    Roscoe has built in training for new users.

    There are two of them available.

    “TUTORIAL”  -     An interactive training module that gives information about ROSCOE.


    “TRAINING”  -    An introduction to RPF’s  


    Although they are old and they don’t contain any up to date information they are still a great tools to get started.


    They can be accessed in Roscoe on any main system by simply typing

    TRAINING or TUTORIAL while in ROSCOE on the ROSCOE command line.
