POX is one of the myriad XGP formatting programs. The
command "XSP POX.XGP[UP,DOC]/NOT" will produce hardcopy of the
writeup (appx. 30 pages). The last page (see bulletin board
near machine room) is the table of contents. Add 1 to page
numbers found there to get page numbers to specify to the
spooler if you want a partial listing, for example pages 2-5
may be gotten by "XSP POX.XGP[UP,DOC](3:6)/NOT".
For some explanatory paragraphs not yet in the
writeup, and descriptions of recent features, use "TYPE
POX.UPD[1,REM]" (this file is in TTY/LPT format).
A very old POX writeup in TTY/LPT format is the only
other documentation available to remote users. To see it on
your terminal, use "TYPE POX.REM[UP,DOC]".
For a list of the latest versions of the object
program (usually there is an experimental version newer than
POX.DMP[1,3]), and the very latest features and bugfixes not
yet reported in POX.UPD, use "TYPE POX.LOG[1,REM]".
The standard POX compiler is POX.DMP[1,3], but often there is a
newer experimental version and/or one or more older backup
versions. The experimental version is NPOX.DMP[1,3] and the
backups are given names POX.*[1,3] where the * is the month and
date the version was created, for example POX.204 on Feb.04 and
POX.B27 on November 27. Bugs should be reported to REM only
after all alternative versions have been tried.
