PLEASE FOR THE SANITY OF YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS update and revise this guide to include the newest and simplest methods! In order that is simple to follow step by step. It is SO HARD to follow this guide as things are worded strangely, sometimes misspelled or misworded which makes it literally impossible to follow step by step.. it's like trying to decode what you are trying to say at times. For example, getting the Google maps to work on the latest patched app, you say "create a FILE named usegooglemaps. HOW DO YOU CREATE A FILE?! WHAT KIND OF FILE? do you mean folder? And if so WHAT FILE do I put in the folder?! If I told you to CREATE A FILE and name it something, would you have ANY clue what that actually meant? There are so many kinds of "files" if I was told what kind of file, maybe I would have somewhere to start in figuring out what you're trying to say but you just say create a file. I'm soooo confused, and by NO MEANS am I new to computers. Very well trained. Enough to know that you cannot simply be told to create a file, without being told what kind of file, and proceed successfully. And after reading the overall guide following step by step as much as possible, I somehow find a newer updated version of certain steps somewhere else on the website scattered into places that you would never expect to look and I can't tell what's new and what's old
Creating a file is like creating a place-marker with a name. The type of file is only defined by its contents. A typical Unix command would be "touch xyz" which would create a file called "xyz" with no contents.
So, using a Windows box you can browse to a directory, right-click and choose "new text document" and edit the resulting file name to make sure it doesn't retain the ".txt" extension. Windows will warn about this, just click "Yes".
When you need to add content (and in this case it would be ASCII text), double click on the file and then select the program you want to use to open it (e.g. Notepad).
