Maresware Software Is No Longer Available
As of early 2008 all Maresware is free. Just find a file and download it.
All Maresware is command line driven, and as such has gone out of style. However, the
very useful (for those who know how to type) programs are still available here. Just
check out the alpha indexes at the bottom of the page.
