Freeware typing tutor KP for you and your friends or student.

To everyone who can not type:
You may not bother to learn to type. Maybe you enjoy sitting upon your computer and 
typing. Maybe you like to do much eyes and neck exercises to keep fit your eyes and 
neck. How many time have you spend on typing your document? How many time will 
you spend more? No time to learn to type, but much time to type slowly, this is the 
philosopher of fact.

Here is a typing tutor KP available to learner and teacher. Free, from ftp site.
KP is a typing tutor for DOS. KP have its own style to help you or your student to 
learn to type. It contains a virtual keyboard and palms to help you not look at the 
keyboard while you learn. And you have more freedom to choose the example text. 
Now you just can go to that ftp site, and get it.
It is a free ware, no charge for any individual user, just get it free, keep it free, 
distribute to other individual users free. KP was written by me.

Just get it for yourself or your friends.

if 'mget' command don't work in your network, try 'get'. Remember to
use 'bin' command first before you get non-ascii files.

please get all 5 KP files, and then you could run kp for a while then
read user manual 'readme.kp' for bother student and teacher.

KP is freeware on typing tutor. It is not a replacement of other powerful
or popular typing tutor, but may be another choice that give you another feeling,
It is my pleasure to see you to learn to type and later type quickly
and save your time.
