The directory structure of AC

Bold type indicates directories that you will typically deal with more often. Please, keep in mind that the hierarchy shown below (e.g. $AC_WORDKIR inside $AC_DATA) is not mandatory. Many of the directories are referenced using environment variables, so they can be placed to a different point in the hierarchy, a different mount point etc.
