[ 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
in the message, (subjects are ignored), you
get xywrite catalog.doc
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
