                                                   Source code is distributed
   in whatever manner the software author desires. Frequently this is a
   tarred and gzipped file, but it might be compressed with some other tool
   or even uncompressed. The program source code, whatever form it comes in,
   is called a ``distfile''. You can get the distfile from a CD-ROM or from
   the Internet.
