I wonder what's the deal with <subject>. There has been a question in
Usenet, and even somebody who would like to contribute texts for it.
So well, i went out to see how the original learn(1) looked like, and
our old AIX 3.2.5 actually still had it. Much to my surprise, the
data files are:
# COMPONENT_NAME: (CMDMAN) commands that allow users to read online
# ORIGINS: 27
# Copyright (c) 1980 Regents of the University of California.
# All rights reserved. The Berkeley software License Agreement
# specifies the terms and conditions for redistribution.
So now i wonder whether we would legally be allowed to use these files
directly? I can't find any traces on FTP servers, the closest was a
tree of 4.3-Reno somewhere in .uk land but with empty directories for
learn. Does anybody know whom to approach to inquire about the actual
status? I think learn(1) has never been part of any AT&T Unix, so
they should not claim any rights on it either.
