---------------
1. Include man pages for arim: arim(1) which documents command
   line options, and arim(5) which documents the arim.ini file.
2. Add new ARQ mode command '/sm' for sending a message to the
   remote station. The message is automatically addressed to
   the remote station callsign and sent to the inbox there.
   Two forms can be used:
      /sm message-text
   or
      /sm 
   If message text follows the command the message is immediately
   transferred to the inbox at the remote station. Otherwise, the
   message composer view opens. Enter the message line-by-line
   at the command prompt. When done, enter '/ex' at the start of
   a new line on a line by itself to close the composer view and
   send the message to the inbox at the remote station. To cancel
   a message you've started enter '/can' on a line by itself to
   discard the message and close the composer view.
3. New command line option '--config-file' (or '-f') allows you
   to specify an alternate configuration file when invoking arim.
   Use 'arim --help' to print out all command line options.
4. Improve error handling for ARQ mode commands.
5. Update embedded Help and PDF Help file.
