-<!-- Recently, I wanted to figure out how to use some additional fonts that
- I had accumulated. I finally figured out *how to do it* from the various
- man pages and documentation. Since it might be of use to other users,
- and I didn't see any reference to this topic in the FAQ or handbook, I
- thought I'd try my hand at a simple cookbook tutorial addressing the
- use of fonts. I have included my unanswered questions at the end of
- the document.
-
- Anyway, here's what I put together. This is my present understanding of
- fonts and how to use them with FreeBSD. I am sure that there are errors or
- misunderstandings, but it contains enough valid information to allow the
- use of additional fonts with Ghostscript, X11 and Groff. This is my first
- attempt to write anything along the lines of a tutorial/FAQ, so I am sure
- it is pretty raw. There are probably better ways to do some of this stuff,
- and I would welcome being corrected.

-<title>Introduction</title>
-
-<para>There are many sources of fonts available, and one might ask
-how they might be used with FreeBSD. The answer can be found by
-carefully searching the documentation for the component that one
-would like to use. This is very time consuming, so this tutorial is
-an attempt to provide a shortcut for others who might be
-interested.</para>

-suffixes. A few that will be addressed here are:

-
-<para>The <filename>.fot</filename> file is used by Windows as sort
-of a symbolic link to the actual TrueType font
-(<filename>.ttf</filename>) file. The <filename>.fon</filename> font
-files are also used by Windows. I know of no way to use this font
-format with FreeBSD.</para>

-<chapter>
-<title>What font formats can I use?</title>
-
-<para>Which font file format is useful depends on the application
-being used. FreeBSD by itself uses no fonts. Application programs
-and/or drivers may make use of the font files. Here is a small cross
-reference of application/driver to the font type suffixes:</para>
-
-<para>

-
-<para>The <filename>.fnt</filename> suffix is used quite frequently.
-I suspect that whenever someone wanted to create a specialized font
-file for their application, more often than not they chose this
-suffix. Therefore, it is likely that files with this suffix are not
-all the same format; specifically, the <filename>.fnt</filename>
-files used by syscons under FreeBSD may not be the same format as a
-<filename>.fnt</filename> file one encounters in the MSDOS/Windows
-environment. I have not made any attempt at using other
-<filename>.fnt</filename> files other than those provided with
-FreeBSD.</para>

-<title>Setting a virtual console to 80x60 line mode</title>
-
-<para>First, a 8x8 font must be loaded.
-<filename>/etc/sysconfig</filename> should contain the lines:
-<informalexample>
-<programlisting># Choose font 8x8 from /usr/share/syscons/fonts/* (or NO for default)
-font8x8=/usr/share/syscons/fonts/cp437-8x8.fnt</programlisting>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>The command to actually switch the mode is
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>vidcontrol</><manvolnum>1</></>:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bash$ <userinput>vidcontrol VGA_80x60</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>Various screen orientated programs, such as
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>vi</><manvolnum>1</></>, must be able to
-determine the current screen dimensions. These can be set with
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>stty</><manvolnum>1</></>:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bash$ <userinput>stty crt rows 60 columns 80</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>To make this more seamless, one can embed these commands in the
-startup scripts so it takes place when the system boots. One way to
-do this is:
-<orderedlist>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>Modify <filename>/etc/sysconfig</filename> as above</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>Add to <filename>/etc/rc.local</filename>:

-<chapter>
-<title>Using type 1 fonts with X11</title>
-
-<para>X11 can use either the <filename>.pfa</filename> or the
-<filename>.pfb</filename> format fonts. The X11 fonts are located in
-various subdirectories under
-<filename>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts</filename>. Each font file is
-cross referenced to its X11 name by the contents of the
-<filename>fonts.dir</filename> file in each directory.</para>
-
-<para>There is already a directory named <filename>Type1</>. The most
-straight forward way to add a new font is to put it into this
-directory. A better way is to keep all new fonts in a separate
-directory and use a symbolic link to the additional font. This
-allows one to more easily keep track of ones fonts without confusing
-them with the fonts that were originally provided. For
-example:
-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Create a directory to contain the font files</>
-bash$ <userinput>mkdir -p /usr/local/share/fonts/type1</>
-bash$ <userinput>cd /usr/local/share/fonts/type1</>
-
-<lineannotation>Place the .pfa, .pfb and .afm files here</>
-<lineannotation>One might want to keep readme files, and other documentation</>
-<lineannotation>for the fonts here also</>
-bash$ <userinput>cp /cdrom/fonts/atm/showboat/showboat.pfb .</>
-bash$ <userinput>cp /cdrom/fonts/atm/showboat/showboat.afm .</>
-
-<lineannotation>Maintain an index to cross reference the fonts</>
-bash$ <userinput>echo showboat - InfoMagic CICA, Dec 1994, /fonts/atm/showboat &gt;&gt;INDEX</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>Now, to use a new font with X11, one must make the font file
-available and update the font name files. The X11 font names look
-like:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>-bitstream-charter-medium-r-normal-xxx-0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1
- | | | | | | | | | | | | \ \
- | | | | | \ \ \ \ \ \ \ +----+- character set
- | | | | \ \ \ \ \ \ \ +- average width
- | | | | \ \ \ \ \ \ +- spacing
- | | | \ \ \ \ \ \ +- vertical res.
- | | | \ \ \ \ \ +- horizontal res.
- | | | \ \ \ \ +- points
- | | | \ \ \ +- pixels
- | | | \ \ \
- foundry family weight slant width additional style</screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>A new name needs to be created for each new font. If you have
-some information from the documentation that accompanied the font,
-then it could serve as the basis for creating the name. If there is
-no information, then you can get some idea by using
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>strings</><manvolnum>1</></> on the font
-file. For example:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bash$ <userinput>strings showboat.pfb | more</>

-<varlistentry><term>Slant</term>
-<listitem>
-<para><emphasis remap=bf>r</emphasis>oman, <emphasis

-<para>proportional or monospaced. <emphasis>Proportional</emphasis>

-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-</variablelist>
-</para>
-
-<para>All of these names are arbitrary, but one should strive to be
-compatible with the existing conventions. A font is referenced by
-name with possible wild cards by an X11 program, so the name chosen
-should make some sense. One might begin by simply using
-<informalexample>
-<screen>&hellip;-normal-r-normal-&hellip;-p-&hellip;</screen>
-</informalexample>
-as the name, and then use
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>xfontsel</><manvolnum>1</></> to examine it
-and adjust the name based on the appearance of the font.</para>
-
-<para>So, to complete our example:
-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Make the font accessible to X11</>

-<title>Using type 1 fonts with Ghostscript</title>
-
-<para>Ghostscript references a font via its <filename>Fontmap</>
-file. This must be modified in a similar way to the X11
-<filename>fonts.dir</filename> file. Ghostscript can use either the
-<filename>.pfa</filename> or the <filename>.pfb</filename> format
-fonts. Using the font from the previous example, here is how to use

-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Put the font in Ghostscript's font directory</>

-<chapter>
-<title>Using type 1 fonts with Groff</title>
-
-<para>Now that the new font can be used by both X11 and Ghostscript,
-how can one use the new font with groff? First of all, since we are
-dealing with type 1 postscript fonts, the groff device that is
-applicable is the <emphasis>ps</emphasis> device. A font file must be
-created for each font that groff can use. A groff font name is just
-a file in <filename>/usr/share/groff_font/devps</filename>. With our
-example, the font file could be
-<filename>/usr/share/groff_font/devps/SHOWBOAT</filename>. The file
-must be created using tools provided by groff.</para>
-
-<para>The first tool is <command>afmtodit</>. This is not normally
-installed, so it must be retrieved from the source distribution. I
-found I had to change the first line of the file, so I did:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bash$ <userinput>cp /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/groff/afmtodit/afmtodit.pl /tmp</>
-bash$ <userinput>ex /tmp/afmtodit.pl
-:1c
-#!/usr/bin/perl -P-
-.
-:wq</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>This tool will create the groff font file from the metrics file
-(<filename>.afm</filename> suffix.) Continuing with our
-example:
-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Many <filename>.afm</> files are in Mac format&hellip ^M delimited lines
-We need to convert them to unix style ^J delimited lines</>
-bash$ <userinput>cd /tmp</>
-bash$ <userinput>cat /usr/local/share/fonts/type1/showboat.afm |
- tr '\015' '\012' &gt;showboat.afm</>
-
-<lineannotation>Now create the groff font file</>
-bash$ <userinput>cd /usr/share/groff_font/devps</>
-bash$ <userinput>/tmp/afmtodit.pl -d DESC -e text.enc /tmp/showboat.afm generate/textmap SHOWBOAT</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>The font can now be referenced with the name SHOWBOAT.</para>
-
-<para>If ghostscript is used to drive the printers on the system,
-then nothing more needs to be done. However, if true postscript
-printers are used, then the font must be down loaded to the printer
-in order for the font to be used (unless the printer happens to have
-the showboat font built in or on an accessible font disk.) The final
-step is to create a down loadable font. The <command>pfbtops</> tool
-is used to create the <filename>.pfa</filename> format of the font,
-and the <filename>download</> file is modified to reference the new
-font. The <filename>download</> file must reference the internal
-name of the font. This can easily be determined from the groff font
-file as illustrated:
-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Create the <filename>.pfa</> font file</>
-bash$ <userinput>pfbtops /usr/local/share/fonts/type1/showboat.pfb &gt;showboat.pfa</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-Of course, if the <filename>.pfa</filename> file is already
-available, just use a symbolic link to reference it.
-<informalexample>
-<screen><lineannotation>Get the internal font name</>
-bash$ <userinput>fgrep internalname SHOWBOAT</>
-internalname Showboat
-
-<lineannotation>Tell groff that the font must be down loaded</>
-bash$ <userinput>ex download
-:$a
-Showboat showboat.pfa
-.
-:wq</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>To test the font:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bash$ <userinput>cd /tmp</>
-bash$ <userinput>cat &gt;example.t &lt;&lt;EOF

-<title>Can TrueType fonts be used?</title>
-
-<para>The TrueType font format is used by Windows, Windows 95,
-Mac's,&hellip It is quite popular and there are a great number of
-fonts available in this format. Unfortunately, there are only two
-applications that I am aware of that can use this format: Ghostscript
-and povray. Ghostscript's support, according to the documentation,
-is rudimentary and the results are likely to be inferior to type 1
-fonts.</para>
-
-<para>However, groff would need a font description file, and I know
-of no tools to construct the metrics from a TrueType font. In
-addition, the font would have to be down loaded to postscript
-printers in the appropriate format, and again, groff cannot handle
-TrueType fonts in this fashion.</para>
-
-<para>X11 has no support for TrueType fonts that I am aware
-of.</para>
-
-<para>The only program that I know of that has the ability to use
-TrueType fonts is povray version 3, but I rather doubt many people
-will be creating documents as a series of raytraced pages!

-<para>Many fonts are available on the Internet. They are either
-entirely free, or are share-ware. In addition, there are many
-inexpensive CDROMs available that contain many fonts. Some Internet

-<title>Overview</title>
-<para>Successfully adding disks to an existing system is the mark of an
-experienced system administrator. Slicing, partitioning, and adding
-disks requires a careful dance of proper command and name syntax. One
-slipped finger and an entire disk could disappear in seconds. This
-document is written in an attempt to simplify this process and avoid
-accidents. Thankfully, enhancements to existing tools (notably
-sysinstall) have greatly improved this process in recent releases of
-FreeBSD. </para>
-
-<para>There are two possible modes of disk formatting:
-<itemizedlist>
-
-<listitem><para><firstterm>compatibility mode</firstterm>: Arranging a
-disk so that it has a slice table for use with other operating
-systems.</para> </listitem>
-
-<listitem><para><firstterm>dangerously dedicated mode</firstterm>:
-Formatting a disk with no slice table. This makes the process of
-adding disks easier, however non-FreeBSD operating systems may not
-accept the disk. </para> </listitem>
-</itemizedlist>
-</para>
-
-<para>For most cases, dedicated mode is the easiest to set up and use
-in existing systems, as a new disk is usually dedicated entirely to
-FreeBSD. However, compatibility mode insures optimum interoperability
-with future installations at a cost of increased complexity.</para>
-
-<para>In addition to selecting the mode, two methods of slicing the
-disk are available. One is using the system installation tool
-<command>/stand/sysinstall</command>. 2.1.7-RELEASE and later
-versions of <command>sysinstall</command> contain code to ease setup
-of disks during normal system operation, mainly allowing access to the
-Label and Partition editors and a Write feature which will update just
-the selected disk and slice without affecting other disks. The other
-method is running the tools manually from a root command line. For
-dangerously dedicated mode, only three or four commands are involved
-while <command>sysinstall</command> requires some manipulation.</para>
-</sect1>
-<sect1>
-<title>Definitions</title>
-
-<para>UNIX disk management over the centuries has invented many new
-definitions for old words. The following glossary covers the
-definitions used in this document and (hopefully) for FreeBSD in
-general. </para>
-
-<!-- I'm tempted to use GLOSSARY here but will resort to a list for
-now. -->
-
-<itemizedlist>
-<listitem><para>compatibility mode: Arranging a disk so that it has a slice
-table for use with other operating systems. Oppose dangerously
-dedicated mode.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>dangerously dedicated mode: Formatting a disk with no slice
-table. This makes the process of adding disks easier, however
-non-FreeBSD operating systems may not accept the disk. Oppose
-compatibility mode.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>disk: A circular disc, covered with magnetic or similarly
-manipulable material, spun by a motor under a head. Data is stored on
-the disk by changing the pattern of magnetism on the disc, which can
-be later read. Hard disks, CD-ROMs, Magneto-optical,and Zip/Jaz
-removables are examples of disks.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>slice: A division of a disk. Up to four slices are permitted on one
-disk in the PC standard. Slices are composed of contiguous sectors.
-Slices are recorded in a <quote>slice table</quote> used by the system BIOS to
-locate bootable partitions. The slice table is usually called the
-Partition Table in DOS parlance. Maintained by the fdisk utility.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>partition: A division of a slice. Usually used in reference
-to divisions of the FreeBSD slice of a disk. Each filesystem and swap
-area on a disk resides in a partition. Maintained using the disklabel
-utility.</para></listitem>
-
-<listitem><para>sector: Smallest subdivision of a disk. One sector usually
-represents 512 bytes of data.</para></listitem>
-
-</itemizedlist>

-<sect1>
-<title>Warnings & Pitfalls</title>
-
-<para>Building disks is not something to take lightly. It is quite possible
-to destroy the contents of other disks in your system if the proper
-precautions are not taken.</para>
-
-<para><emphasis>Check your work carefully.</> It is very simple to destroy
-the incorrect disk when working with these commands. When
-in doubt consult the kernel boot output for the proper device.</para>
-
-<para>Needless to say, we are not responsible for any damage to any data
-or hardware that you may experience. You work at your own risk!</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1>
-<title>Zip, Jaz, and Other Removables</title>
-
-<para>Removable disks can be formatted in the same way as normal hard
-disks. It is essential to have the disk drive connected to the system
-and a disk placed in the drive during startup, so the kernel can
-determine the drive's geometry. Check the <command>dmesg</command>
-output and make sure your device and the disk's size is listed. If
-the kernel reports
-<informalexample>
-<screen>
-Can't get the size
-</screen>
-</informalexample>
-then the disk was not in the drive. In this case, you will need to restart the
-machine before attempting to format disks.

