     command '#unset recent-list' in your .ncftprc file.",

    "pseudo-filename-completion is supported in some commands.  To use it,\n\
     use a wildcard expression that will match exactly one file.  I.e., if you\n\
     want to fetch obnoxiouslylongfilename.zip, try 'get obn*.zip.'  Note that\n\
     you can't use the cd command with this feature (yet).",

    "You don't need to type the exact site name with open.  If a site is in\n\
     your .ncftprc or the recent-file (.ncrecent), just type a unique\n\
     abbreviation (substring really).   I.e. 'open wuar' if you have the site\n\
     wuarchive.wustl.edu in your rc or recent-file.",

     as '#set local-dir /usr/tmp' to the file, which will be run at startup.",

    "Use the .ncftprc file to set variables at startup and to add sites that \n\
     need init macros.\n\
     Sample .ncftprc:\n\
     #set pager \"less -M\"\n\

     machine wuarchive.wustl.edu\n\
         macdef init\n\

     ncftp's rc to .ncftprc.",

     your .ncftprc.  You can then supply '#5' at the prompt, or use 'open #5'\n\
     later.",

    "Colon-mode is a quick way to get a file from your shell.  Try something\n\
     like 'ncftp wuarchive.wustl.edu:/pub/README.'",

    "The open command accepts several flags.  Do a 'help open' for details.",

    "Sometimes a directory listing is several screens long and you won't\n\
     remember the thing you wanted.  Use the 'predir' command to re-view the\n\
     listing.  The program keeps the copy locally, so you won't have to wait\n\
     for the remote server to re-send it to you.",

    "Use the 'page' (or 'more') command to view a remote file with your pager.",

     supports the SIZE command, and whether your terminal is capable of ANSI\n\
     escape codes.",

    "To report a bug, mail your message to mgleason@cse.unl.edu.  Include the\n\
     output of the 'version' command in your message.  An easy way to do that\n\
     is to compose your message, then do a 'ncftp -H >> msg.'",

    "Don't put a site in your .ncftprc unless you want an 'init' macro.  The \n\
     recent-file saves sites with the last directory you were in, unlike \n\
