This file is just a placeholder; all the documentation is now in
HTML in the html directory. To view the documentation point your
favorite WWW viewer at html/index.html;
If you don't have an HTML viewer then you can read the HTML source
or fetch a PostScript version of this documentation from the directory
If you can't hack either of these options then basically what you
want to do is:
# make install
More information, email contacts, and mailing list information can be
