transfer mode of ftp.

                OBTAINING THE ADVANCE PROGRAM VIA GOPHER

To obtain Advance Program files via gopher applications, connect to the

                OBTAINING THE ADVANCE PROGRAM VIA EMAIL

To obtain Advance Program files by email from the SIGGRAPH email archive
server, send an email message requesting the files to:


The subject line or body of your message must include one or more lines
of the form:

    send S93-AdvanceProgram FILENAME

where FILENAME is the name of the file you wish to have sent to you.  Text
and RTF files of the Advance Program are available.  PostScript and compressed
PostScript files are not available due to their large size and the load they'd
put on email systems.

To obtain an index of available archive server files, use:

    send S93-AdvanceProgram index

To obtain a specific Advance Program file, such as "1_s93introduction", use:

    send S93-AdvanceProgram 1_s93introduction
