    1 'twander' QUICKSTART
    2 ====================
    4 Everyone seems to hate reading documentation, so this is a fast-track
    5 to getting started with 'twander'.  However, a lot of time and
    6 skull-sweat went into writing THE DOCS and you really should take the
    7 time to read them if you want to truly understand this program and
    8 what it can do for you:
   10 - NOTE: 'twander' is a tool for experienced Power Users and
   11   Programmers.  You need to understand the command shell and scripting
   12   on your system in order to effectively use the program.  If you do
   13   not, you will become quickly frustrated with 'twander', so spare
   14   yourself the aggravation.
   16 - Unpack the distribution tarball someplace safe.
   18 - Installation is *manual*.  The only exception is on FreeBSD where
   19   there is a port for this program.  The 'Makefile' in the
   20   distribution archive is only for the FreeBSD port and should not be
   21   used elsewhere.  THE DOCS have a nice short section on installation
   22   on various OSs.
   24 - The example '.twander' configuration file has everything commented
   25   out.  If you start the program with this configuration, *you will
   26   have no commands defined*.  Several simple Command Definition
   27   examples can be found in this file, so you can get started quickly
   28   by uncommenting one or more of them.  THE DOCS have a nice long
   29   section on writing command definitions.
   31 - There are a great many defaults for Key Bindings and Program Options
   32   which can be overriden in the Configuration File.  The example
   33   '.twander' file provided in the distribution tarball lists every one
   34   of them (and their default value, if any) as a comment.  The
   35   simplest way to change a default is to copy the relevant entry,
   36   uncomment, and edit that copy.  That way you always have
   37   documentation about the default in your configuration.  Details
   38   about each of these options can be found in THE DOCS.
   40 - This is a very powerful program with a nifty little macro language.
   41   You have to READ THE DOCS to really understand and exploit what's
   42   going on here.
   44 - You would be well served to join the 'twander-users' mailing list as
   45   documented in THE DOCS.
