	This is a big slap in the face to the people that spend time
writing documentaion.  I debated responding to this mail, but I proke
down.  The afterstep man page is on your machine, and on the web site.
The 9th line from the top of the afterstep man page is:
	[-v | --version] [-c | --config]
although it might take some type of reading level acheived as well as an
small understanding of the English language; it is rather clear.

	Information for getting Gnome working with AfterStep is also
available on the web site, and has been updated 3 times since the move to
100% Gnome compliance.  It is now rather straight forward in prescribing
the requirements and describing the steps to acheive a Gnome environment
in AfterStep.

	If for some reason this information that is provided is lacking in
some way, only by contacting the author of said information and reporting
such, will the information become clearer.

	Thanks for YOUR time.
