To send code directly on the mailing-list is not the usual policy. Only
code with some explanatory scope (1-5 rows) is tollerable, if
instructive and pedagogical. This had been, since its birthday, a list
devoted not to development, but humanism: languages, humor, italian wines
vs. german wines, etc, enclosed in a Linux-based frame.

Neverthless, tgz and patches can be usefully announced on the list
and sent to me in attachment. In my humble opinion, this is the right
thing, until subscribers do not like to change policy explicitily.


P.S. fdformat.exe do not work in my Win98 :-)

I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
