"My Amiga is so stable, I had to write a program to make it crash..."


Crash, as the name implies is a program designed to make your computer crash.
But it does this safely, so that you can open the Grim Reaper and/or Alert
requesters on purpose, without trashing the system nor having to reboot.
It does what LawBreaker used to do on the 68k and then some.

The main reason why I wrote it was to make it easier to test the requesters
at various resolutions without having to cause a real crash.

It allows creating generic or custom alerts (Guru), and Grim Reapers.
The Reaper is for real but is triggered by a call which should be harmless.



At least one of these two is required:

R=REAPER/S    Causes the Grim Reaper requester to appear 
G=GURU/S      Causes a Guru (blinking rectangular box) to appear

These are for the GURU only and are optional:

D=DEADEND/S   Show Red alert instead of Amber (recoverable) alert
M=MESSAGE/M   Display custom one-liner text message
X=XPOS/K/N    X (horizontal) position of custom message
Y=YPOS/K/N    Y (vertical) position of custom message
H=HEIGHT/K/N  Height of Guru box
T=TIMEOUT/K/N Timeout (in video frames) for auto-cancelling the Guru


2.0 (11.06.2008)
- Moved v1.0 code to Here_Comes_The_Reaper() function
- Added ReadArgs template
- Added "Guru" and args for user-defined alerts

1.0 (2006)
- Just an OS4-friendly replacement for 68k LawBreaker v37
