SCRIBE is a document-formatting program; it processes Manuscript files into
Document files.  Document files are printed on an appropriate printing device
to produce the finished document.

If A.MSS is a Manuscript file, then it may be processed with SCRIBE as
follows.  The extension of the output file produced depends on the output
device; at times it will also produce an error file .ERR, outline file .OTL,
and an auxiliary file .AUX.


Options available include:
	/Dover			Output for Dover
	/FILE or /F		Output for @Device(File)
	/LPT or /L		Output for line printer
	/DIABLO or /D		Output for Diablo HyType II
	/GSI or /G		Output for GSI photocomposer at SRI
	/PagedFile		Output for @Device(PagedFile)
	/LA36 or /A		Output for @Device(LA36) [DECwriter]
