I was not being sarcastic. I was suggesting you download the Handbook from the FTP sites, not cvsup the Handbook's sources. That would not involve jade at all, so you clearly didn't comprehend the advice I was attempting to convey. The following two commands would give you an updated copy of the Handbook in html-split format (you can get any other supported format in similar fashion): # fetch ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/book.html-split.tar.bz2 # tar -C /usr/share/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook -xjf book.html-split.tar.bz2 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
