      CHAPTER 1
      The Problem and its Background

      Introduction

      This manual is the culmination of months work. This is the
      first edition of a compilation originally written for Blue Eyes
      Computer System. This is written specifically for the need's of the
      current user This edition is intended to be a basis much improved
      programs in the future. User's feedback will be valuable information
      to enable the authors come with the improvements.

      The authors; Jefrel Ann Hernandez, Mio Dominique Budayao,
      Joice Ann Tayangona and Alexander Arabiran conceived an idea that
      to learn a system the reader needn't be for trial and error method.
      To learn the system, one has to master how to do the task and not
      through the repetitive chores of trials and errors.

      For example, After a reader has learned to use the specific
      buttons there is no need to require the reader to manipulate or use
      the buttons hundreds of times before moving on to the next.
