Thanks for the guides info. I never find these things as I tend to find
the Unix directory structure obtuse and incomprehensible
(e.g. /usr/lib/bin/src/lib/bin/usr/local/lib/bin - etc). I think the
people behind Unix took terseness into a whole new dimension. Much as I
hate Microsoft, I find directory names like "program files" and even
"system" a breath of fresh air.

Thanks! Ill get stuck into that doco.