-<title>Introduction</title>
-
-<para>MH started back in 1977 at the RAND Corporation, where the
-initial philosophies behind MH were developed. MH isn't so much a
-monolithic email program but a philosophy about how best to develop
-tools for reading email. The MH developers have done a great job
-adhering to the <acronym>KISS</> principle: Keep It Simple Stupid.
-Rather than have one large program for reading, sending and handling
-email they have written specialized programs for each part of your
-email life. One might liken MH to the specialization that one finds
-in insects and nature. Each tool in MH does one thing, and does it
-very well.</para>
-
-<para>Beyond just the various tools that one uses to handle their
-email MH has done an excellent job keeping the configuration of each
-of these tools consistent and uniform. In fact, if you are not quite
-sure how something is supposed to work or what the arguments for some
-command are supposed to be then you can generally guess and be right.
-Each MH command is consistent about how it handles reading the
-configuration files and how it takes arguments on the command line.
-One useful thing to remember is that you can always add a
-<option>-help</option> to the command to have it display the options
-for that command.</para>
-
-<para>The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you have
-installed the MH package on your FreeBSD machine. If you installed
-from CDROM you should be able to execute the following to load mh:
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>pkg_add /cdrom/packages/mh-6.8.3.tgz</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-You will notice that it created a <filename>/usr/local/lib/mh</>
-directory for you as well as adding several binaries to the
-<filename>/usr/local/bin</> directory. If you would prefer to compile
-it yourself then you can anonymous ftp it from <ulink
-URL="ftp://ftp.ics.uci.edu/">ftp.ics.uci.edu</ulink> or <ulink
-URL="ftp://louie.udel.edu/">louie.udel.edu</ulink>.</para>
-
-<para>This primer is not a full comprehensive explanation of how MH
-works. This is just intended to get you started on the road to
-happier, faster mail reading. You should read the man pages for the
-various commands. Also you might want to read the <ulink
-URL="news:comp.mail.mh">comp.mail.mh</ulink> newsgroup. Also you can
-read the <ulink
-URL="http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/mh-faq/part1/faq.html">FAQ
-for MH</ulink>. The best resource for MH is the O'Reilly and Associates book
-written by Jerry Peek.</para>

-<command>prev</>, <command>rmm</>, <command>rmf</>, and
-<command>msgchk</>. One of the best things about MH is the
-consistent interface between programs. A few things to keep in mind
-when using these commands is how to specify message lists. In the
-case of <command>inc</> this doesn't really make any sense but with
-commands like <command>show</> it is useful to know. </para>
-
-<para>A message list can consist of something like <parameter>23 20
-16</> which will act on messages 23, 20 and 16. This is fairly simple
-but you can do more useful things like <parameter>23-30</> which will
-act on all the messages between 23 and 30. You can also specify
-something like <parameter>cur:10</> which will act on the current
-message and the next 9 messages. The <parameter>cur</>,
-<parameter>last</>, and <parameter>first</> messages are special
-messages that refer to the current, last or first message in the
-folder.</para>

-<para>If you just type in <userinput>inc</> and hit <keycap>return</>
-you will be well on your way to getting started with MH. The first
-time you run <command>inc</> it will setup your account to use all

-This is the same thing you will see from a <command>scan</> (see
-<xref linkend="scan">). If you just run <command>inc</> with no
-arguments it will look on your computer for email that is supposed to
-be coming to you.</para>
-
-<para>A lot of people like to use POP for grabbing their email. MH can do
-POP to grab your email. You will need to give <command>inc</> a few command
-line arguments.
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>inc -host mail.pop.org -user <replaceable>username</> -norpop</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-That tells <command>inc</> to go to <parameter>mail.pop.org</> to
-download your email, and that your username on their system is
-<replaceable>username</>. The <option>-norpop</option> option tells
-<command>inc</> to use plain POP3 for downloading your email. MH has
-support for a few different dialects of POP. More than likely you
-will never ever need to use them though. While you can do more
-complex things with inc such as audit files and scan format files
-this will get you going.</para>
-
-<para>The <command>msgchk</> command is used to get information on
-whether or not you have new email. <command>msgchk</> takes the same
-<option>-host</option> and <option>-user</option> options that
-<command>inc</> takes.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1 id="show">
-<title><command>show</>, <command>next</> and <command>prev</>&mdash;displaying and moving through email</title>
-
-<para><command>show</> is to show a letter in your current folder.
-Like <command>inc</>, <command>show</> is a fairly straightforward
-command. If you just type <userinput>show</> and hit <keycap>return</>
-then it displays the current message. You can also give specific
-message numbers to show:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>show 32 45 56</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-This would display message numbers 32, 45 and 56 right after each
-other. Unless you change the default behavior <command>show</>
-basically just does a <command>more</> on the email message.</para>
-
-<para><command>next</> is used to move onto the next message and
-<command>prev</> will go to the previous message. Both commands have
-an implied <command>show</> command so that when you go to the next
-message it automatically displays it.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1 id="scan">
-<title><command>scan</>&mdash;shows you a scan of your messages</title>

-Like just about everything in MH this display is very configurable.
-This is the typical default display. It gives you the message number,
-the date on the email, the sender, the subject line, and a sentence
-fragment from the very beginning of the email if it can fit it. The
-<literal>+</> means that message is the current message, so if you do
-a <command>show</> it will display that message.</para>
-
-<para>One useful option for scan is the <option>-reverse</option>
-option. This will list your messages with the highest message number
-first and lowest message number last. Another useful option with
-<command>scan</> is to have it read from a file. If you want to scan
-your incoming mailbox on FreeBSD without having to <command>inc</> it
-you can do <command>scan -file
-/var/mail/<replaceable>username</></command>. This can be used with
-any file that is in the <database>mbox</> format.</para>

-
-<sect1 id="rmm">
-<title><command>rmm</> and <command>rmf</>&mdash;remove the current message or folder</title>
-
-<para><command>rmm</> is used to remove a mail message. The default
-is typically to not actually remove the message but to rename the
-file to one that is ignored by the MH commands. You will need to
-through periodically and physically delete the <quote>removed</>
-messages.</para>
-
-<para>The <command>rmf</> command is used to remove folders. This
-doesn't just rename the files but actually removes the from the hard

