documentation: Updates to get rid of PRINC variable.
I did not eliminate this variable but rather changed the description to indicate that it has been deprecated and that the user should now use a PR Service to do this stuff. There were several areas in the YP manual set that used the variable in code. I just deleted those lines from the code.
