Source code is at <ftp://cs-ftp.bu.edu/pub/listserv/current_version.Z>

This is the final no-charge version of ListProc.  It will not be enhanced
except for bug fixes.  Read the section above on "Do you need to modify the
MLM's source code?"  for notes on restrictions associated with this package.

Some background relating to ListProc's name: you may see references to this
product as "Unix Listserv."  Be careful, and try to clarify if the "listserv"
in question is the Eric Thomas/"BITNET" version, or really ListProc.  When
Anastasios Kotsikonas ("Tasos") first wrote ListProc at Boston U., it was
called "Unix LISTSERV," and it included a note in the documentation that some
read to mean it was related to the Eric Thomas software.  This made Eric mad,
and he complained for years that these "Unix Listserv" users thought he
sanctioned the software or that it was a port of his VM/CMS LISTSERV.  When
he formed L-Soft and took LISTSERV commercial, lost sales became part of the
issue.  The situation finally escalated to the point where, voila! ListProc
was born :-).  ListProc versions below 6.0c *were* called "Unix LISTSERV" or
"Unix Listserver," but they're still ListProc, and you should call them
ListProc.  It's less confusing that way.

To discuss ListProc 6.0c, subscribe to unix-listproc@avs.com by writing "sub
unix-listproc Your Name" in the body of a message to listproc@avs.com.  This
is also ListProc 6.0c's technical-support list; most support is provided by
users, although Tasos also reads the list regularly and sometimes comments.
