There is little sense into reverting a subject of interest to private
Email from the list.  In particular if you have configured your mail

state of incompleteness: there are two volumes of "beta"
documentation documenting new features, and there are 4 volumes of
"obsolete" documentation documenting features that existed before
that.  Those documentations have never been merged, so this is a bit

As I said: pictex documentation is proprietary.  The manual must be
bought, and I don't even know whether it is still in print.
