Installation
--------------

1) Copy fetch.amirx to amirc/rexx directory

2) Install an alias in AmIRC by selecting setup menu
   then lists.  Under Alias tab, select add new alias.

3) Then in edit window type the alias you would like
   to use.

   i.e. fetch = /rx fetch %p

4) Edit the script for your site, password, and incoming directory

Usage:
--------------
Using above example, you would type

/fetch /comm/tcp/AmIRCFetch.lha    - to obtain file from default site
(wuarchive)
/fetch /comm/tcp/AmIRCFetch.lha 2  - to obtain file from site number two
/fetch CHARTS - to obtain the aminet charts file

and the file requested (if found) will be copied to the directory
specified in the fetch.amirx script. Note that the filenames are
case sensitive, it's not my fault, blame it on un*x ;)
