Ah, MS Windows.

Under Unix and Unix-like systems, you can request a manual entry with
the 'man' command.  So, to get the manual entry for 'dig', one would
enter 'man dig'.  All at a command-line interface, of course.  There
are also one or two various GUI interfaces to the same facility.

There SHOULD be a 'dig' manual entry in your source code set, but I
wouldn't have a clue how to ask for it under MS Windows.  I will send
you a formatted copy separately [after stripping out bolding and
underlining that is done with (backspace-overprint)s].
