ABSTRACT

The subdirectory userdocs in the PAL contains a number of documents of
interest to the users of the PAL.  The key user documents in this
subdirectory are:

     CAT_DOC.ZIP and CAT_PS.ZIP - a catalog, complete with table of
       contents and index, of the contents of the PAL in the form
       of a book; CAT_DOC.ZIP contains the chapters as ASCII text,
       CAT_PS.ZIP contains the chapters as Postscript files that
       print 2 pages per physical page in landscape (1/2 the number
       of hardcopy pages required by CAT_DOC.ZIP)

     TAXONOMY.ZIP - a taxonomy of the PAL in ASCII and Postscript

     CSV_DB.ZIP - contains a Comma-Separated-Value (CSV) ASCII
       text file which can be read into database managers like
       dBase IV and spreadsheets like LOTUS 1-2-3 to allow the user
       to scan for items of interest offline; the contents of this
       ZIP file are CSV_DB.DOC and CSV_HDR.DOC, where DB contains the
       data and HDR contains structure information

The directory id_files contains the Item Description files from which
the above files were created.  Item Description files exist for each
item in the PAL.  The directory c1_rpts contains certification reports
generated by the Certifier 1 program on all Ada source code in the PAL. 
File names in id_files and c1_rpts which have the same prefix refer to
the same item.

Other files in the userdocs/catalog and userdocs/faqfile subdirectories
are used to create these key files.  Additionally, the user is invited
to look in the following directories for additional useful information:

  userdocs/alt_srcs    -- alternate sources to the items in the PAL
  userdocs/internet    -- information on using the Internet
