Charon Cart 3 Manual Support

The popular Charon Cart extension has been rewritten and released  as Charon Cart 3. In this realease I have fixed a number of bugs and improved the generated code. It now uses VB Script classes and XML in the engine. The behaviors allow developers to e-commerce enable their websites easily.

The support material is a zip file that contains help files, a database and ASP files for a completed Ecommerce store. This is included with the downloaded extension.
