|Linux Frequently Asked Questions with Answers|
A: Please send comments to the maintainer: David Merrill.
Contributions to the FAQ may be in any format. Comments and corrections are gratefully received.
If you wish to refer to a question in the FAQ, it's better to do so by the question heading instead of number. The question numbers are generated automagically, and I don't see them in the source file.
I prefer comments in English to patch files. Context diff is not my first language.
A: This document is available as an ASCII text file, an HTML World Wide Web page, Postscript, PDF, Plucker, and as a USENET news posting.
HTML is generated from SGML source using the Jade DSSSL interpreter by James Clark. Text versions are generated using lynx. These programs are found in most Linux distributions.
The Usenet version is posted regularly to news.answers, comp.answers, and comp.os.linux.misc. It is archived at ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/comp/os/linux/misc.
The latest versions are available from the Linux Documentation Project at http://www.linuxdoc.org/.
