Subject:        [FTPing TACT]
 
A couple of notes on ftp'ing TACT:
 
After typing:
 
> ftp epas.utoronto.ca
 
the file server at this location will ask you for your user name.
Type in "anonymous", the return key and then type in your mail
address as a "password".  So a typical login session will look like
this:

 ... etc.  You will probably have to type "get <filename>" for each
of the 8 files in this directory, unless you have mget capabilities,
in which case you must type "mget *.*" at the system prompt, and
answer "y" to all of the "get <filename>?" questions the system asks.
 
After you have all your necessary files, type "bye" to log off the
remote file server.  Remember to type "binary" before retrieving
files, as the usual default type is "ascii".
 
  I am not familiar with the installation procedures for TACT, but I
would assume that read.me is a word-processor-accesible file, and
should be read FIRST, before attempting to install the program (after
retrieving it).
