You mean you don't still have your green children's block book?!?!?

*Grabs face with hands in mock horror*

It's right there on pages 592-594.  (*High-fives Eric for good memory cells*)

(For anyone who's never seen the "green children's block book", I'm of course
 refering to "UNIX Programmer's Manual, Seventh Edition, Volume 2", published
 by Holt, Rinehart & Winston, ISBN 0-03-061743-X.)
