Q: What is it?

A: This is an Arexx script that will return the result of a finger command
   in a requester on the workbench screen.


Q: Why would I want to use it?

A: Because using the shell is a bind.


Q: How do I use it?

A: Type 'RX DFINGER <sitename>' in a shell OR use Toolmanager.  I have
   Toolmanager configured so that when I click on a dock on my workbench,
   it opens another dock containing my commonly fingered sites (friends,
   my mailbox etc). I can then just click one of these sites and wait for
   the requester to appear.


Q: Whats the catch?

A: If the output from a site contains quotes ("" or ''), the script MAY
   fail and may only produce a partial output or no output at all.  This
   may be possible to get around but I'm new to Arexx and dont know how
   to stop it.


Q: Anything else I should know?

A: Yes!  There are 2 variables in the script that can be altered.

	max = maximum number of lines the requester should produce at once.

	fonttag = the font to use

   Also, you need rexxreqtools.library or the script wont work.
