 ASK fileserver (12/10/90)                                                     
                                                                               
ASK runs a fileserver, accesible by mail. The server is steadily
prepared for mail receipt, which is handled without assistance and
results in a reply to the sender. Usually ASK personnel is not required.
                                                                               
The ASK-server works -just like LISTSERV- with the wellknown
list-concept: Distinct subjects are defined as lists and are accessible
for the users.h the following subjects:
                                                                               
Today two lists exist wit
a) Public Domain Software (Name of the list: PDS)

Public Domain Software

This list helps to manage Public Domain Software, contributed by
university members. For the sake of convenient transport, the software
is available in a compressed form (ARC, UUE) and the user has to
uncompress it by himself. Of course, the corresponding transfer-programs
are available on the File- server.

ASK-Forum

The Forum "ASK" was installed to give the users the opportunity of
keeping well-informed about the ASK. To get new informations about SISY,
Fileserver or Software-award, the user has to register once (subscribe).
Then he will regularly get contributions, distributed by the forum via
mail.

Beside this passive use, the users also have the possibility to send
their own contributions like questions, suggestions, comments or
criticisms to the Forum. These will then  be sent to all other
registered users. Sending of own contributions is only possible when the
users are subscribed to the Forum. The contributions are collected and
saved and are available as monthly notices.

Using the fileserver

Before the description of the mail-commands is given, here is the
summary of the possibilities of using the fileserver:

- call for public domain software
- preparation of public domain software
- registering to participation in discussions
- introduction of own contributions
- handling of own discussion-themes with the ASK-Server

The Communication with the fileserver is effected by electronic mail.
The address is:   c=de; a=dbp; p=uni-karlsruhe; ou=ask; s=fileserv.

Answers to the mail are given mechanically, so a special command-syntax
is necessary. Only the real commands, standing in the subjectplace of a
mail or in the first line of the "body part" at an empty
