The manuals are stored in a compressed file on distribution disk # 3. One of
the manuals, MANUAL.DOC, is the complete documentation on the use of PM. The
second manual is an abbreviated version of the full manual. To create the
second manual, I extracted all the notes, suggestions, tips, warnings, etc.
from the original manual and placed them in the file PM-NOTES.DOC. The
compressed manual file, MANUALS.EXE also contains a small progam to print each
of the manuals (PRT-MAN.COM and PRT-NOTE.COM).

To print the file PM-FEATU.DOC, exit then:

Select option # 2 in PM-PRINT.COM
