       view the	file /usr/local/share/doc/beav/beav.txt.

       editing.	  The file can also be read in from  the  command  line;  beav

       Data  is	 displayed in one or more windows.  These commands can be used
       to navigate around the windows.

       current key bindings.

       The abort-cmd command, Ctl-G, will abort	any command that is in	opera-
