The Handle System is a general-purpose global name service that allows 
secured name resolution and administration over the public Internet.  
The Handle System manages handles, which are unique names for digital 
objects and other Internet resources. This document provides a detailed 
description of the Handle System namespace, data and service model, as 
well as its operation and authentication protocol. It assumes that 
readers are familiar with the basic concepts of the Handle System as 
introduced in the overview document.

In the body type:

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
