SHAKSPER archives (SEARCH FUNCTION) from the SHAKSPER file server.

To retrieve these instructions, send a one-line mail message (without a
subject line) to

Should you have difficulty receiving this or any of the files on the
SHAKSPER file server, please contact the editor at

need to retrieve these instructions, you may order this file from the
fileserver.
