          Following is  a  brief  synopsis  of  each  article/file  that
     appears  in  the  SWSKIT  documentation.   Please note that many of
     these articles are preliminary functional  specs  and  discussions,
     and   may  contain  some  information  that  is  completely  false.
     However, the material is provided to be used  with  proper  caution
     because  it  does  provide  information  not otherwise available in
     useful form at this time.  Over time, many of these documents  will
     be replaced by SDC-type materials.  For other items, these articles
     may be the main source of information for quite a while.

          USEFE               This  document  outlines  how  to  use  FE
                              device and program.
