                           4.  ADMINISTRATIVIA

                          4.1  Revision history
   This  is  version 1.1 of this paper.  Version 1.0 of the IRCprimer was
released  in  postscript  form  in June 1992 because I was sick of people
asking  for  an  IRC  or  ircII  manual  (and  it was a good way to learn
LaTeX!).   During  summer  1992  Owe  Rasmussen  did  a  very  nice  text
conversion  of  the  paper.  Due to the support and many remarks I got, a
new version  is finally completed  (special thanks to Olaf Titz !), along
with Owe's plain ascii conversion.

   The primer is available in 3 formats:

           Postscript version
                  IRCprimer.txt:    Plain text version
                  IRCprimer.tex.Z:  Source code.

                  4.2  Release sites for the IRCprimer

   The  latest  version  of  the primer can be found on the following ftp
sites, thanks to their admins:

                    Table 21: IRCprimer release sites
                     ftp site           location
                     ~~~~~~~~           ~~~~~~~~

   Here's how to get the latest primer postscript version for example:

        ~ > ftp
        ftp> verbose off
        Verbose mode off.
        ftp> open
        Name ( ftp
        Password: yourname@yourhost
        ftp> cd irc/support
        ftp> bin
        ftp> get
        ftp> quit
        ~ > uncompress
        ~ >
