This support documentation is vital to understanding the Apple IIgs. ... at first glance it seems like a lot but once you have been through it it will seem slightly inadequate. This is the nature of the beast... when you are dealing with systems as complex as the ones associated with the Apple IIgs it is virtually impossible to document all the possible ways of turning it, however .. these references will take you most if not all of the way there.