-<chapter>
-<title>Folders and Mail Searching</title>
-
-<para>Anybody who gets lots of email definitely wants to be able to
-prioritize, stamp, brief, de-brief, and number their emails in a
-variety of different ways. MH can do this better than just about
-anything. One thing that we haven't really talked about is the
-concept of folders. You have undoubtedly come across the folders
-concept using other email programs. MH has folders too. MH can even
-do sub-folders of a folder. One thing you should keep in mind with MH
-is that when you ran <command>inc</> for the first time and it asked
-you if it could create a <filename>Mail</> directory it began storing
-everything in that directory. If you look at that directory you will
-find a directory named <filename>inbox</>. The <filename>inbox</>
-directory houses all of your incoming mail that hasn't been thrown
-anywhere else.</para>
-
-<para>Whenever you create a new folder a new directory is going to be
-created underneath your MH <filename>Mail</> directory, and messages
-in that folder are going to be stored in that directory. When new
-email comes in that new email is thrown into your <filename>inbox</>
-directory with a file name that is equivalent to the message number.
-So even if you didn't have any of the MH tools to read your email you
-could still use standard UNIX commands to munge around in those
-directories and just more your files. It's this simplicity that
-really gives you a lot of power with what you can do with your
-email.</para>
-
-<para>Just as you can use message lists like <parameter>23 16 42</>
-with most MH commands there is a folder option you can specify with
-just about every MH command. If you do a <command>scan +freebsd</> it
-will scan your <filename>freebsd</> folder, and your current folder
-will be changed to <filename>freebsd</>. If you do a <command>show
-+freebsd 23 16 42</>, <command>show</> is going to switch to your
-<filename>freebsd</> folder and display messages 23, 16 and 42. So
-remember that <option>+<replaceable>folder</></> syntax. You will
-need to make sure you use it to make commands process different
-folders. Remember you default folder for mail is <filename>inbox</>
-so doing a <command>folder +inbox</> should always get you back to
-your mail. Of course, in MH's infinite flexibility this can be
-changed but most places have probably left it as
-<command>inbox</>.</para>
-
-
-<sect1>
-<title><command>pick</>&mdash;search email that matches certain criteria</title>
-
-<para><command>pick</> is one of the more complex commands in the MH
-system. So you might want to read the
-<citerefentry><refentrytitle>pick</><manvolnum>1</></> man page for a
-more thorough understanding. At its simplest level you can do
-something like
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>pick -search pci</>
-15
-42
-55
-56
-57</screen>
-</informalexample>
-
-This will tell <command>pick</> to look through every single line in
-every message in your current folder and tell you which message
-numbers it found the word <literal>pci</> in. You can then
-<command>show</> those messages and read them if you wish or
-<command>rmm</> them. You would have to specify something like
-<command>show 15 42 55-57</> to display them though. A slightly more
-useful thing to do is this:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>pick -search pci -seq pick</>
-5 hits
-tempest% <userinput>show pick</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-This will show you the same messages you just didn't have to work as
-hard to do it. The <option>-seq</option> option is really an
-abbreviation of <option>-sequence</option> and <command>pick</> is
-just a sequence which contains the message numbers that matched. You
-can use sequences with just about any MH command. So you could have
-done an <command>rmm pick</> and all those messages would be removed
-instead. You sequence can be named anything. If you run pick again it
-will overwrite the old sequence if you use the same name.</para>
-
-<para>Doing a <command>pick -search</command> can be a bit more time
-consuming than just searching for message from someone, or to
-someone. So <command>pick</> allows you to use the following
-predefined search criteria:
-
-<variablelist>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>-to</option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>search based upon who the message is to</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>-cc</option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>search based on who is in the cc list</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>-from</option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>search for who sent the message</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>-subject</option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>search for emails with this subject</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>-date</option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>find emails with a matching dat</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term><option>--<replaceable>component</replaceable></option></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>search for any other component in the header. (i.e.
-<option>--reply-to</> to find all emails with a certain reply-to in
-the header)</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-</variablelist></para>
-
-<para>This allows you to do things like
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>pick -to freebsd-hackers@freebsd.org -seq hackers</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-to get a list of all the email send to the FreeBSD hackers mailing
-list. <command>pick</> also allows you to group these criteria in
-different ways using the following options:
-<itemizedlist>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>&hellip; <option>-and</option> &hellip;</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>&hellip; <option>-or</option> &hellip</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para><option>-not</option> &hellip;</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para><option>-lbrace</option> &hellip; <option>-rbrace</option></para>
-</listitem>
-
-</itemizedlist>
-These commands allow you to do things like
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>pick -to freebsd-hackers -and -cc freebsd-hackers</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-That will grab all the email in your inbox that was sent to
-freebsd-hackers or cc'd to that list. The brace options allow you to
-group search criteria together. This is sometimes very necessary as
-in the following example
-<informalexample>
-<screen>tempest% <userinput>pick -lbrace -to freebsd-hackers -and
- -not -cc freebsd-questions -rbrace -and -subject pci</></screen>
-</informalexample></para>
-
-<para>Basically this says <quote>pick (to freebsd-hackers and not cc'd on
-freebsd-questions) and the subject is pci</quote>. It should look through your
-folder and find all messages sent to the freebsd-hackers list that
-aren't cc'd to the freebsd-questions list that contain something on
-pci in the subject line. Ordinarily you might have to worry about
-something called operator precedence. Remember in math how you
-evaluate from left to right and you do multiplication and division
-first and addition and subtraction second? MH has the same type of
-rules for <command>pick</>. It's fairly complex so you might want to study
-the man page. This document is just to help you get acquainted with
-MH.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1>
-<title><command>folder</>, <command>folders</>, <command>refile</>&mdash;three useful programs for folder maintenance</title>
-
-<para>There are three programs which are primarily just for
-manipulating your folders. The <command>folder</> program is used to
-switch between folders, pack them, and list them. At its simplest
-level you can do a <command>folder +<replaceable>newfolder</></> and
-you will be switched into <replaceable>newfolder</>. From there on
-out all your MH commands like <command>comp</>, <command>repl</>,
-<command>scan</>, and <command>show</> will act on that
-<command>newfolder</> folder.</para>
-
-<para>Sometimes when you are reading and deleting messages you will
-develop <quote>holes</> in your folders. If you do a <command>scan</>
-you might just see messages 34, 35, 36, 43, 55, 56, 57, 80. If you do
-a <command>folder -pack</command> this will renumber all your
-messages so that there are no holes. It doesn't actually delete any
-messages though. So you may need to periodically go through and
-physically delete <command>rmm</>'d messages.</para>
-
-<para>If you need statistics on your folders you can do a
-<command>folders</> or <command>folder -all</command> to list all
-your folders, how many messages they have, what the current message
-is in each one and so on. This line of stats it displays for all your
-folders is the same one you get when you change to a folder with
-<command>folder +foldername</>. A <command>folders</> command looks
-like this:
-<informalexample>
-<screen> Folder # of messages ( range ); cur msg (other files)
- announce has 1 message ( 1- 1).
- drafts has no messages.
- f-hackers has 43 messages ( 1- 43).
- f-questions has 16 messages ( 1- 16).
- inbox+ has 35 messages ( 1- 38); cur= 37.
- lists has 8 messages ( 1- 8).
- netfuture has 1 message ( 1- 1).
- out has 31 messages ( 1- 31).
- personal has 6 messages ( 1- 6).
- todo has 58 messages ( 1- 58); cur= 1.
-
- TOTAL= 199 messages in 13 folders.
-</screen>
-</informalexample></para>
-
-<para>The <command>refile</> command is what you use to move messages
-between folders. When you do something like <command>refile 23
-+netfuture</> message number 23 is moved into the
-<filename>netfuture</> folder. You could also do something like
-<command>refile 23 +netfuture/latest</> which would put message
-number 23 in a subfolder called <filename>latest</> under the
-<filename>netfuture</> folder. If you want to keep a message in the
-current folder and link it you can do a <command>refile -link 23
-+netfuture</command> which would keep 23 in your current
-<filename>inbox</> but also list in your <filename>netfuture</>
-folder. You are probably beginning to realize some of the really
-powerful things you can do with MH.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-</chapter>
-
-<chapter>
-<title>Sending Mail</title>
-
-<para>Email is a two way street for most people so you want to be
-able to send something back. The way MH handles sending mail can be a
-bit difficult to follow at first, but it allows for incredible
-flexibility. The first thing MH does is to copy a components file
-into your outgoing email. A components file is basically a skeleton
-email letter with stuff like the To: and Subject: headers already in
-it. You are then sent into your editor where you fill in the header
-information and then type the body of your message below the dashed
-lines in the message. Then to the <command>whatnow</> program. When
-you are at the <prompt>What now?</prompt> prompt you can tell it to
-<command>send</>, <command>list</>, <command>edit</>,
-<command>edit</>, <command>push</>, and <command>quit</>. Most of
-these commands are self-explanatory. So the message sending process
-involves copying a component file, editing your email, and then
-telling the <command>whatnow</> program what to do with your
-email.</para>
-
-
-<sect1>
-<title><command>comp</>, <command>forw</>, <command>reply</>&mdash;compose, forward or reply to a message to someone</title>
-
-<para>The <command>comp</> program has a few useful command line
-options. The most important one to know right now is the
-<option>-editor</option> option. When MH is installed the default
-editor is usually a program called <command>prompter</> which comes
-with MH. It's not a very exciting editor and basically just gets the
-job done. So when you go to compose a message to someone you might
-want to use <command>comp -editor /usr/bin/vi/</> or <command>comp
--editor /usr/local/bin/pico/</> instead. Once you have run
-<emphasis>comp</emphasis> you are in your editor and you see
-something that looks like this:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>To:
-cc:
-Subject:
---------
-</screen>
-</informalexample></para>
-
-<para>You need to put the person you are sending the mail to after the
-<literal>To:</> line. It works the same way for the other headers
-also, so you would need to put your subject after the
-<literal>Subject:</> line. Then you would just put the body of your
-message after the dashed lines. It may seem a bit simplistic since a
-lot of email programs have special requesters that ask you for this
-information but there really isn't any point to that. Plus this
-really gives you excellent flexibility.
-<informalexample>
-<screen>To:<userinput>freebsd-rave@freebsd.org</>
-cc:
-Subject:<userinput>And on the 8th day God created the FreeBSD core team</>
---------
-<userinput>Wow this is an amazing operating system. Thanks!</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-You can now save this message and exit your editor. You will see the
-<prompt>What now?</> prompt and you can type in
-<userinput>send</> or <userinput>s</> and hit
-<keycap>return</>. Then the freebsd core team will receive their just
-rewards. As I mentioned earlier you can also use other commands, for
-example <command>quit</> if you don't want to send the
-message.</para>
-
-<para>The <command>forw</> command is stunningly similar. The big
-difference being that the message you are forwarding is automatically
-included in the outgoing message. When you run <command>forw</> it
-will forward your current message. You can always tell it to forward
-something else by doing something like <command>forw 23</> and then
-message number 23 will be put in your outgoing message instead of the
-current message. Beyond those small differences <command>forw</>
-functions exactly the same as <command>comp</>. You go through the
-exact same message sending process.</para>
-
-<para>The <command>repl</> command will reply to whatever your
-current message is, unless you give it a different message to reply
-to. <command>repl</> will do its best to go ahead and fill in some of
-the email headers already. So you will notice that the
-<literal>To:</> header already has the address of the recipient in
-there. Also the <literal>Subject:</> line will already be filled in.
-You then go about the normal message composition process and you are
-done. One useful command line option to know here is the
-<option>-cc</option> option. You can use <parameter>all</>,
-<parameter>to</>, <parameter>cc</>, <parameter>me</> after the
-<option>-cc</option> option to have <command>repl</> automatically
-add the various addresses to the cc list in the message. You have
-probably noticed that the original message isn't included. This is
-because most MH setups are configured to do this from the
-start.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1>
-<title><filename>components</>, and <filename>replcomps</>&mdash;components files for <command>comp</> and <command>repl</></title>
-
-<para>The <filename>components</> file is usually in
-<filename>/usr/local/lib/mh</filename>. You can copy that file into
-your MH Mail directory and edit to contain what you want it to
-contain. It is a fairly basic file. You have various email headers at
-the top, a dashed line and then nothing. The
-<command>comp</command> command just copies this
-<filename>components</> file and then edits it. You can add any
-kind of valid RFC822 header you want. For instance you could have
-something like this in your <filename>components</> file:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>To:
-Fcc: out
-Subject:
-X-Mailer: MH 6.8.3
-X-Home-Page: http://www.freebsd.org/
--------</screen>
-</informalexample>
-
-MH would then copy this components file and throw you into your
-editor. The <filename>components</> file is fairly simple. If you
-wanted to have a signature on those messages you would just put your
-signature in that <filename>components</> file.</para>
-
-<para>The <filename>replcomps</> file is a bit more complex. The default
-<filename>replcomps</> looks like this:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>%(lit)%(formataddr %&lt;{reply-to}%?{from}%?{sender}%?{return-path}%&gt;)\
-%&lt;(nonnull)%(void(width))%(putaddr To: )\n%&gt;\
-%(lit)%(formataddr{to})%(formataddr{cc})%(formataddr(me))\
-%&lt;(nonnull)%(void(width))%(putaddr cc: )\n%&gt;\
-%&lt;{fcc}Fcc: %{fcc}\n%&gt;\
-%&lt;{subject}Subject: Re: %{subject}\n%&gt;\
-%&lt;{date}In-reply-to: Your message of "\
-%&lt;(nodate{date})%{date}%|%(pretty{date})%&gt;."%&lt;{message-id}
- %{message-id}%&gt;\n%&gt;\
---------
-</screen>
-</informalexample></para>
-
-<para>It's in the same basic format as the <filename>components</> file but
-it contains quite a few extra formatting codes. The
-<literal>%(lit)</> command makes room for the address. The
-<literal>%(formataddr</> is a function that returns a proper email
-address. The next part is <literal>%&lt;</literal> which means if and
-the <literal>{reply-to}</> means the reply-to field in the original
-message. So that might be translated this way:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>%&lt;<emphasis remap=bf>if</emphasis> {reply-to} <emphasis remap=bf>the original message has a reply-to</emphasis>
-then give that to formataddr, %? <emphasis remap=bf>else</emphasis> {from} <emphasis remap=bf>take the
-from address</emphasis>, %? <emphasis remap=bf>else</emphasis> {sender} <emphasis remap=bf>take the sender address</emphasis>, %?
-<emphasis remap=bf>else</emphasis> {return-path} <emphasis remap=bf>take the return-path from the original
-message</emphasis>, %&gt; <emphasis remap=bf>endif</emphasis>.</screen>
-</informalexample></para>
-
-<para>As you can tell MH formatting can get rather involved. You can
-probably decipher what most of the other functions and variables
-mean. All of the information on writing these format strings is in the
-MH-Format man page. The really nice thing is that once you have built
-your customized <filename>replcomps</> file you won't need to touch it
-again. No other email program really gives you the power and
-flexibility that MH gives you.</para>

-<chapter>
-<title>Overview</title>
-
-<para>Most people can't fit these operating systems together
-comfortably without having a larger hard disk, so special
-information on large EIDE drives is included. Because there are so
-many combinations of possible operating systems and hard disk
-configurations, the <xref linkend="ch5"> section may be of the most use
-to you. It contains descriptions of specific working computer setups
-that use multiple operating systems.</para>
-
-<para>This document assumes that you have already made room on your
-hard disk for an additional operating system. Any time you
-repartition your hard drive, you run the risk of destroying the data
-on the original partitions. However, if your hard drive is completely
-occupied by DOS, you might find the FIPS utility (included on the
-FreeBSD CD-ROM in the <filename>\TOOLS</filename> directory or via
-<ulink URL="ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/tools">ftp</ulink>)
-useful. It lets you repartition your hard disk without destroying the
-data already on it. There is also a commercial program available
-called Partition Magic, which lets you size and delete partitions
-without consequence.</para>

-<chapter id="ch2">
-<title>Overview of Boot Managers</title>
-
-<para>These are just brief descriptions of some of the different boot
-managers you may encounter. Depending on your computer setup, you may
-find it useful to use more than one of them on the same
-system.</para>
-
-<variablelist>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term>Boot Easy</term>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>This is the default boot manager used with FreeBSD. It has the
-ability to boot most anything, including BSD, OS/2 (HPFS), Windows 95
-(FAT and FAT32), and Linux. Partitions are selected with the
-function keys.</para>
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term>OS/2 Boot Manager</term>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>This will boot FAT, HPFS, FFS (FreeBSD), and EXT2
-(Linux). It will also boot FAT32 partitions. Partitions are
-selected using arrow keys. The OS/2 Boot Manager is the only one to
-use its own separate partition, unlike the others which use the
-master boot record (MBR). Therefore, it must be installed below the
-1024th cylinder to avoid booting problems. It can boot Linux using
-LILO when it is part of the boot sector, not the MBR. Go to <ulink

-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>
-
-<varlistentry>
-<term>OS-BS</term>
-
-<listitem> <para>This is an alternative to Boot Easy. It gives you
-more control over the booting process, with the ability to set the
-default partition to boot and the booting timeout. The beta version
-of this programs allows you to boot by selecting the OS with your
-arrow keys. It is included on the FreeBSD CD in the
-<filename>\TOOLS</filename> directory, and via <ulink

-
-<varlistentry>
-<term>LILO, or LInux LOader</term>

-<para>This is a limited boot manager. Will boot FreeBSD, though some
-customization work is required in the LILO configuration file.</para>

-
-<note id="fat32"><title>About FAT32</title><para>FAT32 is the replacement to
-the FAT filesystem included in Microsoft's OEM SR2 Beta release,
-which is expected to utilitized on computers pre-loaded with Windows
-95 towards the end of 1996. It converts the normal FAT file system
-and allows you to use smaller cluster sizes for larger hard drives.
-FAT32 also modifies the traditional FAT boot sector and allocation
-table, making it incompatible with some boot managers.</para></note>

