No problem. I can also tell you the kind of printer paper, the
postscript format, and the BPI - to say nothing of the Wordprocessing
format, the intermediate files, how to create the help files, both
porting proceedures, and how to unjam the copier.
And (to top things off), my name does not appear on the title page.
But am I the author? You bet I am. Do I think that your expections
are realistic? I do not.
