The A-news archive "man page" article that Fischer
retrieved from Usenet of 1981, describing the original dsw,
is authentic so far as I can remember.  As the article
suggests, the displayed man page is a construction,
and didn't exist as such, but it indeed described what
the ancestral program did.  By a year or so later, as
documented in the First Edition manual, the behavior
and the name were already referred to as "ancient."

My, how time passes.
