Dear David,

For what its worth,

Maybe it's time for someone (EWH?) to write/publish an O'Reilly
butterfly book. It sure seems like there are a lot of us around who
use/abuse the MHonArc code. I have very little time to prod the
code or even become sufficiently capable with Perl so that I can
easily follow all of the steps.  I think that the recources
documentation is almost perfect for quickly locating a method for
performing some arcane task that users at our site request. We
certainly have gained users at this site who know much more about
the code than I.

I am serious about the book idea and suggest it, because the
number of users, who are not nerds, is so rapidly increasing. It
would be nice to have a sort of how-to reference for a beginning

A very good Idea. I've started using MHonArc about two weeks ago and 
it took me some time to makethings working as I want them. Such a 
bookf for new users and even for experienced users would be great 
since having a printed book is much easier to look things up than on 
the web (even if you have installed toe great documentation locally).

I have written some resources which I will publish when they are 
cleaned up. This will help new users to make MHonArc run in a couple 
of hours...

I would be in the market for several copies for our lab and one
for myself. I wonder how many think its a waste of time.

I don't think it's a waste of time.

With best compliments
