enough, so that it does not have to be updated much. The other possibility
is to generate the file from some manual page with mac specific info but
this would require to have some html2rtf which we currently don't have.

If general, non detailed file is what we want, I will change it once I will
get some inspiration and time but if you or somebody else has some idea,
feel free to rewrite the file.

Thanks for explanation, William.

PS: What is the safe way of editing RTF file (which looks OK on Mac)?
