If you have problems with this listserv that you can't resolve and you
want to talk to a human about it, send email to address@hidden

You can subscribe or unsubscribe to any of the various
mailing lists at delorie.com by sending email to
"address@hidden", like this Unix example:

        $ Mail address@hidden
        Subject: (no subject required)
        add djgpp

To get a list of the groups and their purposes, do like this:

        $ Mail address@hidden
        Subject: (no subject required)

Note that the digest groups are purposefully closed to mailings.  You
may subscribe to them, but you may not send mail to them.

The commands understood by the listserv program may be upper
or lower case, and are:

        lists this file.  This is also sent whenever a
        message to listserv is received from which no valid
        command could be parsed.

HELP groupname
        lists a brief description of the group requested.

        lists all the groups available for subscription.

        lists all the groups and their descriptions.

ADD listname     
DELETE listname 
        Adds you to or removes you from the given list.

DELETE address listname 
        Deletes the given address from the list specified.  Mail is
        sent to the address given to confirm the delete operation.  If
        you omit the 'address' the command will assume the mailbox
        that is in the From: line of the message.  Note that
        UNSUBSCRIBE is a synonym for DELETE.

A command must be the first word on each line in the message.
Lines which do not start with a command word are ignored.  If
no commands were found in the entire message, this help file
will be returned to the user.  A single message may contain
multiple commands; a separate response will be sent for each.

Please note that is IS possible to delete someone else's subscription
to a mailing list.  This facility is provided so that subscribers may
alter their own subscriptions from a new or different computer
account.  There is therefore some potential for abuse; we have chosen
to limit this by mailing a confirmation notification of any deletion
to the address deleted including a copy of the message which requested
the operation.  At least you can find out who's doing it to you.


        add djgpp

        delete address@hidden djgpp-announce
