* 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 proprietary
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

You can always find the most recent version of this list of GNU FTP sites at

* 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

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.  Binaries for gzip can be downloaded from

Descriptions of GNU software are available at
 and in the Free Software Directory at

* Alternative Internet FTP Sources

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

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

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.

* GNU Software for VMS

        - ftp.vms.stacken.kth.se/MIRRORS/GNU-VMS/- lots of GNU ports to VMS,
including Emacs 19, GCC, Bison, Make, RCS.

* 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.  The Foundation continues to improve GNU programs
and encourage the writing of new free software to enhance GNU/Linux
and GNU/Hurd systems.  For more information on GNU and the Foundation,
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.  You can
also purchase printed manuals, reference cards, t-shirts, and other
items.  See our online ordering form at http://order.fsf.org for
