4.0.6 Useful Toys

Moving the mouse so that the cursor is in the dark gray background area and pressing the middle mouse button will show some ``toys". These are a clipboard, news (which is the same as xrn), and a calculator. The clipboard allows a person to keep memos or reminders for him- or her-self. news will allow one to search through material posted by many news groups. The calculator is fairly self-explanatory. The clipboard and news have a quit option. If you open a calculator, you can ``kill" it later with the kill option under the left mouse button, or by pressing <CONTROL> C, or by typing :q as one would within vi.
