Message 1: LIST UPDATE: NAME CHANGE: OS-2 becomes OS2

Date: Wed, 18 Sep 1991 13:45:02 CDT
From: Karel Van der Haegen <FDBAQ13BLEKUL11.BITNET>
Subject: LIST UPDATE: NAME CHANGE: OS-2 becomes OS2
The existing list OS-2BLEKUL11
 OS-2cc1.kuleuven.ac.be
will become:
OS2BLEKUL11
OS2cc1.kuleuven.ac.be
OS2 on LISTSERVBLEKUL11
 or LISTSERVcc1.kuleuven.ac.be
 The OS2 list was formed to provide a forum for discussions of
 the operating systems OS/2 for IBM Compatible PCs. Possible
 discussion topics include but are not limited to:
 The base operating system in all its flavors and versions
 Hardware configurations and possible conflicts
 Use with software packages, existing OS/2 softwares
 Communications: LAN, SNA, ASYNC, TCP/IP, ...
 Database Manager and other SQL Servers
 Device drivers
 OS2 is a weekly digest, called the OS/2 Discussion Forum, with roughly
 1000 lines of Q&A each week, including articles picked up at the various
 comp.os.os2.* newsgroups on USEnet. OS-2 had up to now 700+ direct
 subscriptions, besides several redistribution points and NETNEWS gateways.
 OS2 always was a moderated list with archives. Archives of OS2 (before
 called OS-2), even the older ones (before today) with the old OS-2 name,
 will be stored in the OS2 FILELIST. To receive a list of files
 send the command INDEX OS2 to LISTSERVcc1.kuleuven.ac.be a.k.a.
 LISTSERVBLEKUL11 (a LISTEARN file distribution vm machine)
 To subscribe to OS2, send the following command to LISTSERVBLEKUL11 or
 LISTSERVcc1.kuleuven.ac.be via mail text or interactive message:
 SUBSCRIBE OS2 Your_full_name
 where "Your_full_name" is your name. For example:
 SUBSCRIBE OS2 Bill Gates
 Moderator: OS2MODcc1.kuleuven.ac.be

Message 3: Interlinear Text Processor on SIMTEL

Date: Wed, 18 Sep 91 9:53:49 CDT
From: Evan Antworth <evanutafll.uta.edu>
Subject: Interlinear Text Processor on SIMTEL
I have uploaded the following file to the LINGUISTICS directory on SIMTEL20:
pd1:<msdos.linguistics>
IT11C.ZIP Interlinear Text Processor, version 1.1c
IT ('eye-tee') is a software package for producing annotated
interlinear texts. It performs two main tasks: (1) it maintains the
vertical alignment of the interlinear annotations, and (2) it stores
all word and morpheme annotations in a lexical database thus
enabling semi-automatic glossing. IT supports up to 14 levels of
aligning text annotations and up to 8 different freeform (nonaligning)
annotations. The interlinear text file produced by IT is a plain ASCII
text file that is accessible to other text-processing software. This
version of IT is offered as 'freeware'.
How to get IT
-------------
The file IT11C.ZIP is available via anonymous FTP from
WSMR-SIMTEL20.ARMY.MIL [192.88.110.20]. It is also available from
various mirror sites such as wuarchive.wustl.edu.
SIMTEL20 can also be accessed using LISTSERV commands from BITNET via
LISTSERVNDSUVM1, LISTSERVRPIECS and in Europe from EARN TRICKLE servers
(for example, FRMOP11 in France).
If you do not have FTP access to SIMTEL20, files may be ordered by
e-mail from LISTSERVVM1.NODAK.EDU or LISTSERVVM.ECS.RPI.EDU.
 If you are on BITNET: LISTSERVNDSUVM1
 LISTSERVRPIECS
 If your mailer knows domains: listservvm1.nodak.edu
				 listservvm.ecs.rpi.edu
Send this command as the only line of the message body:
 /PDGET MAIL PD1:<MSDOS.LINGUISTICS>IT11C.ZIP UUENCODE
If you have xxdecode, you may wish to specify XXENCODE instead of
UUENCODE to avoid character translation problems.
