(no user visible change)

Version 0.3 - November 1993, by Franc,ois Pinard

* GNU ptx installs as a single program, -G option dynamically reverts
to the System V compatible behaviour, yet being liberal with options.

* It should install more easily on more systems, source code is
unprotoized on the fly for older C compilers.

* A default ignore file is installed along with GNU ptx, ptx uses it.

* Options -F, -S and -W interpret most \-escapes themselves.

* Option -M can be use to change "xx" to another macro name.

* CHRCLASS environment variable is obeyed for systems supporting it.

* Long option names have been cleaned up a little.

* Some examples are given in the example/ directory structure.


Version 0.2 - October 1991, by Franc,ois Pinard

* Reference format (with -A) has been modified slightly to better
comply with GNU standards for line reporting.

* Option -p removed, rather compile two separate programs, one with
GNU extensions, the other being strict on System V compatibility.


Version 0.1 - August 1990, by Franc,ois Pinard

* Add many options: -L for Latin1, -R for automatic referencing, -W
for regular expressions describing words, -S for regular expressions
describing end of lines or sentences.  Let -F specify the truncation
strings.

* Implementing Ignore files and Only files.

* Option -p dynamically enforces strict System V compatibility.

* Correct a few bugs and portability problems, have faster input,
faster processing, and use less memory.

* Initial release.
