Asalamulaikum,

There has been some interest in accessing Caltech's ftp site, but
some of you have found it hard to do.  This is a short primer on the
site and how to access it.

	     C A L T E C H    M U S L I M S    S T U D E N T S 
  	     =================================================	

		           Dated: January 30, 1994 

	Caltech Muslim Students Group offers number of files on its
	ftp server. These files have been extracted from different
	forums and are in compressed (in UNIX) format.

	     Asim Mughal  		(mughal@alumni.Caltech.Edu)
             Asif Khalak                (asif@romeo.caltech.edu)
____________________________________________________________________________

Primer on getting documents from the Caltech MSA ftp site.

1. To access the site, you should log into a UNIX account.  If you
don't have one, get one.  The reason that UNIX is preferred is that it
is currently the operating system of choice in academic spheres which
are capable of using ftp.  The other reason that UNIX is used is that
efficient data compression routines are standardly packaged with UNIX,
and we can thus pack more information into the limited space that we
are allocated for the site.

2.  The next step is to run ftp (stands for File Transfer
Protocol). The information is stored at punisher.caltech.edu (this is
called the location of the site).  To do this type the following at
the command prompt:

% ftp punisher.caltech.edu

Alternatively, you can start up ftp and go to punisher within it, like
this:

% ftp
ftp> open punisher.caltech.edu

Note that the "ftp>" is a prompt provided by the ftp program.

3. At this point ftp will ask for a name.  The information is public,
so you'll want to use anonymous ftp.  That is, at the name prompt,
type anonymous.

Name: anonymous

4. Then ftp will say it's okay, but you need to send identification as
the password.  This means that when it asks you for a password, you
type in your e-mail address.

Password: <your address>         (for example: mughal@caltech.edu)

5. Now you are in the Caltech system.  The next step is to get to the
Muslim Student's association directory.  The full name of the
directory is /home/ftp/pub/calmsa.  However, you are placed into the
/home/ftp directory when you get in.  To get to the msa directory,
then, type:

ftp> cd pub/calmsa

Note, the on-line Quran translation is located in a subdirectory of
the calmsa directory named Quran.  To get into it, use "cd Quran".
Also, you can use the command "ls", as in UNIX, to list the files in
the directory that you are currently in.

6. At this point you can retrieve files.  Things go more quickly if
you are in binary mode.  Thus, you tell ftp,

ftp> mode bin

7. To get a file, you simply use the command get.  For example,

ftp> get thefileIwant.Z

A list of files with brief descriptions is located in the file README.
It is NOT compressed, so you can simply read it.

8. Notice that the file from get has a .Z extension.  This is because
it is compressed.  To uncompress it, you need to get out of ftp.  The
command is "bye".  At the command line, the command to uncompress,
surprisingly enough, is "uncompress"

ftp> bye
% uncompress thefileIwant

9. Now you can print the file, more it, whatever...

Subject: 12) Format of IINN Newsletters/Digests


    Assalamo Alaykum: (Greetings)

    Due to our increased contributor resources  and automated generation of
    Newsletter, you are experiencing  increased  volume  in our Newsletters.
    Under these  circumstances, you  might  wish  to  read  portions of our
    Newsletters. This communique is to help you in doing so. 

    First of all, let me explain  the  order  in  which  the Newsletter will
    always be prepared. Following the header, there might be a short special
    Greetings. This will be followed by the `Contents' section. This section
    contains all the items that are to appear after it. They appear in order
    as following: 


         1. Quran 
         2. Hadith 
         3. Editorial 
         4. News 
         5. Articles 
         6. Announcements 
         7. Letters to the Editor 


    All of them might not neccessarily appear in every issue. However, these
    sections will be marked by the above title and followed by dots `.' . 

    All the items that appear in the `Contents'  section will be preceded by
    exactly a line as appeared in the `Contents'  section. This gives a very
    important edge to the reader. The reader may chose the entire line as it
    appears in the `Contents' section or  even a part of it, as a pattern to
    search in the rest of the  message.  Since  the  item is preceeded by an
    exactly same line, the pattern search  should find it. This will provide
    the reader with selective reading ability. 

    Examples on different platforms are provided below: 


    Unix:
    ____

        Once you are in the  Unix  mail  facility,  the default pager is
        more (1). You can define  other  pagers  like less (1) using the
        PAGER variable while  in  mail  utility  or  in  ~/.mailrc file.
        Please see the following for more information: 

        more (1), less (1), mail (1) 

        However, once you have  started  reading the Newsletter, you can
        page down to the `Contents' section. Select the article that you
        like. Now search for it by using the slash `/' command in `more'
        or `less' followed by the string that you want to search for. It
        will, of course be more  convenient  if you have a mouse to this
        for you. 


    Sunview:
    _______

        Using the  mailtool  Sun  utility  makes  it  very easy for this
        purpose. Select a line by quickly  clicking with the left button
        three times. You can also click the line with clicking with left
        button at the beginning of the line and middle button at the end
        of the line. Now press the  right  button anywhere in the window
        Newsletter is  displayed.  This  will  display  a menu. Move the
        pointer to the Fourth sub-menu: `Find' and keep moving it to the
        arrow at right. This will give you another menu.The second entry
        in this new menu is `Find  Selection'.  Take the pointer to this
        entry and release the right  mouse  button.  It will take you to
        that particular article. 



    You are welcome to add another  platform  to  this list. This might help
    other Muslimeen and Muslimaat. 

    The formatting software, Nebula, was written by IINN staff. 
     
    Jazakumullaho Khairan Katheeran!

    NOTES: 

    1. The Islamic calendar is lunar and  depends on the actual sightings of
    the new moon. Therefore the actual dates may differ by a day or two. The
    lunar year is about 354 days long. Days begin at sunset. 

    2. 'A.H.' stands for 'After  Hijrah.'  The Hijri calendar began with the
    migration of Prophet Muhammad (may  peace  and blessings be on him) from
    Makkah to Madinah. 

    3. Ramadan is the nineth month of the  Islamic calendar. It is the month
    of daily fasting from dawn to sunset. 

    4. Eidul-Fitr marks the end of  Ramadan  and  is a major holiday for all
    Muslims. 

    5. Hajj is the yearly  pilgrimage  to  Makkah.  It falls in the twelveth
    month of the Islamic calendar. Each  year about three million Muslims go
    to Saudi Arabia for Hajj. 

    6. Eidul-Adha is on the 10th day  of  the  12th Islamic month. It is the
    second major holiday. It is a  three-day  holiday.  Muslims all over the
    world hold special prayers  and  sacrifice  animals  to  commemorate the
    trial of Abraham in which he was asked to sacrifice his only son Ishmael
    for the sake of God. 

    7. 'Mawlud Al-Nabi' stands for the Birthday of Prophet Muhammad.

Subject: 14) Archived Publications (1993-Current)


    The  Publications  of   'Islamic   Information   &   News  Network'  are

    A file similar to the one below will be mailed back. Select the archived
    publication desired. To retrieve  a  copy  of  the archived publication,
    again write an email  message  to  "listserv@psuvm.psu.edu"   with   the
    following format for your text message: 


                              GET MUSLIMS LOGyymmx


				Note: yy == year (e.g. 94)
	      			      mm == month (e.g. 08 for August)
				      x is alphabet (a-f)
				      	a  == first week
