The Complete Guide to the NeXTSTEP User Environment is a book/diskette combination describing the advanced, object-oriented NeXTSTEP User Environment for NeXT and Intel-based computers. It is intended for those who already own a computer running NeXTSTEP and want to quickly learn what it can do, and how to get the most out of it with the least effort. It's also for those who are considering the purchase of NeXTSTEP but want to learn more about how it works. This is not just a "getting started" manual, but a book that describes how to make NeXTSTEP work for you. It provides numerous tips and tricks, shortcuts and commentary, and is written to make you feel as if you are sitting next to a veteran who can guide you through the NeXTSTEP user environment and steer you away from common pitfalls. Inside you not only learn about the NeXTSTEP User Environment, but also about the many applications bundled with it such as Draw, Edit, PrintManager, FaxReader, Digital Librarian, and more! There's even descriptions of popular public domain and shareware applications and how to find hidden treasures buried within NeXTSTEP that most users overlook. Some of the more advanced topics discussed include: How to take advantage of networked resources.- How to use UNIX commands within NeXTSTEP.- How to recover from application and system crashes.- How to customize NeXTSTEP to meet your needs.- How to find related NeXTSTEP information. The enclosed 3 1/2'' 1.4 MB high-density NeXTSTEP diskette includes NeXTSTEP applications, fonts, sample sounds and images to quickly speed you on your way to understanding and making great use of the most elegant system software available today. An electronic version of the popular public domain document, "Incomplete Guide to the Internet" (over 200 pages!), is also included. The diskette is formatted for NeXTSTEP, and works with both NeXT and Intel-based computer systems.

This book is about the advanced, object-oriented NEXTSTEp (TM) user envi- ronment for NeXT and Intel-based computers. When I set out to learn how to use NEXT- STEP several years ago, I found it extremely difficult to find information from the usual sources, such as books, magazines, user groups, and autho- rized dealers.
