I am posting the message on the technical writers newsgroup below to the
mainframe list which you can follow as newsgroup
I will post any replies on that list to the techwr-l list since most
mainframe people are not subscribed to this list. I will also post
useful replies that are on the technical writers group which I am
following as newsgroup bit.listserv.techwr-l to ibm-main. As someone
who avoided flowcharts if at all possible, I will be interested in the
replies. I also recommend both newsgroups to those interested in good
discussions related to the groups respective charters and some
fascinating tangents.