-<title>A Typical Installation</title>
-
-<para>Let's say I have two large EIDE hard drives, and I want to
-install FreeBSD, Linux, and Windows 95 on them.</para>
-
-<para>Here's how I might do it using these hard disks:
-<itemizedlist>
-
-<listitem>
-<para><filename>/dev/wd0</> (first physical hard disk)</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para><filename>/dev/wd1</> (second hard disk)</para>
-</listitem>
-
-</itemizedlist>
-</para>
-
-<para>Both disks have 1416 cylinders.</para>
-
-<procedure>
-
-<step><para>I boot from a MS-DOS or Windows 95 boot disk that
-contains the <filename>FDISK.EXE</> utility and make a small 50 meg
-primary partition (35-40 for Windows 95, plus a little breathing
-room) on the first disk. Also create a larger partition on the
-second hard disk for my Windows applications and data.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>I reboot and install Windows 95 (easier said than done)
-on the <filename>C:</> partition.</para> </step>
-
-<step><para>The next thing I do is install Linux. I'm not sure about
-all the distributions of Linux, but slackware includes LILO (see
-<xref linkend="ch2">). When I am partitioning out my hard disk with
-Linux <command>fdisk</command>, I would put all of Linux on the first
-drive (maybe 300 megs for a nice root partition and some swap
-space).</para></step>
-
-<step><para>After I install Linux, and are prompted about installing
-LILO, make SURE that I install it on the boot sector of my root
-Linux partition, not in the MBR (master boot record).</para></step>
-
-<step><para>The remaining hard disk space can go to FreeBSD. I also
-make sure that my FreeBSD root slice does not go beyond the 1024th
-cylinder. (The 1024th cylinder is 528 megs into the disk with our
-hypothetical 720MB disks). I will use the rest of the hard drive
-(about 270 megs) for the <filename>/usr</> and <filename>/</> slices
-if I wish. The rest of the second hard disk (size depends on the
-amount of my Windows application/data partition that I created in
-step 1 can go to the <filename>/usr/src</> slice and swap
-space.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>When viewed with the Windows 95 <command>fdisk</> utility, my hard drives
-should now look something like this:

-</chapter>
-
-<chapter id="ch4">
-<title>Special Considerations</title>
-
-<para>Most operating systems are very picky about where and how they are
-placed on the hard disk. Windows 95 and DOS need to be on the first
-primary partitiin on the first hard disk. OS/2 is the exception. It
-can be installed on the first or second disk in a primary or extended
-partition. If you are not sure, keep the beginning of the bootable
-partitions below the 1024th cylinder.</para>
-
-<para>If you install Windows 95 on an existing BSD system, it will
-<quote>destroy</> the MBR, and you will have to reinstall your
-previous boot manager. Boot Easy can be reinstalled by using the
-BOOTINST.EXE utility included in the \TOOLS directory on the CD-ROM,
-and via <ulink
-URL="ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/tools">ftp</ulink>. You can
-also re-start the installation process and go to the partition
-editor. From there, mark the FreeBSD partition as bootable,
-select Boot Manager, and then type W to (W)rite out the information
-to the MBR. You can now reboot, and Boot Easy should then
-recognize Windows 95 as DOS.</para>
-
-<para>Please keep in mind that OS/2 can read FAT and HPFS partitions,
-but not FFS (FreeBSD) or EXT2 (Linux) partitions. Likewise, Windows
-95 can only read and write to FAT and FAT32 (see <xref
-linkend="ch2">) partitions. FreeBSD can read most file systems, but
-currently cannot read HPFS partitions. Linux can read HPFS
-partitions, but can't write to them. Recent versions of the Linux
-kernel (2.x) can read and write to Windows 95 VFAT partitions (VFAT
-is what gives Windows 95 long file names - it's pretty much the same
-as FAT). Linux can read and write to most file systems. Got that?
-I hope so.</para>

-
-<para>FreeBSD+Win95: If you installed FreeBSD after Windows 95, you
-should see <literal>DOS</> on the Boot Easy menu. This is Windows
-95. If you installed Windows 95 after FreeBSD, read <xref
-linkend="ch4"> above. As long as your hard disk does not have 1024
-cylinders you should not have a problem booting. If one of your
-partitions goes beyond the 1024th cylinder however, and you get
-messages like <errorname>invalid system disk</> under DOS (Windows 95)
-and FreeBSD will not boot, try looking for a setting in your BIOS
-called <quote>&gt; 1024 cylinder support</> or <quote>NORMAL/LBA</>
-mode. DOS may need LBA (Logical Block Addressing) in order to boot
-correctly. If the idea of switching BIOS settings every time you
-boot up doesn't appeal to you, you can boot FreeBSD through DOS via
-the <filename>FBSDBOOT.EXE</> utility on the CD (It should find your
-FreeBSD partition and boot it.)</para>
-
-<para>FreeBSD+OS/2+Win95: Nothing new here. OS/2's boot manger

-<title>Technical Details</title>
-
-<para><emphasis>(Contributed by Randall Hopper,
-<email>rhh@ct.picker.com</email>)</emphasis></para>
-
-<para>This section attempts to give you enough basic information
-about your hard disks and the disk booting process so that you can
-troubleshoot most problems you might encounter when getting set up to
-boot several operating systems. It starts in pretty basic terms, so
-you may want to skim down in this section until it begins to look
-unfamiliar and then start reading.</para>
-
-
-<sect1>
-<title>Disk Primer</title>
-
-<para>Three fundamental terms are used to describe the location of
-data on your hard disk: Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors. It's not
-particularly important to know what these terms relate to except to
-know that, together, they identify where data is physically on your
-disk.</para>
-
-<para>Your disk has a particular number of cylinders, number of
-heads, and number of sectors per cylinder-head (a cylinder-head also
-known nown as a track). Collectively this information defines the
-"physical disk geometry" for your hard disk. There are typically 512
-bytes per sector, and 63 sectors per track, with the number of
-cylinders and heads varying widely from disk to disk. Thus you can
-figure the number of bytes of data that'll fit on your own disk by
-calculating: <informalexample><para>(# of cylinders) &times; (#
-heads) &times; (63 sectors/track) &times; (512
-bytes/sect)</></informalexample> For example, on my 1.6 Gig Western
-Digital AC31600 EIDE hard disk,that's: <informalexample><para>(3148
-cyl) &times; (16 heads) &times; (63 sectors/track) &times (512
-bytes/sect)</para></informalexample></para>
-
-<para>which is 1,624,670,208 bytes, or around 1.6 Gig.</para>
-
-<para>You can find out the physical disk geometry (number of
-cylinders, heads, and sectors/track counts) for your hard disks using
-ATAID or other programs off the net. Your hard disk probably came
-with this information as well. Be careful though: if you're using
-BIOS LBA (see <xref linkend="limits">), you can't use just any
-program to get the physical geometry. This is because many programs
-(e.g. <filename>MSD.EXE</> or FreeBSD fdisk) don't identify the
-physical disk geometry; they instead report the
-<firstterm>translated geometry</> (virtual numbers from using LBA).
-Stay tuned for what that means.</para>
-
-<para>One other useful thing about these terms. Given 3
-numbers&mdash;a cylinder number, a head number, and a
-sector-within-track number&mdash;you identify a specific absolute
-sector (a 512 byte block of data) on your disk. Cylinders and Heads
-are numbered up from 0, and Sectors are numbered up from 1.</para>
-
-<para>For those that are interested in more technical details,
-information on disk geometry, boot sectors, BIOSes, etc. can be found
-all over the net. Query Lycos, Yahoo, etc. for <literal>boot
-sector</> or <literal>master boot record</>. Among the useful info
-you'll find are Hale Landis's <citetitle>How It Works</> document
-pack. See the <xref linkend="sources"> section for a few pointers to
-this pack.</para>
-
-<para>Ok, enough terminology. We're talking about booting
-here.</para>
-
-</sect1>
-
-<sect1 id="booting">
-<title>The Booting Process</title>
-
-<para>On the first sector of your disk (Cyl 0, Head 0, Sector 1)
-lives the Master Boot Record (MBR). It contains a map of your disk.
-It identifies up to 4 <firstterm>partitions</>, each of which is a
-contiguous chunk of that disk. FreeBSD calls partitions
-<firstterm>slices</> to avoid confusion with it's own partitions, but
-we won't do that here. Each partition can contain its own operating
-system.</para>
-
-<para>Each partition entry in the MBR has a <firstterm>Partition
-ID</>, a <firstterm>Start Cylinder/Head/Sector</>, and an
-<firstterm>End Cylinder/Head/Sector</>. The Partition ID tells what
-type of partition it is (what OS) and the Start/End tells where it
-is. <xref linkend="tbl-pid"> lists a smattering of some common
-Partition IDs.</para>

-
-<para>Note that not all partitions are bootable (e.g. Extended DOS).
-Some are&mdash;some aren't. What makes a partition bootable is the
-configuration of the <firstterm>Partition Boot Sector</> that exists
-at the beginning of each partition.</para>
-
-<para>When you configure your favorite boot manager, it looks up the entries
-in the MBR partition tables of all your hard disks and lets you name the
-entries in that list. Then when you boot, the boot manager is invoked by
-special code in the Master Boot Sector of the first probed hard disk on
-your system. It looks at the MBR partition table entry corresponding to
-the partition choice you made, uses the Start Cylinder/Head/Sector
-information for that partition, loads up the Partition Boot Sector for that
-partition, and gives it control. That Boot Sector for the partition itself
-contains enough information to start loading the operating system on that
-partition.</para>
-
-<para>One thing we just brushed past that's important to know. All of your
-hard disks have MBRs. However, the one that's important is the one on the
-disk that's first probed by the BIOS. If you have only IDE hard disks, its
-the first IDE disk (e.g. primary disk on first controller). Similarly for
-SCSI only systems. If you have both IDE and SCSI hard disks though, the
-IDE disk is typically probed first by the BIOS, so the first IDE disk is
-the first probed disk. The boot manager you will install will be hooked into
-the MBR on this first probed hard disk that we've just described.</para>

-<para>The first part of the booting process is all done through the
-BIOS, (if that's a new term to you, the BIOS is a software chip on
-your system motherboard which provides startup code for your
-computer). As such, this first part of the process is subject to the
-limitations of the BIOS interface.</para>
-
-<para>The BIOS interface used to read the hard disk during this period
-(INT 13H, Subfunction 2) allocates 10 bits to the Cylinder Number, 8
-bits to the Head Number, and 6 bits to the Sector Number. This
-restricts users of this interface (i.e. boot managers hooked into
-your disk's MBR as well as OS loaders hooked into the Boot Sectors)
-to the following limits:
-<itemizedlist>
-<listitem><para>1024 cylinders, max</para></listitem>
-<listitem><para>256 heads , max</para></listitem>
-<listitem><para>64 cylinders, max (actually 63, <literal>0</> isn't
-available)</para></listitem>
-</itemizedlist>
-</para>
-
-<para>Now big hard disks have lots of cylinders but not a lot of
-heads, so invariably with big hard disks the number of cylinders is
-greater than 1024. Given this and the BIOS interface as is, you
-can't boot off just anywhere on your hard disk. The boot code (the
-boot manager and the OS loader hooked into all bootable partitions'
-Boot Sectors) has to reside below cylinder 1024. In fact, if your
-hard disk is typical and has 16 heads, this equates to:
-<informalexample>
-<para>1024 cyl/disk &times; 16 heads/disk &times; 63 sect/(cyl-head)
-&times; 512 bytes/sector</para>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>which is around the often-mentioned 528MB limit.</para>
-
-<para>This is where BIOS LBA (Logical Block Addressing) comes in. BIOS LBA
-gives the user of the BIOS API calls access to physical cylinders above
-1024 though the BIOS interfaces by redefining a cylinder. That is, it
-remaps your cylinders and heads, making it appear through the BIOS as
-though the disk has fewer cylinders and more heads than it actually
-does. In other words, it takes advantage of the fact that hard disks have
-relatively few heads and lots of cylinders by shifting the balance between
-number of cylinders and number of heads so that both numbers lie below the
-above-mentioned limits (1024 cylinders, 256 heads).</para>
-
-<para>With BIOS LBA, the hard disk size limitation is virtually
-removed (well, pushed up to 8 Gigabytes anyway). If you have an LBA
-BIOS, you can put FreeBSD or any OS anywhere you want and not hit the
-1024 cylinder limit.</para>
-
-<para>To use my 1.6 Gig Western Digital as an example again, it's
-physical geometry is:
-<informalexample>
-<para>(3148 cyl, 16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 512 bytes/sector)</para>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>However, my BIOS LBA remaps this to:
-<informalexample>
-<para>( 787 cyl, 64 heads, 63 sectors/track, 512 bytes/sector)</para>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>giving the same effective size disk, but with cylinder and head
-counts within the BIOS API's range (Incidentally, I have both Linux and
-FreeBSD existing on one of my hard disks above the 1024th physical
-cylinder, and both operating systems boot fine, thanks to BIOS LBA).</para>

