                                 PREFACE
   
   _The Devil's Dictionary_ was begun in a weekly paper in 1881, and was
   continued in a desultory way at long intervals until 1906.  In that
   year a large part of it was published in covers with the title _The
   Cynic's Word Book_, a name which the author had not the power to
   reject or happiness to approve.  To quote the publishers of the
   present work:
       "This more reverent title had previously been forced upon him by
   the religious scruples of the last newspaper in which a part of the
   work had appeared, with the natural consequence that when it came out
   in covers the country already had been flooded by its imitators with a
   score of 'cynic' books -- _The Cynic's This_, _The Cynic's That_, and
   _The Cynic's t'Other_.  Most of these books were merely stupid, though
   some of them added the distinction of silliness.  Among them, they
   brought the word 'cynic' into disfavor so deep that any book bearing
   it was discredited in advance of publication."
       Meantime, too, some of the enterprising humorists of the country
   had helped themselves to such parts of the work as served their needs,
   and many of its definitions, anecdotes, phrases and so forth, had
   become more or less current in popular speech.  This explanation is
   made, not with any pride of priority in trifles, but in simple denial
   of possible charges of plagiarism, which is no trifle.  In merely
   resuming his own the author hopes to be held guiltless by those to
   whom the work is addressed -- enlightened souls who prefer dry wines
   to sweet, sense to sentiment, wit to humor and clean English to slang.
       A conspicuous, and it is hope not unpleasant, feature of the book
   is its abundant illustrative quotations from eminent poets, chief of
   whom is that learned and ingenius cleric, Father Gassalasca Jape,
   S.J., whose lines bear his initials.  To Father Jape's kindly
   encouragement and assistance the author of the prose text is greatly
   indebted.
                                                                     A.B.

                        Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
   
                         Public Domain -- Copy Freely
   
   These Dictionary topics are from M.G. Easton M.A., D.D., Illustrated
   Bible Dictionary, Third Edition, published by Thomas Nelson, 1897. Due
   to the nature of etext, the illustrated portion of the Dictionary have
   not been included.
   
   The current format has been designed for programatic reference, placing
   50 topics in a file, preceeding each topic with $$topic_number,
   surrounding the topic name with back-slashes, References to other topics
   are prefixed with a � (ascii 175) double arrow followed by the 8 byte
   topic number. It should be noted that it is possible to have the topic
   prefix followed by "(n/a)". This is due to a very small number of topic
   references which were unable to be resolved. These topics are:
   
   
      Laadan, Land Laws, Vashni.
   
   These topics are not listed in the printed edition and it is not
   apparent what Mr. Eastone intended.  The verse references have not been
   marked up or tagged for program usage.  It is hoped someone will do this
   work and make the resulting files available to the person(s) below.
   
   The most current and correct copies of these files can be obtained from

   Elements database 20001107
   This dictionary database was created by Jay F. Kominek
   <jay.kominek@colorado.edu> (Feel free to send any comments, additions,
   corrections, money to that address) It was compiled from a variety of
   sources, and is in my opinion, a work of my own. (The only stuff that
   was really copied verbatim was the atomic numbers and weights, please,
   I'd like to see someone try and exert a copyright on the values of atoms.)
   So, I place this in the public domain, if it somehow breaks, you get to
   keep both pieces. It'd be nice if you kept the fact that I compiled the
   information in here, but is not needed.
   Up to date copies can probably be found on the web at:

   HITCHCOCK'S BIBLE NAMES DICTIONARY
   
   This dictionary is from "Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis of
   the Holy Bible," published in the late 1800s.  It contains more
   than 2,500 Bible and Bible-related proper names and their
   meanings.  Some Hebrew words of uncertain meaning have been left
   out. It is out of copyright, so feel free to copy and distribute
   it. I pray it will help in your study of God's Word.

   #======= THIS IS THE JARGON FILE, VERSION 4.3.1, 29 JUN 2001 =======#
   
   This is the Jargon File, a comprehensive compendium of hacker slang
   illuminating many aspects of hackish tradition, folklore, and humor.
   
   This document (the Jargon File) is in the public domain, to be freely
   used, shared, and modified. There are (by intention) no legal restraints on
   what you can do with it, but there are traditions about its proper use to
   which many hackers are quite strongly attached. Please extend the courtesy
   of proper citation when you quote the File, ideally with a version number,
   as it will change and grow over time. (Examples of appropriate citation
   form: "Jargon File 4.3.1" or "The on-line hacker Jargon File, version
   4.3.1, 29 JUN 2001".)
   
   The Jargon File is a common heritage of the hacker culture. Over the
   years a number of individuals have volunteered considerable time to
   maintaining the File and been recognized by the net at large as editors of
   it. Editorial responsibilities include: to collate contributions and
   suggestions from others; to seek out corroborating information; to
   cross-reference related entries; to keep the file in a consistent format;
   and to announce and distribute updated versions periodically. Current
   volunteer editors include:
   
   Eric Raymond <esr@snark.thyrsus.com>
   
   Although there is no requirement that you do so, it is considered good
   form to check with an editor before quoting the File in a published work or
   commercial product. We may have additional information that would be
   helpful to you and can assist you in framing your quote to reflect not only
   the letter of the File but its spirit as well.
   
   All contributions and suggestions about this file sent to a volunteer
   editor are gratefully received and will be regarded, unless otherwise
   labelled, as freely given donations for possible use as part of this
   public-domain file.
   
   From time to time a snapshot of this file has been polished, edited, and
   formatted for commercial publication with the cooperation of the volunteer
   editors and the hacker community at large. If you wish to have a bound
   paper copy of this file, you may find it convenient to purchase one of
   these. They often contain additional material not found in on-line
   versions. The two `authorized' editions so far are described in the
   Revision History section; there may be more in the future.
