Instructions for Users

executable file if it isn't already.

it may display the patch program as text, since this is a script file. If
so, simply save this text to disk and make the file executable.
Note that you only have to do step 1 once; you can reuse the same
tabriz_patch program to install all current or future Tabriz patches.

you've installed, including both primary and secondary installations.
- If you've already installed a patch and try to install it again, you'll
be told it's already there. You can go ahead and re-install it if you
want to (e.g., if you think you might've lost some of the changes).
- If you run tabriz_patch and do not specify any file on the command line,
it will produce a list of the patches you have already installed, and
the dates when they were installed. General Magic's customer support folks
may ask you for this information to help them understand any problems
