QPAC1 consists of several small tools for the pointer environment, namely Alarm, Calculator, Calendar, SysMon and Typer.
The most useful of these tools and the only one still in use by me is SysMon, which monitors the memory heap and loudly signals when something is wrong with the system.
QPAC2 is an essential utility for every QL system, especially the button frame and file manager are a must-have.
