Tips on reading DistList

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Saturday, January 22, 1994
In private mail, someone asked for advice on browsing through the
DistList. You have probably noticed that each item in a DistList mailing
has the tag "Date: " at the start of a line so if your mail reader
permits searching you can use that.  For example, many Unix mail readers
use a "pager" (such as "more" or "less" (Unix has lovely names, no?)),
and you can type


(and hit return) to search for the start of a new message. You only need
to type the full string the first time; after that just hit "/" (without
the quotes, and with a return) to repeat the search.  Other systems
provide similar functions. Check your documentation.
Hope this helps.
