Also, they are of course always out of date compared with the online documents
which are continuously being updated.

your FTP session may look something like:
> login: anonymous

> cd /pub/www/doc
> get line-mode-guide.txt
Each manual is available in Postscript (filename suffix .ps),
plain ASCII text (.txt) and sometimes TeX (.tex).

OUT OF PRINTIf you want technical details,
we recommend browsing the web,
for the latest versions of all our thoughts we have had time to type in.
