I took a swipe at cleaning up the man page a little. A new job with
lots of little "emergencies" put the kabosh on any further progress for

example program to run through some of the features of XWPE could be
To help out Dennis, Ken and all the other contributers I also looked
into making a hyperlinked web page of the source code, see:
One other thing I checked into was CVS...however it looks like it could
be rather painful. Then theres the question of whether or not Dennis
would even want it.
As you can see my definition of Documentation is rather broad but covers
the Maintainer, Contributers, and the end user. After all the Y2K issues
have been resolved at work I'll be able to give more time to XWPE. This
could take a while..heh. See ya then!
