The rules are: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!

OK, here goes...

The Book is:

Command Language Cookbook
For Mainframes, MiniComputers, and PC's

by Hallett German

The fifth sentence(and the subsequent ones):
