  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  Pine 
 
  Program  for  Internet  News  &  Email.  A  tool  for  reading, 
  sending,  and  managing  electronic  messages.  It  was  designed 
  specifically  with  novice  computer  users  in  mind,  but  can  be 
  tailored  to  accommodate  the  needs  of  "power  users"  as  well 
  Pine  uses  {Internet}  message  {protocol}s  (e.g.  {RFC  822}, 
  {SMTP},  {MIME},  {IMAP},  {NNTP})  and  runs  under  {Unix}  and 
  {MS-DOS}. 
 
  The  guiding  principles  for  Pine's  user-interface  were:  careful 
  limitation  of  features,  one-character  mnemonic  commands, 
  always-present  command  menus,  immediate  user  feedback,  and 
  high  tolerance  for  user  mistakes.  It  is  intended  that  Pine 
  can  be  learned  by  exploration  rather  than  reading  manuals. 
  Feedback  from  the  {University  of  Washington}  community  and  a 
  growing  number  of  {Internet}  sites  has  been  encouraging. 
 
  Pine's  message  composition  editor,  {Pico},  is  also  available 
  as  a  separate  stand-alone  program.  Pico  is  a  very  simple  and 
  easy-to-use  {text  editor}  offering  paragraph  justification, 
  cut/paste,  and  a  spelling  checker. 
 
  Pine  features  on-line  help;  a  message  index  showing  a  message 
  summary  which  includes  the  status,  sender,  size,  date  and 
  subject  of  messages;  commands  to  view  and  process  messages;  a 
  message  composer  with  easy-to-use  editor  and  spelling  checker; 
  an  address  book  for  saving  long  complex  addresses  and  personal 
  distribution  lists  under  a  nickname;  message  attachments  via 
  {Multipurpose  Internet  Mail  Extensions};  {folder}  management 
  commands  for  creating,  deleting,  listing,  or  renaming  message 
  folders;  access  to  remote  message  folders  and  archives  via  the 
  {Interactive  Mail  Access  Protocol}  as  defined  in  {RFC  1176}; 
  access  to  {Usenet}  news  via  {NNTP}  or  {IMAP}. 
 
  Pine,  {Pico}  and  {UW}'s  {IMAP}  {server}  are  copyrighted  but 
  freely  available. 
 
  {Unix}  Pine  runs  on  {Ultrix},  {AIX},  {SunOS},  {SVR4}  and 
  {PTX}.  PC-Pine  is  available  for  {Packet  Driver},  {Novell 
  LWP},  {FTP  PC/TCP}  and  {Sun}  {PC/NFS}.  A  {Microsoft 
  Windows}/{WinSock}  version  is  planned,  as  are  extensions  for 
  off-line  use 
 
  Pine  was  originally  based  on  {Elm}  but  has  evolved  much  since 
  ("Pine  Is  No-longer  Elm").  Pine  is  the  work  of  Mike  Seibel, 
  Mark  Crispin,  Steve  Hubert,  Sheryl  Erez,  David  Miller  and 
  Laurence  Lundblade  (now  at  Virginia  Tech)  at  the  University  of 
  Washington  Office  of  Computing  and  Communications.
