This is the README file for the GNU Hello distribution.
Hello prints a friendly greeting.  It also serves as a sample GNU
package, showing practices that may be useful for GNU projects.

Bug reports:
 Please include enough information for the maintainers to reproduce the
 problem.  Generally speaking, that means:
- the contents of any input files necessary to reproduce the bug
  and command line invocations of the program(s) involved (crucial!).
- a description of the problem and any samples of the erroneous output.
- the version number of the program(s) involved (use --version).
- hardware, operating system, and compiler versions (uname -a).
- unusual options you gave to configure, if any (see config.status).
- anything else that you think would be helpful.

Patches are most welcome; if possible, please make them with diff -c and
include ChangeLog entries.

See for information on the Hello development environment --
any interested parties are welcome.  If you're a programmer and wish to
contribute, this should get you started.  If you're not a programmer,
you can still make significant contributions by writing test cases,
checking the documentation against the implementation, translating the
program strings to other languages, etc.

The basic Hello algorithm was described by B.W. Kernighan and
D.M. Ritchie.  The GNU implementation is an enhancement of the one
published in that book, brought to you by the efforts of several people.
Please see the ./AUTHORS file.

GNU Hello is free software.  See the file COPYING for copying conditions.