-<title>Boot Managers and Disk Allocation</title>
-
-<para>Another gotcha to watch out when installing boot managers is
-allocating space for your boot manager. It's best to be aware of
-this issue up front to save yourself from having to reinstall one or
-more of your OSs.</para>
-
-<para>If you followed the discussion in <xref linkend="booting">
-about the Master Boot Sector (where the MBR is), Partition Boot
-Sectors, and the booting process, you may have been wondering just
-exactly where on your hard disk that nifty boot manager is going to
-live. Well, some boot managers are small enough to fit entirely
-within the Master Boot Sector (Cylinder 0, Head 0, Sector 0) along
-with the partition table. Others need a bit more room and actually
-extend a few sectors past the Master Boot Sector in the Cylinder 0
-Head 0 track, since that's typically free&hellip;typically.</para>
-
-<para>That's the catch. Some operating systems (FreeBSD included) let
-you start their partitions right after the Master Boot Sector at
-Cylinder 0, Head 0, Sector 2 if you want. In fact, if you give
-FreeBSD's sysinstall a disk with an empty chunk up front or the whole
-disk empty, that's where it'll start the FreeBSD partition by default
-(at least it did when I fell into this trap). Then when you go to
-install your boot manager, if it's one that occupies a few extra
-sectors after the MBR, it'll overwrite the front of the first
-partition's data. In the case of FreeBSD, this overwrites the
-disk label, and renders your FreeBSD partition unbootable.</para>
-
-<para>The easy way to avoid this problem (and leave yourself the
-flexibility to try different boot managers later) is just to always
-leave the first full track on your disk unallocated when you
-partition your disk. That is, leave the space from Cylinder 0, Head
-0, Sector 2 through Cylinder 0, Head 0, Sector 63 unallocated, and
-start your first partition at Cylinder 0, Head 1, Sector 1.
-For what it's worth, when you create a DOS partition at the
-front of your disk, DOS leaves this space open by default (this is
-why some boot managers assume it's free). So creating a DOS
-partition up at the front of your disk avoids this problem
-altogether. I like to do this myself, creating 1 Meg DOS partition
-up front, because it also avoids my primary DOS drive letters
-shifting later when I repartition.</para>
-
-<para>For reference, the following boot managers use the
-Master Boot Sector to store their code and data:
-<itemizedlist>

-<para>OS-BS 1.35</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>Boot Easy</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>LILO</para>
-</listitem>
-
-</itemizedlist>
-</para>
-
-<para>These boot managers use a few additional sectors after the
-Master Boot Sector:
-<itemizedlist>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>OS-BS 2.0 Beta 8 (sectors 2-5)</para>
-</listitem>
-
-<listitem>
-<para>OS/2's boot manager</para>
-</listitem>
-
-</itemizedlist>
-</para>

-
-<sect2>
-<title>What if your machine won't boot?</title>
-
-<para>At some point when installing boot managers, you might leave the
-MBR in a state such that your machine won't boot. This is unlikely,
-but possible when re-FDISKing underneath an already-installed boot
-manager.</para>
-
-<para>If you have a bootable DOS partition on your disk, you can boot
-off a DOS floppy, and run:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>A:\> <userinput>FDISK /MBR</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>to put the original, simple DOS boot code back into the system. You can
-then boot DOS (and DOS only) off the hard drive. Alternatively, just
-re-run your boot manager installation program off a bootable floppy.</para>

-user (you)&mdash;and you're probably pretty good with DOS/Windows or

-<chapter>
-<title>Logging in and Getting Out</title>
-
-<para>Log in (when you see <systemitem
-class=prompt>login:</systemitem>) as a user you created during
-installation or as <firstterm>root</firstterm>. (Your FreeBSD
-installation will already have an account for root; root can go
-anywhere and do anything, including deleting essential files, so be
-careful!) The symbols % and # in the following stand for the prompt
-(yours may be different), with % indicating an ordinary user and
-# indicating root. </para>
-
-<para>To log out (and get a new <systemitem class=prompt>login:</systemitem> prompt) type
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>exit</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-as often as necessary. Yes, press <keysym>enter</keysym> after
-commands, and remember that Unix is
-case-sensitive&mdash;<command>exit</command>, not
-<command>EXIT</command>.</para>
-
-<para>To shut down the machine type:
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>/sbin/shutdown -h now</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-Or to reboot type
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>/sbin/shutdown -r now</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-or
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>/sbin/reboot</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>You can also reboot with
-<keycombo><keycap>Ctrl</keycap><keycap>Alt</keycap><keycap>Delete</keycap></keycombo>.
-Give it a little time to do its work. This is equivalent to
-<command>/sbin/reboot</command> in recent releases of FreeBSD, and is
-much, much better than hitting the reset button. You don't want to
-have to reinstall this thing, do you?</para>
-
-</chapter>
-
-<chapter>
-<title>Adding A User with Root Privileges</title>
-
-<para>If you didn't create any users when you installed the system and
-are thus logged in as root, you should probably create a user now with
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>adduser</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-The first time you use adduser, it might ask for some defaults to save. You
-might want to make the default shell csh instead of sh, if it suggests
-sh as the default. Otherwise just press enter to accept each default.
-These defaults are saved in <filename>/etc/adduser.conf</filename>,
-an editable file.</para>
-
-<para>Suppose you create a user <emphasis>jack</emphasis> with
-full name <emphasis>Jack Benimble</emphasis>. Give jack a password
-if security (even kids around who might pound on the keyboard) is an
-issue. When it asks you if you want to invite jack into other
-groups, type <userinput>wheel</userinput>
-<informalexample>
-<screen>Login group is ``jack''. Invite jack into other groups: <userinput>wheel</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-This will make it possible to log in as <emphasis>jack</emphasis> and
-use the <command>su</command> command to become root. Then you won't
-get scolded any more for logging in as root.</para>
-
-<para>You can quit <command>adduser</command> any time by typing
-<keycombo><keycap>Ctrl</keycap><keycap>C</keycap></keycombo>, and at
-the end you'll have a chance to approve your new user or simply type
-<keycap>n</keycap> for no. You might want to create a
-second new user (jill?) so that when you edit jack's login files,
-you'll have a hot spare in case something goes wrong.</para>
-
-<para>Once you've done this, use <command>exit</command>
-to get back to a login prompt and log in as
-<emphasis>jack</emphasis>. In general, it's a good idea to do as
-much work as possible as an ordinary user who doesn't have the
-power&mdash;and risk&mdash;of root.</para>
-
-<para>If you already created a user and you want the user to be able
-to <command>su</command> to root, you can log in as root
-and edit the file <filename>/etc/group</filename>, adding jack to the
-first line (the group wheel). But first you need to practice
-<command>vi</command>, the text editor--or use the simpler text
-editor, <command>ee</command>, installed on recent version of
-FreeBSD.</para>
-
-<para>To delete a user, use the <command>rmuser</command> command.</para>

-another <firstterm>virtual console</firstterm>, and log in again.
-After all, it's a multi-user, multi-tasking system. Nevertheless
-these commands will probably flash messages on your screen while
-they're running; you can type <command>clear</command> at the prompt
-to clear the screen. Once they've run, you might want to look at
-<filename>/var/mail/root</filename> and
-<filename>/var/log/messages</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>Basically running such commands is part of system
-administration&mdash;and as a single user of a Unix system, you're
-your own system administrator. Virtually everything you need to be
-root to do is system administration. Such responsibilities aren't
-covered very well even in those big fat books on Unix, which seem to
-devote a lot of space to pulling down menus in windows managers. You
-might want to get one of the two leading books on systems
-administration, either Evi Nemeth et.al.'s <citetitle>UNIX System
-Administration Handbook</citetitle> (Prentice-Hall, 1995, ISBN
-0-13-15051-7)&mdash;the second edition with the red cover; or
-&AElig;leen Frisch's <citetitle>Essential System
-Administration</citetitle> (O'Reilly &amp; Associates, 1993, ISBN
-0-937175-80-3). I used Nemeth.</para>

-<chapter>
-<title>Editing Text</title>
-
-<para>To configure your system, you need to edit text files. Most of
-them will be in the <filename>/etc</filename> directory; and you'll
-need to <command>su</command> to root to be able to change them. You
-can use the easy <command>ee</command>, but in the long run the
-text editor <command>vi</command> is worth learning. There's an
-excellent tutorial on vi in
-<filename>/usr/src/contrib/nvi/docs/tutorial</filename> if you have
-that installed; otherwise you can get it by ftp to
-ftp.cdrom.com in the directory
-FreeBSD/FreeBSD-current/src/contrib/nvi/docs/tutorial.</para>
-
-<para>Before you edit a
-file, you should probably back it up. Suppose you want to edit
-<filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename>. You could just use <command>cd
-/etc</command> to get to the <filename>/etc</filename> directory and
-do:
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>cp rc.conf rc.conf.orig</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-
-This would copy <filename>rc.conf</filename> to
-<filename>rc.conf.orig</filename>, and you could later copy
-<filename>rc.conf.orig</filename> to <emphasis
-remap=tt>rc.conf</emphasis> to recover the original. But even
-better would be moving (renaming) and then copying back:
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>mv rc.conf rc.conf.orig</userinput>
-# <userinput>cp rc.conf.orig rc.conf</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-
-because the <command>mv</command> command preserves the original date
-and owner of the file. You can now edit
-<filename>rc.conf</filename>. If you want the original back, you'd
-then <userinput>mv rc.conf rc.conf.myedit</userinput>
-(assuming you want to preserve your edited version) and then
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>mv rc.conf.orig rc.conf</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-to put things back the way they were.</para>
-
-<para>To edit a file, type
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>vi <replaceable>filename</replaceable></userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-Move through the text with the arrow keys. <keycap>Esc</keycap> (the
-escape key) puts <command>vi</command> in command mode. Here are some
-commands:
-<variablelist>
-<varlistentry><term><command>x</command></term>
-<listitem>
-<para>delete letter the cursor is on</para>
-
-</listitem>
-</varlistentry>

-complex, and sometimes you'll inadvertently issue a command that will
-do something you don't expect. (Some people actually like
-<command>vi</>&mdash;it's more powerful than DOS EDIT&mdash;find out
-about the <command>:r</> command.) Use <keycap>Esc</> one or

-when it gives you trouble, save often with <command>:w</>, and
-use <command>:q!</> to get out and start over (from

-
-<para>Now you can <command>cd</> to <filename>/etc</filename>,

-has root privileges. Just add a comma and the user's login name to
-the end of the first line in the file, press <keycap>Esc</>, and use
-<command>:wq</> to write the file to disk and quit. Instantly
-effective. (You didn't put a space after the comma, did you?)</para>

-<title>Printing Files from DOS</title>
-
-<para>At this point you probably don't have the printer working, so here's a
-way to create a file from a man page, move it to a floppy, and then
-print it from DOS. Suppose you want to read carefully about changing
-permissions on files (pretty important). You can use the command
-man chmod to read about it. The command
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>man chmod | col -b &gt; chmod.txt</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-will remove formatting codes and send the man page to
-the <filename>chmod.txt</filename> file
-instead of showing it on your screen. Now put a dos-formatted
-diskette in your floppy drive a, <command>su</> to
-root, and type
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>/sbin/mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-to mount the floppy drive on <filename>/mnt</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>Now (you no longer need to be root, and you can type
-<command>exit</> to get back to being user jack) you can go to the
-directory where you created chmod.txt and copy the file to the floppy
-with:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>% <userinput>cp chmod.txt /mnt</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-and use <command>ls /mnt</command> to get a directory listing of
-<filename>/mnt</filename>, which should show the file
-<filename>chmod.txt</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>You might especially want to make a file from
-<filename>/sbin/dmesg</filename> by typing
-<informalexample>
-<screen>% <userinput>/sbin/dmesg &gt; dmesg.txt</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-and copying <filename>dmesg.txt</filename> to the floppy.
-<command>/sbin/dmesg</command> is the boot log record, and it's
-useful to understand it because it shows what FreeBSD found when it
-booted up. If you ask questions on
-<email>freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.ORG</> or on a USENET
-group&mdash;like <quote>FreeBSD isn't finding my tape drive, what do
-I do?</quote>&mdash;people will want to know what <command>dmesg</>
-has to say.</para>
-
-<para>You can now dismount the floppy drive (as root) to get the disk
-out with
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>/sbin/umount /mnt</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-and reboot to go to DOS. Copy these files to a DOS directory, call
-them up with DOS EDIT, Windows Notepad or Wordpad, or a word processor, make a
-minor change so the file has to be saved, and print as you normally
-would from DOS or Windows. Hope it works! man pages come out best if
-printed with the dos <command>print</> command. (Copying files from
-FreeBSD to a mounted dos partition is in some cases still a little
-risky.)</para>
-
-<para>Getting the printer printing from FreeBSD involves creating an
-appropriate entry in <filename>/etc/printcap</filename> and creating
-a matching spool directory in
-<filename>/var/spool/output</filename>. If your printer is on
-<hardware>lpt0</> (what dos calls <hardware>LPT1</>), you may only
-need to go to <filename>/var/spool/output</filename> and (as root)
-create the directory <filename>lpd</> by typing:
-<command>
-mkdir lpd</command>, if it doesn't already
-exist.
-Then the printer should respond if it's turned on when the system is
-booted, and lp or lpr should send a file to the printer. Whether or
-not the file actually prints depends on configuring it, which is
-covered in the <ulink
-URL="http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/handbook.html">FreeBSD
-handbook.</></para>

