Hmph, I finally decided to go with perl. Firstly since I now
have a neato script that does what I want and secondly because I
decided to use another perl script to do automatic documentation
extraction (nothing outrageously fancy but at least it keeps the
texi documentation for each function close to the C-code for each
function so that I make some effort to keep it up to date.
I'm not making the scripts executable but I'm using
perl <scriptname> infile > outfile
and I just got it working on the Win95 box today, using the
perl that comes with DJGPP.
Thanks for those who helped,
I should be at the meeting tomorrow night (hopefully).
