     With the joined efforts of Joerg Wunsch, Annelise Anderson, Marty
     Leisner, and myself, Brian Kernighan has given the approval to
     include into distribution a Learn program witten by him and
     Michael Lesk.

     This program is circa 1979, therefore needing a lot of work to
     get it up to present in terms of content as well as making it
     work effectively into FreeBSD.

          "Kernighan's purpose in creating the program was, ac-
          cording to those files, to provide direct interaction
          with the unix system. From the little I've used it,
          "learn" seems to be a systematic and orderly way to
          learn unix basics from a user point of view, and it
          might be worthwhile to provide such a utility."

          Annelise Anderson

     Help is needed!

     The current src of 'learn' is available via CVSup.
     Just put

               learn-all release=cvs

     in your supfile, if you are interested in using it in it's cur-
     rent form and/or would like to contribute to its Lessons.

     A README in the learn directory as well as learn.ms will give you
     an overview of the program. Any questions can be sent to
