+How to get GNU Software by Internet FTP or by UUCP.  Last updated 1999-01-20
+
+* Please send improvements to this file to gnu@gnu.org.
+
+* No Warranties
+
+We distribute software in the hope that it will be useful, but without
+any warranty.  No author or distributor of this software accepts
+responsibility to anyone for the consequences of using it or for
+whether it serves any particular purpose or works at all, unless he
+says so in writing. This is exactly the same warranty that the commercial
+software companies offer: None. If the distribution is incomplete or the
+media fails, you can always download a replacement from any of the GNU
+mirrors, free of charge.
+
+* Updates
+
+A possibly more up-to-date list of GNU FTP sites is at
+        http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html
+
+* How to FTP
+
+Use the ftp program on your system (ask locally if you can't find it)
+to connect to the host you are ftping from.  Unless indicated
+otherwise, login in as user "anonymous", with password: "your e-mail
+address" and set "binary" mode (to transfer all eight bits in each
+byte).
+
+ALWAYS USE BINARY/IMAGE MODE TO TRANSFER THESE FILES!
+Text mode does not work for tar files or compressed files.
+
+* GNU Software and How To FTP It
+
+GNU software is available on ftp.gnu.org under the directory /gnu.
+diff files to convert between versions exist for some of these
+programs.  Some programs have misc support files as well.  Have a look
+on ftp.gnu.org to see which ones.  In most cases, the tar or diff
+files are compressed with the `gzip' program; this is indicated with
+the .gz suffix.
+
+Descriptions of GNU software are available at
+	http://www.gnu.org/software/software.html
+
+* Alternative Internet FTP Sources
+
+Please do NOT use a site outside your country, until you have checked
+all sites inside your country, and then your continent.  Trans-ocean
+TCP/IP links are very expensive and usually very low speed.
+
+The canonical GNU ftp site is located at ftp.gnu.org/gnu.
+You should probably use one of the many mirrors of that site - the
+mirrors will be less busy, and you can find one closer to your site.

+
+* How to FTP GNU Emacs
+
+Emacs is in the directory /gnu/emacs on ftp.gnu.org.  The emacs
+distribution itself has a filename in the form emacs-M.N.tar.gz, where
+M and N stand for the version numbers; the Emacs Lisp Reference Manual
+is in a separate file, named elisp-manual-NN.tar.gz.
+
+* Scheme and How to FTP It
+
+The latest distribution version of C Scheme is available via anonymous FTP
+from swiss-ftp.ai.mit.edu in /pub/scheme-X.X/ (where X.X is some version
+number).
+
+Read the files INSTALL and README in the top level C Scheme directory.
+
+* TeX and How to Obtain It
+
+We don't distribute TeX now, but it is free software.
+
+TeX is a document formatter that is used, among other things, by the FSF
+for all its documentation.  You will need it if you want to make printed
+manuals.
+
+TeX is freely redistributable.  You can get it by ftp, tape, or CD/ROM.
+
+** For FTP instructions, retrieve the file
+ftp.cs.umb.edu/pub/tex/unixtex.ftp. (We don't include it here because it
+changes relatively frequently.  Sorry.)
+
+** A minimal TeX collection (enough to process Texinfo files, anyway)
+is included on the GNU source CD-ROM.  See the file ORDERS in this
+directory for more information.
+
+* VMS FTP sites with GNU Software
+You can anonymously ftp a VMS version of GNU emacs from:
+	- ftp.vms.stacken.kth.se:[.GNU-VMS] - GNU Emacs and some other VMS
+ports (and some VMS binaries) of GNU software
+	- mango.rsmas.miami.edu has a VMS version of the GCC/G++ compiler.
+Contact angel@flipper.miami.edu (angel li) for details.
+	- RIGEL.EFD.LTH.SE [130.235.48.3] - GNU Emacs
+
+* Getting GNU software in Great Britain
+
+jpo@cs.nott.ac.uk is willing to distribute those GNU sources he has
+available.  The smaller items are available from the info-server (send
+to info-server@cs.nott.ac.uk); the larger items by negotiation.  Due to
+communication costs this service is only available within the UK.
+
+BattenIG@computer-science.birmingham.ac.uk (aka
+I.G.Batten@fulcrum.bt.co.uk) is also willing to distribute those GNU
+sources he has.
+
+wizards@doc.ic.ac.uk is willing to distribute those GNU sources they have
+along with most other freely distributable software.  The SunSITE archive
+on SunSITE.doc.ic.ac.uk (193.63.255.4) is available via ftp, http, fsp,
+gopher, NFS and Lanmanger over IP (SMB), and telnet.
+
+UK sites with just anonymous FTP access are in the above list.
+
+* Getting GNU software via UUCP
+
+OSU is distributing via UUCP: most GNU software, MIT C Scheme,
+Compress, News, RN, NNTP, Patch, some Appletalk stuff, some of the
+Internet Requests For Comment (RFC) et al..  See their periodic
+postings on the Usenet newsgroup comp.sources.d for informational
+updates.  Current details from <staff@cis.ohio-state.edu> or
+<...!osu-cis!staff>.
+
+Information on how to uucp some GNU programs is available via
+electronic mail from: uunet!hutch!barber, hqda-ai!merlin, acornrc!bob,
+hao!scicom!qetzal!upba!ugn!nepa!denny, ncar!noao!asuvax!hrc!dan,
+bigtex!james (aka james@bigtex.cactus.org), oli-stl!root,
+src@contrib.de (Germany), toku@dit.co.jp (Japan) and info@ftp.uu.net.
+
+* If You Like The Software
+
+If you like the software developed and distributed by the Free
+Software Foundation, please express your satisfaction with a donation.
+Your donations will help to support the Foundation and make our future
+efforts successful, including a complete development and operating
+system, called GNU (Gnu's Not Unix), which will run Unix user
+programs.  For more information on GNU and the Foundation, contact us
+at the above address, or see our web site at http://www.gnu.org.
+
+Ordering a GNU Source Code CD-ROM or Source Code CD-ROM Subscription
+is a good way for your organization to help support our work.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
