 It is impractical to attempt to list all relevant newsgroups here. The
 few that are listed are some of the older newsgroups. To find additional
 groups use your newsreader's newsgroup search facility.

 Caution: Some of these newsgroups have specialized charters; you'll
 probably get flamed (and deserve it) if you post to an inappropriate
 group. Most groups have FAQ lists that will tell you what's appropriate.
 Don't post a request for the FAQ list; instead, retrieve it yourself:
 see <Q:01.13> [Where are FAQ lists archived?]

 * The various misc.forsale.computers.* are where you post notices of
   equipment, software, or computer books that you want to sell. Please
   don't post or crosspost those notices to comp.os.msdos.programmer.

 * The various comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.* groups (formerly
   comp.windows.ms.programmer) are for articles specifict to the various
   Microsoft Windows platforms.

 * The various comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.* groups are for more
   hardware-oriented discussions of the machines that run DOS.

 * The various comp.lang.* groups for articles and questions on the
   programming languages. Caution: some groups welcome discussions that
   are operating-system dependent or vendor specific; others do not. For
   example, comp.lang.c is definitely _not_ for questions about
   programming DOS or PC system features, even if the programs are
   written in C.

 * comp.binaries.ibm.pc.wanted: AFTER you have looked in the other
   groups, this is the place to post a request for a particular binary
   program.

 * comp.archives.msdos.announce (moderated) explains how to use the
   archive sites, especially Garbo and SimTel, and lists files uploaded
   to them. Discussions belong in comp.archives.msdos.d, which replaced
   comp.binaries.ibm.pc.archives in December 1992.

 * comp.binaries.ibm.pc.d is for discussions about programs posted in
   comp.binaries.ibm.pc, and only those programs. This is a good place to
   report bugs in the programs, but not to ask where to find them (see
   cbip.wanted, above). comp.binaries.ibm.pc.d is NOT supposed to be a
   general PC discussion group.

 * comp.sources.misc: a moderated group for source code for many computer
   systems. It tends to get lots of Unix stuff, but you may also pick up
   some DOS-compatible code here.

 * alt.sources: an unmoderated group for source code. Guidelines are
   posted periodically.

 * comp.os.msdos.djgpp is specifically for support of DJGPP. For more
   information on DJGPP see <Q:10.04> [What and where is DJGPP?]

 * comp.os.msdos.programmer.turbovision is specifically for programming
   in Turbo Vision.

 * rec.games.programmer discusses many graphics programming topics.

 * alt.msdos.batch specializes in the discussion of MS-DOS batch files.

 * alt.msdos.batch.nt specializes in the discussion of batch files for
   Windows NT, 2000, and XP.
