     This document was written with 'mkgopher' in mind.  You may be
     managing your space from the UNIX shell, but since 'mkgopher'
     uses common UNIX commands, this should still be helpful.

     This will create the directory for the top level of your GOPHERSPACE.
     Your URL will be "gopher://sdf.org/1/users/username" (or
     "gopher://sdf-eu.org/1/users/username") where 'username' is your UNIX
     user id.  During your 'mkgopher' session, this directory will be
     present.  If you don't create anyfiles or directories, the space
     will be removed to keep our site clean.
     NOTE: Unfortunately, most web browsers do not render gopher pages
     properly, let alone grok Gopher URLs.

     Your GOPHER URL is gopher://sdf.org/1/users/login (or
     gopher://sdf-eu.org/1/users/login) where 'login' is the UNIX user id
     you use to login to SDF.  Your SITE name is your 'login'.  Since that
     is limited to 8 characters, you can use TITLE to set a 50 character
     or less title for your site.
     For each directory you create in your GOPHERSPACE you can use the
     DESCRIBE command to create a detailed description.  This entry is
     limited to 9 lines of roughly 50 characters per line.

     Create a subdirectory within your GOPHERSPACE.
     Remove a subdirectory within your GOPHERSPACE.

     Edit and publish a document.  You can also use this as a way to
     cut and paste text from your computer terminal to SDF.  ASCII upload
     mode can also be used, just start sending text once you open the
     editing buffer.  

     This should be used for large text files or binary data that cannot
     be transmitted via an ASCII transfer.  UPLOAD uses the ZMODEM file 
     transfer protocol which some terminal emulators support (TeraTerm ..)
