Recipes are collected from the eat-lf mailing list every month and are entered into the MasterCook recipe management program.
The TEXT-ZIP files are compressed plain text files. These must be unzipped after download with a program such as WinZip (Windows shareware) or Aladdin Expander (free, Macintosh and Windows). The unzipped files are plain text and also can be imported by many recipe management programs, including MasterCook.
The TEXT-1, TEXT-2, etc. files are uncompressed plain text files. These need no processing. Each month's collection is split into several such files to speed download.
