ABSTRACT

        PAGER2 is a tool which creates, extracts from, lists, and
scans paged files, where a paged file is a file composed of one or
more files prefixed by banners.  PAGER2 is based in concept on the
UNPAGE tool submitted to the Ada Repository on SIMTEL20 by Mitre
Corporation.  PAGER is an early implementation of the concept, written
in Ada; PAGER2 is a more current implementation of the concept,
also written in Ada.

        Paged files are convenient mechanisms for storing related
files.  They reduce cluttering in the directories and simplify the
file transfer process (from the Ada Software Repository, for example) by
requiring the user to transfer only one file in order to obtain all
files pertinent to a particular project or tool.  Additionally, paged
files are text files which can be handled more readily than the 8-bit
binary images associated with other file grouping mechanisms.  Paged
files may be manipulated by a text editor if necessary.
