Thank you Scott.
Under the circumstances, using netscape is the
best. GUI seems very useful for a vast repository
like netlib. GUI with search of independent
directories even more so. I doubt if searching for
text in different directories is possible with
netscape.. The find command just searches for
text in the page.
