Re: other files (of text) via the listserver

   [ For seasonal holiday reading you might to check the
    archives of the XYwrite for old clues, tips, debates
    and general trivia. The list below are text files,
   not program files.
   The latter, program files, you get via ftp from the
   other FTP address as Sivin has given you.
   The files below are archived mail files that come to you
   as e-mail. See the list server commands below the list
   for some instructions.
   You don't mail to the XY list but to the separate robot
   that handles the list

           or Mjd@xxxxxxxx

      in the message, (subjects are ignored), you
            get xywrite catalog.doc
      for example.
      Wait a few seconds and your mail will have
      the file retrieved.
      The command get etc is put on the first line of the
      message. You may want a second line of 'end'
      if your mailer puts a signature on the message.
   Obviously you are not going to read all the messages in the
   archive but are going to skim the messages
   for such lines as "Subject:" then clip and cut and paste
   relevant details.
