Problematic Dink Diz Pro can be used to create Dmod.diz files easily. It asks these things and then it puts them in the file: name of D-Mod, version, the day, month and year of the D-Mod, name of author, author's email, author's website and a D-Mod description. When it creates the Dmod.diz file, it also adds things like 'Visit:' and 'Copyright'.

I opened the file in an editor and I saw this text on the second line:

Info on Problematic Dink Diz Pro send internet email to or with the title -dmod editorclan: 4

You can't see this text because the frontend doesn't display a long line like that. When you create a dmod.diz file with Problematic Dink Diz Pro, it also creates a file named Dmod.dat. The program uses it to create the final dmod.diz file because it contains all the data you entered + EOF (End Of File) and the name of the author of this program. Jeremiah placed his name everywhere in this program.
Now the program works fine but nothing more than that. You have to press enter twice after entering data, once is good enough for me . This also results that you can enter data one line under the line it asks you but this isn't added to the dmod.diz file. The program also doesn't have any checking, you can enter whatever you like (like text when it asks for a day, month or year) so it expects you to enter the correct data when it asks you. I don't think that people who use this program are stupid but checking what the user entered could help him/her even more.

Overall: Creating a dmod.diz file can be easier with this program but a normal texteditor is also good enough. A texteditor has advantages because with Problematic Dink Diz Pro you can't use enter when entering the description. The creator of this program has named it Pro but I don't see why, all it does is creating a dmod.diz - I know, that's what it should do but hey, for a Pro program you need to do more!. And why he named it Problematic...I can't tell ya, I haven't found any bugs or problems, but oh well, creating a dmod.diz ain't problematic anymore, maybe that's what Jeremiah means . Final words here: after using this program, I saw a file named diz.html on my desktop: Thank you for using Problematic Dink Diz Pro. You may send a donation to me if you like the program. Then you can enter if you like to give a donation of 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 dollars - ahem, well, guess I don't need to tell you what I did...
