Fileserver Procedures:
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve files or logbooks from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".  If your network link does
not support the interactive "TELL" command, or if Listserv rejects
your request, then send a one-line mail message (without a subject
line) to LISTSERV@utoronto, reading "GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index.  (Note that
result in an *un*annotated list generated automatically by
Listserv.  These lists include size information, but are less
legible to human eyes.)
For further information, consult the appropriate section of your
SHAKSPER GUIDE, or contact the editor, <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
