  • File ISB41 README BIOMCH-L

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    Following the posting of draft 4.1 of the ISB S&TC's long-awaited Standardi-
    zation proposal, here is the README file with instructions for file retrieval
    and processing. Getting all these different versions properly stored and
    retrievable was a lengthy exercise in standardization and communication
    problems by itself, with MS-Dos, Macintosh, VAX/VMS, VAX/Ultrix, and IBM
    platforms each imposing their own constraints; this explains the one-month
    delay since version 4.1 was finalised: various versions have already been
    available for some time.

    At the end of his posting, Peter Cavanagh indicates that he anticipates
    private comments at CELOS, by letter, tel/fax, and/or email. Hopefully,
    public comments on Biomch-L will be considered, too?

    hjw.

    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STANDARDIZATION IN THE REPORTING OF KINEMATIC DATA

    Draft Version 4.1, April 3, 1992

    N.B. Draft version 4.0 of 23 March 1992 was published in the February/March
    1992 Newsletter of the ISB.

    The following help file and versions are available from LISTSERV@HEARN.BITNET
    and (for Internet users) from the equivalent address LISTSERV@NIC.SURFNET.NL:

    File_name File_type Description
    --------- --------- -----------
    ISB41 README This help file
    ISB41 TXT Plain ASCII file without illustrations (Biomch-L posting
    of 4 May 1992)
    ISB41WP5 UUE UUENCODEd, self-extracting executable (based on ARJ230NG)
    of a Word Perfect 5.1 file for MS-DOS compatible systems
    ISB41WD5 HQX BINHEXed, compressed MS-Words 4.0/5.0 file for the Mac-
    intosh
    ISB41PS UUE UUENCODEd, Z-compressed PostScript version of the
    ISB41WD5 HQX file [temporarily withdrawn -- hjw].

    All these files can be retrieved by sending interactive messages on BITNET or
    email requests in the main body of an email note to either address above (the
    Subject: line is irrelevant), of the form

    SEND file_name file_type BIOMCH-L

    BITNET users will receive the requested items as NETDATA files, others as
    email notes. Furthermore, some of these files are available via anonymous
    FTP from an experimental server ftp.nici.kun.nl (IP # 131.174.83.28), in
    subdirectory /pub/isb.

    If there is sufficient demand, other versions might be made available, too,
    for example, a self-extracting executable under MS-DOS of the PostScript
    version.
