Sorry about that.  The online man pages were turned off because the CGI-bin 
script that
provided the service was a known security hole.

If you have already downloaded the ldm-mcidas package, you already have the man 
pages for
the decoders.  All you have to do is adjust your MANPATH to include the 
'man' directory in your MANPATH environment variable.


-- assume that you have downloaded and installed the ldm-mcidas package in the
   ~ldm/ldm-mcidas directory and that the runtime link has been created for
   the installation as follows:

<as 'ldm'>
cd ldm-mcidas
ln -s ldm-mcidas-2004 runtime
ln -s runtime/* .

export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/home/ldm/ldm-mcidas/man

I made the links referred to above in the ~ldm/ldm-mcidas directory on 
and updated the MANPATH definition in ~ldm/.bash_profile.  You should now be
able to get the MAN page listing for all ldm-mcidas decoders like:

<after making .bash_profile settings active>

man proftomd

Also, if you run any of the ldm-mcidas decoders with no arguments, they will
give you an abbreviated help listing.
