HOW TO FIND _OUTPUT MAGAZINE_ VIA GOPHER


First you need to determine if you have a gopher client on your box.
If you are on a unix box try typing the word: gopher

If the program is in your path you will initiate the program.
If it works try to find All the Gophers in the world menu.
An example follows later in this post.

If you do not have a gopher client running you can telnet to several
telnetable gopher clients or install a client.

To Telnet:
Try to locate the site closest to you.
Listed below are the May 1993 list of telnetable clients.

end of file one

You may also get a client for your box. There are versions for
DOS, Mac, and Unix. There also is a new sharewhare/freeware windows
version but I haven't figured out how to configure it.

ftp boombox.micro.umn.edu to get your client.

Both the Mac and Unix clients are the easiest to use. The Mac clients are
point and click. In the Unix client in VT100 mode, you can use the arrow
keys and then enter (return) to select a menu item (or type in a number).

FEATURE: With the new Unix version you can use Shift-D to directly download
selected files (where the arrow is) to your local hard disk

Here follows how to find _Output Magazine_ from telneting
to consultant.micro.umn.edu

FINALLY THE END OF FILE >............

and a secret:

You can also use Veronica DIRECTORY WAIS to search key words

Output and Design

Also, if you are running on a Unix client you can save bookmarks
by pressing "a" and enter. Next time all you have to do to find the
space is hit "v" in gopher and your there.

Hope this has been enlighting.
