IV 6.0 I recon does smooth things out better OK if
your on 6.0    If you messed with 5.3 you needed several paths to
the same directory, 6.0 needs just one for your files I think.

Power is nothing without

I have no argument with what you say, but some of the basic stuff like
what exactly do you include in a project is not at all clear, or what do you
put in "local" versus "workgoup" versus "workspace" etc.

I think I can explain that nicely by using a real world example and walking
through it.

When the tutorials use examples they might talk about a "widget" or
something. By definition you don't know what a "widget" is or what it is
composed of, so how can you get a feel for how to set up a project for it?

If you use a real world example such as a building, bridge, telephone,
automobile, tractor, etc. it is something that people can relate to. I design
specialized mobile equipment, and would describe how I'd set up the project
for a new machine and some of the mistakes I've made along the way. You, or
others in your group could make improvements to what I suggest.

I know there are all sorts of working enivronments out there and wouldn't
pretend to have answers for those individual needs, but I think a simple,
brief explanation of the basics using a real world example would be ueful for
new users.

I'll try to write something up and send it to you. It may take a day or
