It is available as WikiText source, DocBook XML, an ASCII text file, an HTML World Wide Web page, Postscript, PDF, Plucker, and as a USENET news posting.
DocBook XML is generated from WikiText source using wt2db. HTML is generated from the XML using the LDP's XSL customization layer on top of Norm Walsh's standard DocBook XSL stylesheets. Text is generated from the HTML using lynx. Most of these programs are found in most Linux distributions.
The Usenet version is posted regularly to news:news.answers, news: comp.answers, and news:comp.os.linux.misc. It is archived at ftp:// rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/comp/os/linux/misc.