-<chapter>
-<title>Next Steps</title>
-
-<para>You should now have the tools you need to get around and edit
-files, so you can get everything up and running. There is a great
-deal of information in the FreeBSD handbook (which is probably on
-your hard drive) and <ulink URL="http://www.freebsd.org/">FreeBSD's
-web site</ulink>. A wide variety of packages and ports are on the
-<ulink URL="http://www.cdrom.com/">Walnut Creek</ulink> CDROM as well
-as the web site. The handbook tells you more about how to use them
-(get the package if it exists, with <command>pkg_add
-/cdrom/packages/All/<replaceable>packagename</></>,
-where <replaceable>packagename</replaceable> is the filename of the
-package). The cdrom has lists of the packages and ports with brief
-descriptions in <filename>cdrom/packages/index</filename>,
-<filename>cdrom/packages/index.txt</filename>, and
-<filename>cdrom/ports/index</filename>, with fuller descriptions in
-<filename>/cdrom/ports/*/*/pkg/DESCR</filename>, where the
-<literal>*</literal>s represent subdirectories of kinds of programs
-and program names respectively.</para>
-
-<para>If you find the handbook too sophisticated (what with
-<command>lndir</> and all) on installing ports from the cdrom,
-here's what usually works:</para>
-
-<para>Find the port you want, say <command>kermit</>. There will be
-a directory for it on the cdrom. Copy the subdirectory to
-<filename>/usr/local</filename> (a good place for software you add
-that should be available to all users) with:
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>cp -R /cdrom/ports/comm/kermit /usr/local</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-
-This should result in a <filename>/usr/local/kermit</filename>
-subdirectory that has all the files that the
-<command>kermit</command> subdirectory on the CDROM has.</para>
-
-<para>Next, create the directory <filename>/usr/ports/distfiles</filename>
-if it doesn't already exist using <command>mkdir</>. Now check
-check <filename>/cdrom/ports/distfiles</filename> for a
-file with a name that indicates it's the port you want. Copy that
-file to <filename>/usr/ports/distfiles</filename>; in recent versions
-you can skip this step, as FreeBSD will do it for you.
-In the case of <command>kermit</>, there is no
-distfile.</para>
-
-<para>Then <command>cd</> to the subdirectory of
-<filename>/usr/local/kermit</filename> that has the file
-<filename>Makefile</>. Type
-<informalexample>
-<screen># <userinput>make all install</></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>During this process the port will ftp to get any compressed
-files it needs that it didn't find on the cdrom or in
-<filename>/usr/ports/distfiles</filename>. If you don't have your
-network running yet and there was no file for the port in
-<filename>/cdrom/ports/distfiles</filename>, you will have to get
-the distfile using another machine and copy it to
-<filename>/usr/ports/distfiles</filename> from a floppy or your dos
-partition. Read <filename>Makefile</> (with <command>cat</> or
-<command>more</> or <command>view</>) to find out where to go (the
-master distribution site) to get the file and what its name is. Its
-name will be truncated when downloaded to DOS, and after you get it
-into <filename>/usr/ports/distfiles</filename> you'll have to rename
-it (with the <command>mv</> command) to its original name so it can
-be found. (Use binary file transfers!) Then go back to
-<filename>/usr/local/kermit</filename>, find the directory with
-<filename>Makefile</>, and type <command>make all install</>.</para>
-
-<para>The other thing that happens when installing ports or packages
-is that some other program is needed. If the installation stops with
-a message <errorname>can't find unzip</errorname> or whatever, you
-might need to install the package or port for unzip before you
-continue.</para>
-
-<para>Once it's installed type <command>rehash</> to make FreeBSD
-reread the files in the path so it knows what's there. (If you get a
-lot of <errorname>path not found</> messages when you use
-<command>whereis</> or which, you might want to make additions to the
-list of directories in the path statement in
-<filename>.cshrc</filename> in your home directory. The path
-statement in Unix does the same kind of work it does in DOS, except
-the current directory is not (by default) in the path for security
-reasons; if the command you want is in the directory you're in, you
-need to type <filename>./</filename> before the command to make it
-work; no space after the slash.)</para>
-
-<para>You might want to get the most recent version of Netscape from
-their <ulink URL="ftp://ftp.netscape.com">ftp site</ulink>. (Netscape
-requires the X Window System.) There's now a FreeBSD version, so look
-around carefully. Just use <command>gunzip
-<replaceable>filename</></> and <command>tar xvf
-<replaceable>filename</></> on it, move the binary to
-<filename>/usr/local/bin</filename> or some other place binaries are
-kept, <command>rehash</>, and then put the following lines in
-<filename>.cshrc</filename> in each user's home directory or (easier)
-in <filename>/etc/csh.cshrc</filename>, the system-wide csh start-up
-file:
-<informalexample>
-<programlisting>setenv XKEYSYMDB /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XKeysymDB
-setenv XNLSPATH /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/nls</>
-</informalexample>
-This assumes that the file <filename>XKeysymDB</> and the directory
-<filename>nls</> are in <filename>/usr/X11R6/lib/X11</filename>; if
-they're not, find them and put them there.</para>
-
-<para>If you originally got Netscape as a port using the CDROM (or
-ftp), don't replace <filename>/usr/local/bin/netscape</filename> with
-the new netscape binary; this is just a shell script that sets up the
-environmental variables for you. Instead rename the new binary to
-<filename>netscape.bin</filename> and replace the old binary, which
-is <filename>/usr/local/lib/netscape/netscape.bin</filename>.</para>

-<title>Your Working Environment</title>
-
-<para>Your shell is the most important part of your working environment.
-In DOS, the usual shell is command.com. The shell is what interprets
-the commands you type on the command line, and thus communicates with
-the rest of the operating system. You can also write shell
-scripts, which are like DOS batch files: a series of commands to be
-run without your intervention.</para>
-
-<para>Two shells come installed with FreeBSD: csh and sh. csh is good for
-command-line work, but scripts should be written with sh (or bash). You can
-find out what shell you have by typing <command>echo $SHELL</command>.</para>
-
-<para>The csh shell is okay, but tcsh does everything csh does and more. It
-It allows you to recall commands with the arrow keys and edit them.
-It has tab-key completion
-of filenames (csh uses the escape key), and it lets you switch to the
-directory you were last in with <command>cd -</command>. It's also much
-easier to alter your prompt with tcsh. It makes life a lot easier.</para>
-
-<para>Here are the three steps for installing a new shell:</para>
-
-<para> 1. Install the shell as a port or a package, just as you
-would any other port or package. Use <command>rehash</command> and
-<command>which tcsh</command> (assuming you're installing tcsh) to
-make sure it got installed.</para>
-
-<para> 2. As root, edit <filename>/etc/shells</filename>, adding
-a line in the file for the new shell, in this case /usr/local/bin/tcsh,
-and save the file. (Some ports may do this for you.)</para>
-
-<para> 3. Use the <command>chsh</command> command to change your shell to
-tcsh permanently, or type <command>tcsh</command> at the prompt to
-change your shell without logging in again.</para>
-
-<para><emphasis>Note: It can be dangerous to change root's shell</emphasis>
-to something other than sh or csh on early versions of FreeBSD and many
-other versions of Unix; you may not have a working shell when the system
-puts you into single user mode. The solution is to use <command>su -m</command>
-to become root, which will give you the tcsh as root, because the shell is part
-of the environment. You can make this permanent by adding it to your
-<filename>.tcshrc</filename> file as an alias with <programlisting>alias su su -m.</></para>
-
-<para>When tcsh starts up, it will read the
-<filename>/etc/csh.cshrc</filename> and <filename>/etc/csh.login</filename>
-files, as does csh. It will also read the
-<filename>.login</filename> file in your home directory and the
-<filename>.cshrc</filename>
-file as well, unless you provide a <filename>.tcshrc</filename>
-file. This you can do by simply copying <filename>.cshrc</filename>
-to <filename>.tcshrc</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>Now that you've installed tcsh, you can adjust your prompt. You can
-find the details in the manual page for tcsh, but here is a line to
-put in your <filename>.tcshrc</filename> that will tell you how many
-commands you have typed, what time it is, and what directory you are in.
-It also produces a <literal>></literal> if you're an ordinary user and
-a <literal>#</literal> if you're root, but tsch will do that in any
-case:</para>
-<para>
- set prompt = "%h %t %~ %# "</para>
-
-<para>This should go in the same place as the existing set prompt line
-if there is one, or under "if($?prompt) then" if not.
-Comment out the old line; you can always switch back to it if you prefer
-it. Don't forget the spaces and quotes. You can get the <filename>.tcshrc</filename> reread by typing <command>source .tcshrc</command>.</para>
-
-<para>You can get a listing of other environmental variables that
-have been set by typing <command>env</command> at the prompt. The
-result will show you your default editor, pager, and terminal type,
-among possibly many others. A useful command if you log in from a
-remote location and can't run a program because the terminal isn't
-capable is
-<command>setenv TERM vt100</command>.</para>
-</chapter>
-
-
-<chapter>
-<title>Other</title>
-
-<para>As root, you can dismount the CDROM with <command>/sbin/umount
-/cdrom</>, take it out of the drive, insert another one, and mount it
-with <command>/sbin/mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0a /cdrom</> assuming
-<hardware>cd0a</> is the device name for your CDROM drive. The
-most recent versions of FreeBSD let you mount the cdrom with just
-<command>/sbin/mount /cdrom</command>.</para>
-
-<para>Using the live file system&mdash;the second of FreeBSD's CDROM
-disks&mdash;is useful if you've got limited space. What is on the
-live file system varies from release to release. You might try
-playing games from the cdrom. This
-involves using <command>lndir</>, which gets installed with the X
-Window System, to tell the program(s) where to find the necessary
-files, because they're in the <filename>/cdrom</filename> file system
-instead of in <filename>/usr</filename> and its subdirectories, which
-is where they're expected to be. Read <command>man lndir</>.</para>

-<title>Introduction<anchor id=foo></title>
-
-<para>FreeBSD offers an excellent development environment. Compilers
-for C, C++, and Fortran and an assembler come with the basic system,
-not to mention a Perl interpreter and classic Unix tools such as
-<command>sed</> and <command>awk</>. If that is not enough, there are
-many more compilers and interpreters in the Ports collection. FreeBSD
-is very compatible with standards such as <acronym>POSIX</> and
-<acronym>ANSI</> C, as well with its own BSD heritage, so it is
-possible to write applications that will compile and run with little
-or no modification on a wide range of platforms.</para>
-
-<para>However, all this power can be rather overwhelming at first if
-you've never written programs on a Unix platform before. This
-document aims to help you get up and running, without getting too
-deeply into more advanced topics. The intention is that this document
-should give you enough of the basics to be able to make some sense of
-the documentation.</para>
-
-<para>Most of the document requires little or no knowledge of
-programming, although it does assume a basic competence with using
-Unix and a willingness to learn!</para>

-<title>Introduction to Programming</title>
-
-<para>A program is a set of instructions that tell the computer to do
-various things; sometimes the instruction it has to perform depends
-on what happened when it performed a previous instruction. This
-section gives an overview of the two main ways in which you can give
-these instructions, or <quote>commands</quote> as they are usually
-called. One way uses an <firstterm>interpreter</>, the other a
-<firstterm>compiler</>. As human languages are too difficult for a
-computer to understand in an unambiguous way, commands are usually
-written in one or other languages specially designed for the
-purpose.</para>
-
-
-
-<sect1>
-<title>Interpreters</title>
-
-<para>With an interpreter, the language comes as an environment, where you
-type in commands at a prompt and the environment executes them for
-you. For more complicated programs, you can type the commands into a
-file and get the interpreter to load the file and execute the commands
-in it. If anything goes wrong, many interpreters will drop you into a
-debugger to help you track down the problem.</para>
-
-<para>The advantage of this is that you can see the results of your
-commands immediately, and mistakes can be corrected readily. The
-biggest disadvantage comes when you want to share your programs with
-someone. They must have the same interpreter, or you must have some
-way of giving it to them, and they need to understand how to use it.
-Also users may not appreciate being thrown into a debugger if they
-press the wrong key! From a performance point of view, interpreters
-can use up a lot of memory, and generally do not generate code as
-efficiently as compilers.</para>
-
-<para>In my opinion, interpreted languages are the best way to start
-if you have not done any programming before. This kind of environment
-is typically found with languages like Lisp, Smalltalk, Perl and
-Basic. It could also be argued that the Unix shell (<command>sh</>,
-<command>csh</>) is itself an interpreter, and many people do in fact
-write shell <quote>scripts</quote> to help with various
-<quote>housekeeping</> tasks on their machine. Indeed, part of the
-original Unix philosophy was to provide lots of small utility
-programs that could be linked together in shell scripts to perform
-useful tasks.</para>

-<title>Compilers</title>
-
-<para>Compilers are rather different. First of all, you write your
-code in a file (or files) using an editor. You then run the compiler
-and see if it accepts your program. If it did not compile, grit your
-teeth and go back to the editor; if it did compile and gave you a
-program, you can run it either at a shell command prompt or in a
-debugger to see if it works properly.<footnote><para>If you run it in
-the shell, you may get a core dump.</para></footnote></para>
-
-<para>Obviously, this is not quite as direct as using an interpreter.
-However it allows you to do a lot of things which are very difficult
-or even impossible with an interpreter, such as writing code which
-interacts closely with the operating system&mdash;or even writing
-your own operating system! It's also useful if you need to write very
-efficient code, as the compiler can take its time and optimise the
-code, which would not be acceptable in an interpreter. And
-distributing a program written for a compiler is usually more
-straightforward than one written for an interpreter&mdash;you can just
-give them a copy of the executable, assuming they have the same
-operating system as you.</para>
-
-<para>Compiled languages include Pascal, C and C++. C and C++ are rather
-unforgiving languages, and best suited to more experienced
-programmers; Pascal, on the other hand, was designed as an educational
-language, and is quite a good language to start with. Unfortunately,
-FreeBSD doesn't have any Pascal support, except for a Pascal-to-C
-converter in the ports.</para>
-
-<para>As the edit-compile-run-debug cycle is rather tedious when
-using separate programs, many commercial compiler makers have
-produced Integrated Development Environments (<acronym>IDE</acronym>s
-for short). FreeBSD does not have an <acronym>IDE</> as such; however
-it is possible to use Emacs for this purpose. This is discussed in
-<xref linkend="emacs">.</para>

