The question is "which documentation". I think that it is in the blynx
docs. Do we put it in the INSTALLATION file (which most DOS end users
will never see)? The binary that I distribute is built with SLang, so
I don't have it there. This is a similar problem to the docs on how to
install a Win32 binary. It either needs to be put in by whomever is
distributing the binary, or someone needs to sponsor a web page with
the information, so that pointer to the URL can be given.
