********************** CLIP from Comp.archives *********************
 This is the official release of Archie 1.3, a stand-alone client to
access the Archie FTP database.  It's intended to help reduce the
interactive use of the archie server by providing a comfortable,
accessible, and faster method of query.

 Changes since version 1.2 include:

	* further portability, some mistakes worked out; now also runs with UCX
	  TCP/IP under VMS and CUTCP on PCs
	* a few more bug fixes
	* now uses env variable ARCHIE_HOST to override default archie server
	* -L tells ya what the default is
	* VMS build revamped completely
	* includes the two new US servers

 There are now a goodly number of servers available, so no one system
will get hit with the world's use.  They are (as of 01/09/92):

	archie.ans.net (USA [NY])
	archie.rutgers.edu (USA [NJ])
        archie.sura.net (USA [MD])
        archie.mcgill.ca (Canada)
        archie.funet.fi (Finland/Mainland Europe)
        archie.au (Australia/New Zealand)
        archie.doc.ic.ac.uk (Great Britain/Ireland)

 The package will be available in the comp.sources.misc and vmsnet.sources
newsgroups (and, later, their archives), or via anonymous FTP from:

	* ftp.cs.widener.edu [147.31.254.132] as pub/archie.tar.Z (unix)
	  or archie-vms.com (VMS DCL .com file)
	* cs.rochester.edu [192.5.53.209] as pub/archie-1.3.tar.Z
	* ftp.huji.ac.il [132.65.6.5] as pub/archie-clients/c-archie.tar.Z
	  (for Israeli sites mainly)
	* ftp.ans.net [147.225.1.2] as pub/archie/clients/c-archie-1.3.tar.Z
	* nic.funet.fi [128.214.6.100] in pub/unix/databases/archie as
	  archie-1.3.tar.Z
	* soda.berkeley.edu [128.32.131.179] as pub/archie/archie-1.3.tar.Z
	  and pub/archie/archie.com

 Please report any comments, suggestions, fixes, (whether positive or negative)
