Making your own menus

The main current deficiency of the menu browser interface is that at the moment the browser is read-only. For now, you will have to learn a bit about the command-line client interface in order to set up new directories under Prospero, in order to change the names of menu items, and in order to create new links. We are currently working to put most of the power of the command line interface into the menu browser so that one does not have to use two user interfaces for most purposes.

To make your own menus, you will have to learn the set_atr command, to set attributes on objects, the vln command, to make new links, and the vmkdir command, to make subdirectories.
