Subject:        New on the SHAKSPER Fileserver: SEARCH FUNCTION

As of today, SHAKSPEReans may retrieve instructions for searching the
SHAKSPER archives (SEARCH FUNCTION) from the SHAKSPER file server.

To retrieve these instructions, send a one-line mail message (without a
subject line) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., reading "GET SEARCH
FUNCTION".

Should you have difficulty receiving this or any of the files on the
SHAKSPER file server, please contact the editor at
<This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> or <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>.

Because the file is rather small, I am appending it below.  Should you
need to retrieve these instructions, you may order this file from the
fileserver.
