Subject:what to call it? From:John Engler <spillman!jengler -at- UUNET -dot- UU -dot- NET> Date:Fri, 3 Jan 1997 10:57:16 -0700
Hope y'all had wonderful holidays. I've got a question for everybody--
What do y'all call your documentation--guides, user's guides, manuals,
books, other? And does the size (tiny or huge) or the purpose (end user
or administration) of the doc matter in what you would call it? Do users
care? We're just trying to decide what to call our stuff, and we'd just
like some feedback from all of you.
