Dear Biomch-L readers,

Following the NIH items on this list during the past two weeks, here is
some information on a fileserver for the USA's National Science Foundation.

"HELP" FOR "INFO" IN THE NSF INFO SERVER

The NSF Info Server is a program that delivers information by
electronic mail. If you are on the Internet, or can send mail to
Internet sites, you access the Info Server by sending mail to:

info@note.nsf.gov

If you are on BITNET, you may address your requests to:

INFO@NSF

You do not need a subject field. The text of your message must be in a
special format, such as:

REQUEST: INFO
TOPIC: HELP
REQUEST: END

This request asks for the document "HELP" from the "request" collection
"INFO". Your message must have a "REQUEST" line, to specify the
request collection, and one or more "TOPIC:" lines to specify documents
from the collection. The optional statement "REQUEST: END" terminates
your specification. Any subsequent text in the message is ignored by
the Info Server.

The document you are now reading can be requested by:

REQUEST: INFO
TOPIC: HELP

It is also sent automatically if there are no "request:" lines in your
message.
