The current list of TOPIC (KEYWORD) terms may be obtained via the anonymous ftp server preprint.slac.stanford.edu (login-name: anonymous, password: your-userid). Use cd preprints/Miscellaneous , and then get hep.keywords. Note that this is a huge (1.2Mb) ASCII file.
SLAC/SPIRES databases are brought to WWW via the remote server QSPIRES. There is no, as yet, a dedicated SPIRES/WWW guide or manual, but the SLAC report "Guide to QSPIRES" (see below) may be helpful in many cases.
The full title of the document is "Guide to QSPIRES and the Particle Physics Databases on SLACVM" (SLAC-Report-393). It may be obtained free of charge from the SLAC's Publication Department. Send your request for the SLAC-393 Report, and your complete mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org

signoff ppf-LCommands should be sent in the body of your e-mail message; they are ignored if put in the Subject: line. The list manager (a real person!) can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com . The latest PPF is also available online.
Return to the main HEP-database page, select help for the BROWSE or SHOW commands, or see instructions for displaying the result.
