+= Introduction =
+Acme Stand Alone Complex is a distribution of the Inferno operating system
that focuses on Acme as user interface, shell, editor, and browser for
inferno's distributed services.
+This project is being hosted at google called acme-sac
+All the source can be downloaded from svn as well as packages for Windows,
MacOSX, and Linux.

+= CONFIGURING ACME =
+Acme.exe is the same (mostly) as emu(1) so the command line arguments are
the same (except for -I). Acme.exe reads the EMU environment variable for
options first, then processes the command line options.
+If no dis command is given on the command line to Acme.exe then the
default command is 'sh -l', see sh(1). The -l option will cause the shell
to run as a login shell, which means it first runs the file
/lib/sh/profile, and then lib/profile if that file exists.
+/lib/sh/profile is mostly concerned with making sure a home directory
exists for the current user, then changing to that directory, so the
lib/profile in that users directory will be run.
+It is your $home/lib/profile where most of the action is. It sets up
various things, namespace, factotum, environment variables (e.g. for
fonts), and finally it launches acme.
+If you want to change the arguments that start the actual acme editor then
edit your $home/lib/profile.
+If you want to change the command line arguments the Acme.exe, the
emulator, then either modify EMU environment var, or on Nt create a
shortcut, modify its properties changing the command line with the options
+Also, edit $home/lib/profile if you want to add more things to your
namespace at startup.
