NAME

       Intro - Introduction the manual pages, commands and applications


DESCRIPTION

       These  are  the  manual pages for GNO/ME v2.0.6, the multitasking UNIX-
       like environment for the Apple IIgs.  They are broken up into the  fol-
       lowing chapters or sections:

              1    Commands and Applications
              2    System Calls
              3    Library Routines
              3F   Fortran Routines
              4    Devices
              5    File Formats
              6    Games
              7    Miscellaneous
              8    System Administration

       Within each chapter, the manual pages are sorted alphabetically.  Chap-
       ter 3F, Fortran Routines, is not currently used, but  that  chapter  is
       reserved for Fortran routines (intrinsic and external).

       This  page is the introduction to Chapter 1, Commands and Applications.
       It covers all external user commands.  It specifically  excludes  shell
       built-in  commands, games, and programs intended for system administra-
       tion.

       For third party programs, it is the responsibility of  the  application
       programmer to provide suitable manual pages.


COMMAND SYNTAX

       Unless otherwise noted, commands described in the SYNOPSIS section of a
       manual page accept options and other arguments according to the follow-
       ing syntax and should be interpreted as explained below:

              name [ -option [ optarg ] ... ] [ arg ... ]

       where:

              name   is the name of the executable file.

              -option
                     is  a  single  character  option flag, almost always pre-
                     ceeded by a hyphen.  Programs which make use of  the  GNU
                     getopt(3)  package  may  also use long options, which are
                     multi-character options preceeded by two hypens (such  as
                     --recursive.)

              optarg is the option argument, if required.

              arg    is a regular argument, if required.

              [ ]    Surround an option or argument that is optional.

              ...    indicate multiple occurances of the preceeding symbol.
