    Greetings Willard. While not nearly as convenient to read, Raymond et al.'s
    work is online at
    This version, of course, is not accessible when you're forced by the

    [And here is the beginning of an old thread. True, the Jargon File, as it's
    called, is online, and so without immediate cost, as the book is not, but
    the browsing function of the codex is so poorly implemented in the e-medium
    that I hardly appreciated the work until I had the former in my hands. If
    one wishes to *read*, I continue to assert, our new-fangled gadgets are
    really poor substitutes for the codex.... --WM]
