       The LifeLines documentation should be installed as part of the  instal-
       lation,	and  may  also	be  viewed  at	the  project site: http://mar-	 Look  for  ll-userguide  and  ll-reportmanual
       (with appropriate extensions for	text, html and pdf formats).  The nor-
       mal installation	process	includes a large number	of sample report  pro-
       grams that you can customize to suit your needs.	 In the	directory con-
       taining these reports you should	find a	file  named  index.html	 which
       gives a very brief summary of each report.
