The documentation is still very much a work in progress. I am continually refining it to make it easier to navigate so please be patient. Any queries can be addressed to me at


For those who prefer their documentation in paper form, I have made a PDF version of the Paloose documentation that is based the Web site pages and should be considered the definitive version. I created it by using a XSL to LaTeX transformation directly from the web site's documentation XML pages and then reformatted it. It is hoped that there is now difference between the versions.
