An MS-DOS INTKEY package for angiosperm families (L. Watson and M.J. Dallwitz
1991, The families of angiosperms: automated descriptions, with interactive
identification and information retrieval. Aust. Syst. Bot., 4, 681-95) is
available on the following Internet hosts.

     Host                   Base directory
     --------------------   -----------------------        /pub/software/delta        /pub/biodiversity/delta   /delta

Access is by anonymous ftp from any of these hosts, or by Gopher from the
first two. The distribution package consists of text files *.1st,
self-expanding files *.exe, and image files *.gif. The data files and
information about installation are in the subdirectory angio. angio at .exe
contains the data and various subsidiary files. Download.1st contains this
information about downloading the files, and angio.1st describes the procedure
for installing the programs on an MS-DOS computer. The rest of the files are
not essential for running INTKEY, and are in the subdirectory angio/extra.
a at .exe, b at .exe, ... contain full descriptions in English, and are about 1MB in
size. *.gif contain images, and are about 50MB in size. The files must be
transmitted in binary mode, set by the ftp command `binary'. (Failure to do so
will result in the error message `HeaderC Error' when the .exe files are run.)

If you do not already have the latest version of the interactive
identification and information retrieval program, INTKEY, you will need to
obtain the file delta1 at .exe from the subdirectory msdos. This file contains
INTKEY.EXE and its documentation.

To install the programs on an MS-DOS computer, place the .exe files in the
directory C:\ANGIO, and the .gif files in the directory C:\ANGIO\PICS. Then
follow the installation procedure described in angio.1st, but omit the COPY

The file Index.txt (note the upper-case I) contains a list of other available
programs and data. To view this file during an ftp session, give the ftp
commands `get Index.txt' and `! more < Index.txt'.
