The hypertex is intended to be edited by users. We are looking to
build special purpose pages around courses such as linear algebra.

Assume HERE=$AXIOM/doc/hypertex/pages

The text can be found in $HERE/ or $HERE/foo.pht

The macros are tex-like and live in $HERE/

To change a page you need to:

cd $HERE
edit the page
rm *~ (to delete backup copies)
htadd *

the htadd command takes arguments:

htadd [-s|-l|-f db-directory] [-d|-n] filenames

but, i'm sorry to say, these have not been fully documented.

The htadd function will maintain the file called $HERE/ht.db
which is a database of absolute byte indexes into files.
Forgetting to run htadd will still work, sort-of, until you
hit a bad byte index and then it will fail.

Hypertex can also be directed elsewhere by using the HTPATH
shell variable. 

re: what's new. 

This all needs to be fixed by February when main is due to be
pushed into savannah.
