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:

        R SCRIBE

Options available are:

  Q  Don't type err msgs (log only)     T  (Terse) short err msgs only
  W  Count words in document            V  determine vocabulary of document
  F  Use @Device(FILE)                  L  Use @Device(LPT)
  D  Use @Device(DIABLO)                X  Use @Device(XGP) ; not in SAIL
  A  Use @Device(LA36)                  DEV:name  Use @Device(name)
