sanskrit.