-<title>Compiling with <command>cc</command></title>
-
-<para>This section deals only with the GNU compiler for C and C++,
-since that comes with the base FreeBSD system. It can be invoked by
-either <command>cc</> or <command>gcc</>. The details of producing a
-program with an interpreter vary considerably between interpreters,
-and are usually well covered in the documentation and on-line help
-for the interpreter.</para>
-
-<para>Once you've written your masterpiece, the next step is to convert it
-into something that will (hopefully!) run on FreeBSD. This usually
-involves several steps, each of which is done by a separate
-program.</para>

-<para>The word <firstterm>compiling</> is often used to refer to just

-</informalexample>

-

-</informalexample></para>

- f = pow(2.1, 6);

-2.1 ^ 6 = 1023.000000</screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>This is <emphasis>not</emphasis> the right answer! What is
-going on?</para>
-
-<para>A. When the compiler sees you call a function, it checks if it
-has already seen a prototype for it. If it has not, it assumes the
-function returns an <type>int</type>, which is
-definitely not what you want here.</para>
-
-<para>Q. So how do I fix this?</para>
-
-<para>A. The prototypes for the mathematical functions are in
-<filename>math.h</filename>. If you include this file, the compiler
-will be able to find the prototype and it will stop doing strange
-things to your calculation!
-<informalexample>

-
-<para>Q. I compiled a file called <filename>foobar.c</filename> and I
-cannot find an executable called <filename>foobar</filename>. Where's
-it gone?</para>
-
-<para>A. Remember, <command>cc</command> will call the executable
-<filename>a.out</filename> unless you tell it differently. Use the
-<option>-o&nbsp;<replaceable>filename</replaceable></option> option:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>$ <userinput>cc -o foobar foobar.c</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-</para>
-
-<para>Q. OK, I have an executable called <filename>foobar</filename>,
-I can see it when I run <command>ls</command>, but when I type in
-<command>foobar</command> at the command prompt it tells me there is
-no such file. Why can it not find it?</para>
-
-<para>A. Unlike <trademark>MS-DOS</trademark>, Unix does not look in the
-current directory when it is trying to find out which executable you
-want it to run, unless you tell it to. Either type
-<command>./foobar</command>, which means <quote>run the file called
-<filename>foobar</filename> in the current directory</quote>, or
-change your <systemitem class=environvar>PATH</systemitem>
-environment variable so that it looks something like
-<informalexample>
-<screen>bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:.</screen>
-</informalexample>
-The dot at the end means <quote>look in the current directory if it is not in
-any of the others</quote>.</para>
-
-<para>Q. I called my executable <filename>test</filename>, but
-nothing happens when I run it. What is going on?</para>
-
-<para>A. Most Unix systems have a program called
-<command>test</command> in <filename>/usr/bin</filename> and the
-shell is picking that one up before it gets to checking the current
-directory. Either type:
-<informalexample>
-<screen>$ <userinput>./test</userinput></screen>
-</informalexample>
-or choose a better name for your program!</para>
-
-<para>Q. I compiled my program and it seemed to run all right at
-first, then there was an error and it said something about <errorname>core
-dumped</errorname>. What does that mean?</para>
-
-<para>A. The name <firstterm>core dump</firstterm> dates back to the
-very early days of Unix, when the machines used core memory for
-storing data. Basically, if the program failed under certain
-conditions, the system would write the contents of core memory to
-disk in a file called <filename>core</filename>, which the programmer
-could then pore over to find out what went wrong.</para>
-
-<para>Q. Fascinating stuff, but what I am supposed to do now?</para>
-
-<para>A. Use <command>gdb</command> to analyse the core (see <xref
-linkend="debugging">).</para>
-
-<para>Q. When my program dumped core, it said something about a
-<errorname>segmentation fault</errorname>. What's that?</para>
-
-<para>A. This basically means that your program tried to perform some sort
-of illegal operation on memory; Unix is designed to protect the
-operating system and other programs from rogue programs.</para>
-
-<para>Common causes for this are:

-compilers are more tolerant than others, which is why programs
-that ran well on one system can crash when you try them on an
-another.</para>
-
-<para>Q. Sometimes when I get a core dump it says <errorname>bus
-error</errorname>. It says in my Unix book that this means a hardware
-problem, but the computer still seems to be working. Is this
-true?</para>
-
-<para>A. No, fortunately not (unless of course you really do have a hardware
-problem&hellip;). This is usually another way of saying that you
-accessed memory in a way you shouldn't have.</para>
-
-<para>Q. This dumping core business sounds as though it could be quite
-useful, if I can make it happen when I want to. Can I do this, or
-do I have to wait until there's an error?</para>
-
-<para>A. Yes, just go to another console or xterm, do
-<screen>$ <userinput>ps</userinput></screen>
-to find out the process ID of your program, and do
-<screen>$ <userinput>kill -ABRT <replaceable>pid</replaceable></userinput></screen>
-where <parameter><replaceable>pid</replaceable></parameter> is the
-process ID you looked up.</para>
-
-<para>This is useful if your program has got stuck in an infinite
-loop, for instance. If your program happens to trap
-<symbol>SIGABRT</symbol>, there are several other signals which have
-a similar effect.</para>

-<title>What is <command>make</command>?</title>
-
-<para>When you're working on a simple program with only one or two source
-files, typing in
-<screen>$ <userinput>cc file1.c file2.c</userinput></screen>
-is not too bad, but it quickly becomes very tedious when there are
-several files&mdash;and it can take a while to compile, too.</para>
-
-<para>One way to get around this is to use object files and only recompile
-the source file if the source code has changed. So we could have
-something like:
-<screen>$ <userinput>cc file1.o file2.o</userinput> &hellip; <userinput>file37.c</userinput> &hellip</screen>
-if we'd changed <filename>file37.c</filename>, but not any of the
-others, since the last time we compiled. This may speed up the
-compilation quite a bit, but doesn't solve the typing
-problem.</para>
-
-<para>Or we could write a shell script to solve the typing problem, but it
-would have to re-compile everything, making it very inefficient on a
-large project.</para>
-
-<para>What happens if we have hundreds of source files lying about? What if
-we're working in a team with other people who forget to tell us when
-they've changed one of their source files that we use?</para>
-
-<para>Perhaps we could put the two solutions together and write something
-like a shell script that would contain some kind of magic rule saying
-when a source file needs compiling. Now all we need now is a program
-that can understand these rules, as it's a bit too complicated for the
-shell.</para>
-
-<para>This program is called <command>make</command>. It reads in a
-file, called a <firstterm>makefile</firstterm>, that tells it how
-different files depend on each other, and works out which files need
-to be re-compiled and which ones don't. For example, a rule could say
-something like <quote>if <filename>fromboz.o</filename> is older than
-<filename>fromboz.c</filename>, that means someone must have changed
-<filename>fromboz.c</filename>, so it needs to be
-re-compiled.</quote> The makefile also has rules telling make
-<emphasis>how</emphasis> to re-compile the source file, making it a
-much more powerful tool.</para>
-
-<para>Makefiles are typically kept in the same directory as the
-source they apply to, and can be called
-<filename>makefile</filename>, <filename>Makefile</filename> or
-<filename>MAKEFILE</filename>. Most programmers use the name
-<filename>Makefile</filename>, as this puts it near the top of a
-directory listing, where it can easily be seen.<footnote><para>They
-don't use the <filename>MAKEFILE</filename> form as block capitals
-are often used for documentation files like
-<filename>README</filename>.</para></footnote></para>

-<title>Example of using <command>make</command></title>
-
-<para>Here's a very simple make file:
-<programlisting>foo: foo.c
- cc -o foo foo.c</programlisting>
-It consists of two lines, a dependency line and a creation line.</para>
-
-<para>The dependency line here consists of the name of the program
-(known as the <firstterm>target</firstterm>), followed by a colon,
-then whitespace, then the name of the source file. When
-<command>make</command> reads this line, it looks to see if
-<filename>foo</filename> exists; if it exists, it compares the time
-<filename>foo</filename> was last modified to the time
-<filename>foo.c</filename> was last modified. If
-<filename>foo</filename> does not exist, or is older than
-<filename>foo.c</filename>, it then looks at the creation line to
-find out what to do. In other words, this is the rule for working out
-when <filename>foo.c</filename> needs to be re-compiled.</para>
-
-<para>The creation line starts with a <token>tab</token> (press the
-<keycap>tab</keycap> key) and then the command you would type to
-create <filename>foo</filename> if you were doing it at a command
-prompt. If <filename>foo</filename> is out of date, or does not
-exist, <command>make</command> then executes this command to create
-it. In other words, this is the rule which tells make how to
-re-compile <filename>foo.c</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>So, when you type <userinput>make</userinput>, it will make
-sure that <filename>foo</filename> is up to date with respect to your
-latest changes to <filename>foo.c</filename>. This principle can be
-extended to <filename>Makefile</filename>s with hundreds of
-targets&mdash;in fact, on FreeBSD, it is possible to compile the
-entire operating system just by typing <userinput>make
-world</userinput> in the appropriate directory!</para>
-
-<para>Another useful property of makefiles is that the targets don't have
-to be programs. For instance, we could have a make file that looks
-like this:
-<programlisting>foo: foo.c
- cc -o foo foo.c
-
-install:
- cp foo /home/me</programlisting></para>
-
-<para>We can tell make which target we want to make by typing:
-<screen>$ <userinput>make <replaceable>target</replaceable></userinput></screen>
-<command>make</command> will then only look at that target and ignore any
-others. For example, if we type <userinput>make foo</userinput> with the
-makefile above, make will ignore the <action>install</action> target.</para>
-
-<para>If we just type <userinput>make</userinput> on its own, make
-will always look at the first target and then stop without looking at
-any others. So if we typed <userinput>make</userinput> here, it will
-just go to the <action>foo</action> target, re-compile
-<filename>foo</filename> if necessary, and then stop without going on
-to the <action>install</action> target.</para>
-
-<para>Notice that the <action>install</action> target doesn't
-actually depend on anything! This means that the command on the
-following line is always executed when we try to make that target by
-typing <userinput>make install</userinput>. In this case, it will
-copy <filename>foo</filename> into the user's home directory. This is
-often used by application makefiles, so that the application can be
-installed in the correct directory when it has been correctly
-compiled.</para>
-
-<para>This is a slightly confusing subject to try and explain. If you
-don't quite understand how <command>make</command> works, the best
-thing to do is to write a simple program like <quote>hello
-world</quote> and a make file like the one above and experiment. Then
-progress to using more than one source file, or having the source
-file include a header file. The <command>touch</command> command is
-very useful here&mdash;it changes the date on a file without you
-having to edit it.</para>

-<title>FreeBSD Makefiles</title>
-
-<para>Makefiles can be rather complicated to write. Fortunately,
-BSD-based systems like FreeBSD come with some very powerful ones as
-part of the system. One very good example of this is the FreeBSD
-ports system. Here's the essential part of a typical ports
-<filename>Makefile</filename>:
-<programlisting>MASTER_SITES= ftp://freefall.cdrom.com/pub/FreeBSD/LOCAL_PORTS/
-DISTFILES= scheme-microcode+dist-7.3-freebsd.tgz
-
-.include &lt;bsd.port.mk&gt;</programlisting></para>
-
-<para>Now, if we go to the directory for this port and type
-<userinput>make</userinput>, the following happens:</para>
-
-<procedure>
-<step><para>A check is made to see if the source code for this port is
-already on the system.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>If it isn't, an FTP connection to the URL in
-<symbol>MASTER_SITES</symbol> is set up to download the
-source.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>The checksum for the source is calculated and compared it with
-one for a known, good, copy of the source. This is to make sure that
-the source was not corrupted while in transit.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>Any changes required to make the source work on FreeBSD are
-applied&mdash;this is known as <firstterm>patching</firstterm>.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>Any special configuration needed for the source is done.
-(Many Unix program distributions try to work out which version of
-Unix they are being compiled on and which optional Unix features are
-present&mdash;this is where they are given the information in the
-FreeBSD ports scenario).</para></step>
-
-<step><para>The source code for the program is compiled. In effect,
-we change to the directory where the source was unpacked and do
-<command>make</command>&mdash;the program's own make file has the
-necessary information to build the program.</para></step>
-
-<step><para>We now have a compiled version of the program. If we
-wish, we can test it now; when we feel confident about the program,
-we can type <userinput>make install</userinput>. This will cause the
-program and any supporting files it needs to be copied into the
-correct location; an entry is also made into a <database>package
-database</database>, so that the port can easily be uninstalled later
-if we change our mind about it.</para></step>
-
-</procedure>
-
-<para>Now I think you'll agree that's rather impressive for a four
-line script!</para>
-
-<para>The secret lies in the last line, which tells
-<command>make</command> to look in the system makefile called
-<filename>bsd.port.mk</filename>. It's easy to overlook this line,
-but this is where all the clever stuff comes from&mdash;someone has
-written a makefile that tells <command>make</command> to do all the
-things above (plus a couple of other things I didn't mention,
-including handling any errors that may occur) and anyone can get
-access to that just by putting a single line in their own make
-file!</para>
-
-<para>If you want to have a look at these system makefiles, they're
-in <filename>/usr/share/mk</filename>, but it's probably best to wait
-until you've had a bit of practice with makefiles, as they are very
-complicated (and if you do look at them, make sure you have a flask
-of strong coffee handy!)</para>

