About the Online Product

The first edition of this book was a traditional text book, accompanied by a CD-ROM that contained all of the information mentioned in the preceding section. In the second edition, we've added to the book and completely retooled the CD-ROM. Instead of finding a set of resource files there, you'll find a software product that lets you browse the complete text of the book (using Enhanced Mosaic, also provided) and all of the specs, images, code examples, and software packages we've been able to pull together, plus (with an Internet connection) a link to the GFF Web Center.
