Subject: 	Sample Files on the SHAKSPER Fileserver
Date: 		Tue, 24 Sep 91 10:30:30 EDT
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
I am pleased to announce the creation of a new area on the SHAKSPER
Fileserver, containing over thirty files of information and samples from
the Oxford Text Archive.  Lou Burnard has kindly provided excerpts
from the Quarto files currently available from the Archive, so that
SHAKSPEReans can experiment with them and examine the tagging schemes
of each.  (The excerpts consist of the first 60 lines, middle 60
lines, and last 60 lines of each text, along with summary and tagging
information).  Those of you who have never played with parallel texts
might try looking at the alternate quartos of *Romeo and Juliet* or
*Hamlet* for a start -- it's too bad we don't have Folio texts to
compare as well.
The files are as follows:

Fileserver Procedures:
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve any complete text file from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET filename filetype 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 filename filetype SHAKSPER".
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index.
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.> or