-<title>More advanced uses of <command>make</command></title>
-
-<para><command>Make</command> is a very powerful tool, and can do much
-more than the simple example above shows. Unfortunately, there are
-several different versions of <command>make</command>, and they all
-differ considerably. The best way to learn what they can do is
-probably to read the documentation&mdash;hopefully this introduction will
-have given you a base from which you can do this.</para>
-
-<para>The version of make that comes with FreeBSD is the <application>Berkeley
-make</application>; there is a tutorial for it in
-<filename>/usr/share/doc/psd/12.make</filename>. To view it, do
-<screen>$ <userinput>zmore paper.ascii.gz</userinput></screen>
-in that directory.</para>
-
-<para>Many applications in the ports use <application>GNU
-make</application>, which has a very good set of <quote>info</quote>
-pages. If you have installed any of these ports, <application>GNU
-make</application> will automatically have been installed as
-<command>gmake</command>. It's also available as a port and package
-in its own right.</para>
-
-<para>To view the info pages for <application>GNU make</application>,
-you will have to edit the <filename>dir</filename> file in the
-<filename>/usr/local/info</filename> directory to add an entry for
-it. This involves adding a line like
-<programlisting> * Make: (make). The GNU Make utility.</programlisting>
-to the file. Once you have done this, you can type
-<userinput>info</userinput> and then select
-<guimenuitem>make</guimenuitem> from the menu (or in
-<application>Emacs</application>, do <userinput>C-h
-i</userinput>).</para>

-<sect1>
-<title>The Debugger</title>
-
-<para>The debugger that comes with FreeBSD is called
-<command>gdb</command> (<application>GNU
-debugger</application>). You start it up by typing
-<screen>$ <userinput>gdb <replaceable>progname</replaceable></userinput></screen>
-although most people prefer to run it inside
-<application>Emacs</application>. You can do this by:
-<screen><userinput>M-x gdb RET <replaceable>progname</replaceable> RET</userinput></screen></para>
-
-<para>Using a debugger allows you to run the program under more
-controlled circumstances. Typically, you can step through the program
-a line at a time, inspect the value of variables, change them, tell
-the debugger to run up to a certain point and then stop, and so on.
-You can even attach to a program that's already running, or load a
-core file to investigate why the program crashed. It's even possible
-to debug the kernel, though that's a little trickier than the user
-applications we'll be discussing in this section.</para>
-
-<para><command>gdb</command> has quite good on-line help, as well as
-a set of info pages, so this section will concentrate on a few of the
-basic commands.</para>
-
-<para>Finally, if you find its text-based command-prompt style
-off-putting, there's a graphical front-end for it <ulink
-URL="http://www.freebsd.org/ports/devel.html">xxgdb</ulink>

-<title>Running a program in the debugger</title>
-
-<para>You'll need to have compiled the program with the
-<option>-g</option> option to get the most out of using
-<command>gdb</command>. It will work without, but you'll only see the
-name of the function you're in, instead of the source code. If you
-see a line like:
-<screen>&hellip; (no debugging symbols found) &hellip;</screen>when
-<command>gdb</command> starts up, you'll know that the program wasn't
-compiled with the <option>-g</option> option.</para>
-
-<para>At the <command>gdb</command> prompt, type <userinput>break
-main</userinput>. This will tell the debugger to skip over the
-preliminary set-up code in the program and start at the beginning of
-your code. Now type <userinput>run</userinput> to start the
-program&mdash;it will start at the beginning of the set-up code and
-then get stopped by the debugger when it calls
-<function>main()</function>. (If you've ever wondered where
-<function>main()</function> gets called from, now you know!).</para>
-
-<para>You can now step through the program, a line at a time, by
-pressing <command>n</command>. If you get to a function call, you can
-step into it by pressing <command>s</command>. Once you're in a
-function call, you can return from stepping into a function call by
-pressing <command>f</command>. You can also use <command>up</command> and
-<command>down</command> to take a quick look at the caller.</para>
-
-<para>Here's a simple example of how to spot a mistake in a program
-with <command>gdb</command>. This is our program (with a deliberate
-mistake):
-<programlisting>#include &lt;stdio.h&gt;
-
-int bazz(int anint);
-
-main() {
- int i;
-
- printf("This is my program\n");
- bazz(i);
- return 0;
-}
-
-int bazz(int anint) {
- printf("You gave me %d\n", anint);
- return anint;
-}</programlisting>
-</para>
-
-<para>This program sets <symbol>i</symbol> to be <literal>5</literal>
-and passes it to a function <function>bazz()</function> which prints
-out the number we gave it.</para>
-
-<para>When we compile and run the program we get
-<screen>$ <userinput>cc -g -o temp temp.c</userinput>

-<title>Examining a core file</title>
-
-<para>A core file is basically a file which contains the complete
-state of the process when it crashed. In <quote>the good old

-and sweat over machine code manuals, but now life is a bit easier.
-Incidentally, under FreeBSD and other 4.4BSD systems, a core file is
-called <filename><replaceable>progname</>.core</> instead of just
-<filename>core</filename>, to make it clearer which program a core

-
-<para>To examine a core file, start up <command>gdb</command> in the

-<command>run</command>, type
-<screen>(gdb) <userinput>core <replaceable>progname</replaceable>.core</userinput></screen>
-If you're not in the same directory as the core file, you'll have to

-<title>Attaching to a running program</title>
-
-<para>One of the neatest features about <command>gdb</command> is
-that it can attach to a program that's already running. Of course,
-that assumes you have sufficient permissions to do so. A common
-problem is when you are stepping through a program that forks, and
-you want to trace the child, but the debugger will only let you trace
-the parent.</para>
-
-<para>What you do is start up another <command>gdb</command>, use
-<command>ps</command> to find the process ID for the child, and
-do<screen>(gdb) <userinput>attach <replaceable>pid</replaceable></userinput></screen>
-in <command>gdb</command>, and then debug as usual.</para>
-
-<para><quote>That's all very well,</quote> you're probably thinking,
-<quote>but by the time I've done that, the child process will be over
-the hill and far away</quote>. Fear not, gentle reader, here's how to
-do it (courtesy of the <command>gdb</command> info pages):
-<screen><lineannotation>&hellip</lineannotation>
-if ((pid = fork()) < 0) /* _Always_ check this */
- error();
-else if (pid == 0) { /* child */
- int PauseMode = 1;
-
- while (PauseMode)
- sleep(10); /* Wait until someone attaches to us */
- <lineannotation>&hellip</lineannotation>
-} else { /* parent */
- <lineannotation>&hellip</lineannotation></screen>
-Now all you have to do is attach to the child, set
-<symbol>PauseMode</symbol> to <literal>0</literal>, and

-
-<para>Emacs can be installed on FreeBSD using <ulink
-URL="http://www.freebsd.org/ports/editors">the Emacs
-port</ulink>.</para>
-
-<para>Once it's installed, start it up and do <userinput>C-h
-t</userinput> to read an Emacs tutorial&mdash;that means hold down
-the <keycap>control</keycap> key, press <keycap>h</keycap>, let go of
-the <keycap>control</keycap> key, and then press <keycap>t</keycap>.
-(Alternatively, you can you use the mouse to select <guimenuitem>Emacs
-Tutorial</guimenuitem> from the <guimenu>Help</guimenu> menu).</para>
-
-<para>Although Emacs does have menus, it's well worth learning the
-key bindings, as it's much quicker when you're editing something to
-press a couple of keys than to try and find the mouse and then click
-on the right place. And, when you're talking to seasoned Emacs users,
-you'll find they often casually throw around expressions like
-<quote><literal>M-x replace-s RET foo RET bar RET</literal></quote>
-so it's useful to know what they mean. And in any case, Emacs has far
-too many useful functions for them to all fit on the menu
-bars.</para>
-
-<para>Fortunately, it's quite easy to pick up the key-bindings, as
-they're displayed next to the menu item. My advice is to use the
-menu item for, say, opening a file until you understand how it works
-and feel confident with it, then try doing C-x C-f. When you're happy
-with that, move on to another menu command.</para>
-
-<para>If you can't remember what a particular combination of keys
-does, select <guimenuitem>Describe Key</guimenuitem> from the
-<guimenu>Help</guimenu> menu and type it in&mdash;Emacs will tell you
-what it does. You can also use the <guimenuitem>Command
-Apropos</guimenuitem> menu item to find out all the commands which
-contain a particular word in them, with the key binding next to
-it.</para>
-
-<para>By the way, the expression above means hold down the
-<keysym>Meta</keysym> key, press <keysym>x</keysym>, release the
-<keysym>Meta</keysym> key, type <userinput>replace-s</userinput>
-(short for <literal>replace-string</literal>&mdash;another feature of
-Emacs is that you can abbreviate commands), press the
-<keysym>return</keysym> key, type <userinput>foo</userinput> (the
-string you want replaced), press the <keysym>return</keysym> key,
-type bar (the string you want to replace <literal>foo</literal> with)
-and press <keysym>return</keysym> again. Emacs will then do the
-search-and-replace operation you've just requested.</para>
-
-<para>If you're wondering what on earth the <keysym>Meta</keysym> key
-is, it's a special key that many Unix workstations have.
-Unfortunately, PC's don't have one, so it's usually the
-<keycap>alt</keycap> key (or if you're unlucky, the <keysym>escape</keysym>
-key).</para>
-
-<para>Oh, and to get out of Emacs, do <command>C-x C-c</command>
-(that means hold down the <keysym>control</keysym> key, press
-<keysym>c</keysym>, press <keysym>x</keysym> and release the
-<keysym>control</keysym> key). If you have any unsaved files open,
-Emacs will ask you if you want to save them. (Ignore the bit in the
-documentation where it says <command>C-z</command> is the usual way
-to leave Emacs&mdash;that leaves Emacs hanging around in the
-background, and is only really useful if you're on a system which
-doesn't have virtual terminals).</para>

-<title>Configuring Emacs</title>
-
-<para>Emacs does many wonderful things; some of them are built in,
-some of them need to be configured.</para>
-
-<para>Instead of using a proprietary macro language for
-configuration, Emacs uses a version of Lisp specially adapted for
-editors, known as Emacs Lisp. This can be quite useful if you want to
-go on and learn something like Common Lisp, as it's considerably
-smaller than Common Lisp (although still quite big!).</para>
-
-<para>The best way to learn Emacs Lisp is to download the <ulink
-URL="ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu:pub/gnu/elisp-manual-19-2.4.tar.gz">Emacs
-Tutorial</ulink></para>
-
-<para>However, there's no need to actually know any Lisp to get
-started with configuring Emacs, as I've included a sample
-<filename>.emacs</filename> file, which should be enough to get you
-started. Just copy it into your home directory and restart Emacs if
-it's already running; it will read the commands from the file and
-(hopefully) give you a useful basic setup.</para>

-<title>Extending the Range of Languages Emacs Understands</title>
-
-<para>Now, this is all very well if you only want to program in the
-languages already catered for in the <filename>.emacs</filename> file
-(C, C++, Perl, Lisp and Scheme), but what happens if a new language
-called <quote>whizbang</quote> comes out, full of exciting
-features?</para>
-
-<para>The first thing to do is find out if whizbang
-comes with any files that tell Emacs about the language. These
-usually end in <filename>.el</filename>, short for <quote>Emacs
-Lisp</quote>. For example, if whizbang is a FreeBSD
-port, we can locate these files by doing
-<screen>$ <userinput>find /usr/ports/lang/whizbang -name "*.el" -print</userinput></screen>
-and install them by copying them into the Emacs site Lisp directory. On
-FreeBSD 2.1.0-RELEASE, this is
-<filename>/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>So for example, if the output from the find command was
-<screen>/usr/ports/lang/whizbang/work/misc/whizbang.el</screen>
-we would do
-<screen>$ <userinput>cp /usr/ports/lang/whizbang/work/misc/whizbang.el /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp</userinput></screen>
-</para>
-
-<para>Next, we need to decide what extension whizbang source files
-have. Let's say for the sake of argument that they all end in
-<filename>.wiz</filename>. We need to add an entry to our
-<filename>.emacs</filename> file to make sure Emacs will be able to
-use the information in <filename>whizbang.el</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>Find the <symbol>auto-mode-alist entry</symbol> in
-<filename>.emacs</filename> and add a line for whizbang, such
-as:
-<programlisting><lineannotation>&hellip;</>
-("\\.lsp$" . lisp-mode)
-("\\.wiz$" . whizbang-mode)
-("\\.scm$" . scheme-mode)
-<lineannotation>&hellip;</></programlisting>
-This means that Emacs will automatically go into
-<function>whizbang-mode</function> when you edit a file ending in
-<filename>.wiz</filename>.</para>
-
-<para>Just below this, you'll find the
-<symbol>font-lock-auto-mode-list</symbol> entry. Add
-<function>whizbang-mode</function> to it like so:
-<programlisting>;; Auto font lock mode
-(defvar font-lock-auto-mode-list
- (list 'c-mode 'c++-mode 'c++-c-mode 'emacs-lisp-mode 'whizbang-mode 'lisp-mode 'perl-mode 'scheme-mode)
- "List of modes to always start in font-lock-mode")</programlisting>
-This means that Emacs will always enable
-<function>font-lock-mode</function> (ie syntax highlighting) when
-editing a <filename>.wiz</filename> file.</para>
-
-<para>And that's all that's needed. If there's anything else you want
-done automatically when you open up a <filename>.wiz</filename> file,
-you can add a <function>whizbang-mode hook</function> (see
-<function>my-scheme-mode-hook</function> for a simple example that
-adds <function>auto-indent</function>).</para>
