  Each variable has a separate help file to explain how it is used.  Type
"help v_<variable>" to read a specific file.  For example, to read about the
Time variable you would type "help v_time".  The complete list of variable
help files is given in "help manual_vars".

  Variable settings are changed by using the "set" command.  For example, "set
time 5".  When a variable has been modified, you will be informed of the new
setting as a way of verifying it.


(a) Only you and admins can see the setting for your tzone variable.  We want
to keep your location confidential.

of course]
