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 README-dev for information on the 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, your help in writing test cases, checking the documentation against the implementation, translating the program strings to other languages, etc., would still be very much appreciated. The basic Hello algorithm was described by B.W. Kernighan and D.M. Ritchie. The GNU implementation is substantially more complex, in order to be a canonical example of a GNU package. Many people have contributed; please see the ./AUTHORS and ./ChangeLog files. GNU Hello is free software. See the file COPYING for copying conditions.
