Subject:Documentation for internal use From:Thom Remington <remingtf -at- DSSRV01 -dot- DS -dot- DUPONT -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 22 Feb 1996 07:49:53 -0500
In reply to Angela Howard's question about documentation for internal use:
*Everything* I write is for folks within the company only. That includes
some software documentation, but most of it is aimed more at engineering
(pumps, tanks, etc., not software engineering).
We are _very_ careful about accuracy, and we work hard to make things look
good. However, the stuff we publish is virtually always printed on
high-speed photocopying systems, on 8-1/2 x 11 paper. Others in my group do
stuff that goes outside, and they do color stuff on glossy paper, etc.
Internal stuff only gets done xerographically on regular paper.
