Contents of the README.1ST file
The following programs are from the Winter 1987 issue of The C Gazette
(Vol II, 3). All the source code is copyrighted, and it is expected
that users who wish to see the continued publication of a code-intensive
C magazine such as the C Gazette will respect these copyrights. While
the code may be freely distributed, the copyright notice(s) must be
retained. The source code cannot be sold for profit--a nominal charge
for media and duplication is, however, allowed and should not exceed
US$10 per diskette. The object code form of these programs may be used
freely unless otherwise stated in the program's introductory comments.
The enclosed files are:
ARITHCOD.ARC - UNIX version of data compression by arithmetic coding
BEAN.C - Gries coffee-bean conundrum
BREAK.C - DeSmet routine for trapping control-C/Control break
BREAKASM.A - DeSmet A88 file to work with break.c
CRUNCH.C - Compresses recurring sequences. Works with uncrunch.c
DATESRT.C - Date validation routine (Part III)
INSTALL.C - File to work with break.c
INTVEC.H - File to work with install.c
LBR.C - Lump files into one library and manage them there
OS.H - File for install.c
PTRCONV.C - File for install.c and related programs.
UNCRUNCH.C - Uncrunches files compressed by crunch.c
These files run untouched under UNIX but not under MS-DOS. Because
we only recently received permission to distribute the files, we are still
checking the port to DOS (interestingly it's not a simple direct task).
All persons receiving the UNIX version will receive the DOS version shortly.
