In todays vague times of «common» unlimited broadband Internet connection (which is not so common, really) and «modern cool» web-services it is thought that one doesnt have to store on ones computer information one can find on web. People with such thoughts typically dont take into account the amount of time they waste when to find a byte of frequently-used data they have to do something like: «recall the info service URL, type it, enter the search request in the search field, narrow search results, and then find data you need on a 7-screen wide webpage». There are many cases where having a local database with the «common information» is much more effective, enjoyable and less time-wasting. One of such cases is when you often (or even sometimes) need formal country-related information; the WISE solution for this case is the Country Codes software.
What Country Codes can tell you? Oh, its a real fount of useful information (especially taking into account its capability of running portable, from a USB stick, so you will always have this information with you). For each country in the world, the software will tell you (in only one click for each country) all ISO and related codes for country itself, its language, its currency; phone codes for the country and its prominent cities; time zones, locations, and more, and more Country Codes also has very convenient interface options for hiding and showing its window, and for copying necessary information to clipboard.
