FYI Index



This file contains citations for all FYIs in numeric order.

FYI citations appear in this format:

Title of FYI. Author 1, Author 2, Author 3. Issue date. (Format: ASCII) (Obsoletes xxx) (Obsoleted by xxx) (Updates xxx) (Updated by xxx) (Also RFC ####)

Key to citations:

#### is the FYI number.

Following the number are the title (terminated with a period), the author, or list of authors (terminated with a period), and the date (terminated with a period).

The format and byte information follows in parenthesis. The format, either ASCII text (TXT) or PostScript (PS) or both, is noted, followed by an equals sign and the number of bytes for that version. For example (Format: TXT=aaaaa, PS=bbbbbb bytes) shows that the ASCII text version is aaaaa bytes, and the PostScript version of the FYI is bbbbbb bytes. The (Also RFC ##) phrase gives the equivalent RFC.

For example:
