   This manual has gone through numerous drafts.  It is nearly complete
but not flawless.  There are a few sections which are not included,
either because we consider them secondary (such as most of the
individual modes) or because they are yet to be written.

   Because we are not able to deal with them completely, we have left
out several parts intentionally.  This includes most references to VMS
and all information relating Sunview.  (The Free Software Foundation
expends no effort on support for Sunview, since we believe users should
use the free X window system rather than proprietary window systems.)

   The manual should be fully correct in what it does cover, and it is
therefore open to criticism on anything it says--from specific examples
and descriptive text, to the ordering of chapters and sections.  If
something is confusing, or you find that you have to look at the sources
or experiment to learn something not covered in the manual, then perhaps
the manual should be fixed.  Please let us know.

   As you use this manual, we ask that you send corrections as soon as
you find them.  If you think of a simple, real life example for a
function or group of functions, please make an effort to write it up
and send it in.  Please reference any comments to the node name and
function or variable name, as appropriate.  Also state the number of
the edition which you are criticizing.

   Please mail comments and corrections to
