DIAGNOSTICS

     ``Cannot open ..'' and ``Read error in ..''  indicate possi-
     ble  file  system  trouble  and should be referred to a UNIX
     system administrator.


NOTES

     If you move the current directory or one above it,  pwd  may
     not  give the correct response. Use the cd(1) command with a
     full path name to correct this situation.
