Subject: REACH on FTP


_REACH_, Research and Educational Applications of Computers
in the Humanities, the newsletter of the Humanities
Computing Facility of the University of California, Santa
Barbara, is now available in electronic form through
anonymous FTP.

FTP is a UNIX process which lets you transfer files from a
distant computer to your own system. Your local computer
center staff should be able to provide you with information
on using FTP from your own account.

Once you have FTP available, enter one or the other of the
two following equivalent commands to gain access to the UCSB
computer storing the files:

ftp ucsbuxa.ucsb.edu

Try the first version, and, if that doesn't work, then try
the second.

Log on with the name "anonymous," and use your e-mail
address as a password.

Next, move to the directory containing the files by entering
the command:

cd hcf

Now that you're in the correct directory, you can get a list
of all the file names by entering the command:


Then, to transfer any of the files to your own system, enter
the command:

get filename

First try transferring the file called "readme." It shows
the contents of each of the files in the directory, and
gives detailed instructions for the FTP process, including
the complete log of an actual FTP session.

Finally, end your session with the "quit" command.

If you encounter any difficulties in using the process, send
me an e-mail note and I'll try to enlist the assistance of
one of our local wizards.

I'd be particularly interested to hear from those who find
this archive a useful form of resource.

Announcement of Hungarian Discussion Group

A new electronic discussion group on Hungarian issues is now
open to scholars and students from all disciplines. Although
the working language of the group is English, contributions
in other languages will be accepted and posted. However,
they may not be understood by a significant proportion of
the membership.

Electronic mail connections have already been established
with three Hungarian universities: Budapest Technical
University, Budapest University of Economic Sciences, and
Eotvos Lorand University.

The group and list server addresses of the new group, based
at the University of California, Santa Barbara, are:


To subscribe to the discussion group, send an e-mail
message, without any subject, to the list server address,
listserv@ucsbvm.bitnet, containing the single line:

subscribe hungary "your name"

with your own name, not your e-mail address, inserted in
place of the phrase "your name," without quotes.

Once you have subscribed, any messages which you want to
circulate to the group should be sent to the group address,

The list is moderated, and will be edited by:
