      Description

      I found many things wrong with Chapter 4 in the NEOworks Getting Started
      Answerbook.

      1. On page 4.1, under 4., there is not StockMarket.osl file to copy.

      2. On page 4-2, under 5., the source for StockMarket has copyright information
          and the following:
          
           // Setting a common logical-id prefix to prevent cross-machine
           // development probs.
           #pragma prefix "stockmarket.sample"
           
      3. On page 4-2, under 6 the osl file had to be written by scratch.

      4. On page 4-2. under 8, when I did the osmaker I received errors from
          DateServer.osl. The import line should have the idl file in double
          quotes and the line should end with a semicolon.
          
      5. On page 4-3 under 14 the Date code call has a MERGE and true additional
          parameters.
            ObjectRef obj = find("DateServer", MERGE, true);
            
      6. On page 4.4, under 17, I didn't replace StockMarket with DateServer.
           I replaced StockMarket with Date. I didn't need to change the JAVA_FILEs
           entry.
            
      7. On page 4-4, under 17, when I did a make it couldn't find Date.pp.
           I renamed StockMarket.pp to be Date.p
           
      8. On page 4.4, under 17, when I did a make it told me
            "make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target
      `classes/idlGlobal/DateOperations.class'"
            
      I couldn't figure out what to do next.
