 New Members List [regular posting]

Hi all,

Here's the [semi-] regular posting of the pop-forum members list.  It
should be self-explanatory.  People regularly send me updates, still, and
it appears to be a document in active use -- so if you've a desire to

includes all the updates I've received.  [With the exception of
Roger Evans who told me his details were always wrong no matter how
many times he asks me to change them.  But didn't send any change
details.  Ah well ...]


                  ** Pop-Forum Distribution List **

This a partial list of the people currently on the pop-forum distribution
list.  (There are many people who either haven't send me an entry or don't
want to be included.)  To get added to the list, send me some details which
should include some indication of your areas of interest.  Please notify me
of any errors and I will correct them as soon as possible.  At the end of
this list I include

    *   The list of "agony uncles" who are prepared to answer any Pop-related
        question in there area of scope.  They are the right people to direct
        FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to.

    *   A full list of all the Pop and Pop Languages User Group (PLUG)
        committee members

    *   Instructions for accessing the PLUG source code archive.

If you wish to add to or alter anything on the contents of this list then
simply write, telephone, or e-mail me.  I shall periodically mail this list as

I can redirect that alias when I am on holiday.

Pop-forum is unmoderated.  Out of courtesy to the diverse readers, if you have
material of significant commercial or political content, or remain in doubt
concerning its suitability, simply send it to the above address with a request
to relay the message.  This system has worked well in the past.

Suggestions and advice can be sought from pop-forum which generally provides
solutions quickly. However, you may feel that that you do not wish to
publicise your problems, perhaps because they are too "trivial" or perhaps
because they are sensitive. In this case, you can write to one or more of the
agony uncles below. They will try to answer your questions personally.  If
they do not know an answer, or your problem is intrinsically interesting, then
they may put the question to the forum, but without using your name. So you
should get an answer mailed to you in person, or by reading the ensuing
discussion.  If you are prepared to volunteer as an agony uncle, let me know.

+ When writing to one of the volunteers, please clearly indicate that you are
+ writing in that context.  (Otherwise the volunteer may think it is misdirected
+ mail!)

-- ** PLUG Source Code Archive **

+ The Poplog and Pop Languages User Group (PLUG) maintain an archive of Poplog
+ source code accessible via anonymous ftp.  Currently, the archive resides at
+ HP Labs:
+     ftp OR
+     ftp
+ The archive itself is held in the file plug.tar.Z and is a compressed, tar
+ archive.  It should be transfered using BINARY mode and recovered as
+ follows.
+     uncompress < plug.tar.Z | tar xf -
+ The archive is organised in the same way as $usepop and $poplocal.  The
+ instructions for installing it at your own site are provided in README
+ files.
+ The old PLUG Archive Server is now obsolete.  It was both troublesome and
+ expensive to run.  The current system, although having a more restricted
+ distribution, is capable of dealing with the expanded archive and is much
+ more convenient to distribute and update.
