The documentation files are also available as a zip file
docs.zip. This includes HTML versions of the files. I am using XML as
document format, using a mishmash of the DocBook DTD with extra tags and HTML
thrown in. A Perl program,
is a handler called by my Apache Web server to deliver XML files as HTML.
Postscript versions of the documentation files are in postscript.zip. These are generated using html2ps, and I know this produces Postscript that does not print on all printers - in particular, our Kyocera printers. If you have problems printing these, let me know the solution only. Please note that the copyright license allows you to make single printed copies for your own use, but not multiple printed copies.

7. Copyright Information
This tutorial (and the pages it contains) are covered by the OpenContent license. This basically gives you freedom to do what you want with the document in a similar way to the GNU license for software. Any changes or additions that you make to this set of pages as a Web document must be made publically available, and may be folded into later versions of this tutorial. Any such inclusions will of course be credited with your copyright, under the OpenContent license.
On the other hand, the programs that this tutorial references are also available unbundled from the tutorial, and do not have the restriction that source derived from them must be made publically available. So you can derive your own source code from them, without having to make it public. I'm not sure what suitable license will do this...
And, of course, there is no warranty...
