		Technical Report 81-1
		Computer Vision and Graphics Laboratory
		McGill University

	The files for it were in ps:<g-gibbs.browse>
	It can be built by taking build.cmd
	The runnable version was in ps:<packages>
		as were our current data files
			browse.bin is the main data file
			browse.list is a list of topics, just for info
			browse.files is a list of topics
				with the associated files, just for info

	It is not essential to use LBR in order to use Browse, as Browse can
	use information stored in normal files. We use LBR style libraries to
	save space, and to group similar things together. Some of the contents

	these are bas1.hlp,bas2.hlp and wiz.hlp, being the help for Browse.

	LBR is a library program for saving disc space.
	The source was in ps:<g-gibbs.browse>
	The runnable version was in ps:<packages>

	IND is an indirect command processor, a la RT11 & RSX (&VMS ?)
	The sources were in melon:<ind>
	The runnable version was in ps:<packages>

	Ordlib sorts .REL files into calling order. This is useful for

	worry about keeping them in the right order.
