ChangeLog
=========
Charsets
========
+ Clean up applemac vs macintosh and ibmpc vs ibm437.
+ Implement RFC1345 more fully.
+ Generalize older charsets (latex, texte, etc.) to RFC 1345 mnemonics.
+ Support VT320 support and related character sets. (Alain Simon)
+ Support @code{[nt]roff} diacritics.
+ Support Universite de Montreal *accent* convention.
+ ~/pinard/codes/mule/courriel/
Surfaces
========
+ Implement some invbits over 8, 7 or 6 bits, maybe more.
+ CR-LF, in ibmpc.c (implied by IBMPC?)
+ CR, in applemac.c (implied by Apple-Mac?)
+ Message headers [RFC 1342]
+ Mnemonic and Mnemo (maybe?) [RFC 1345]
+ Integrate -c and -g into charsets.
+ Find something for ``recode -g ibmpc:ibmpc`` to do what it suggests
+ Option -M (implying -i) to process MIME headers
Mechanics
=========
+ Intercept signals to cleanup the temporary files in any event.
+ Revise --sequence=pipe thoroughly.
+ Rewrite execute_pipe_sequence for having only one child per parent.
+ Revise --force thoroughly.
+ Rewrite .l converses for lat1{asci,ltex,txte}, for --force.
+ Optimize/merge all one-to-many cases.
+ Write a better ``make check``, not as partial and forgiving.
+ Modify recode so I can get rid of diacrit.[ch] (elsewhere).
+ Have -l know which output charset to use (Martin Maechler, 93-12-07).
+ Take note that ->RFC1345 recodings are non reversible.
Notes about MSDOS port
======================
+ I had to ``touch stamp-h``.
+ @PRODUCT@ and @VERSION@ were not substituted.
+ Replace PRODUCT by PACKAGE within config_h.*.
+ One should have -DHAVE_CONFIG_H=1 (the ``=1`` is required).
+ charset.c:637: Maybe incorrect assignment in init_table_for_rfc1345().
+ LIBINTL.OBJ and LOCALE.OBJ were not compiled.
+ Rule to compile LIBINTL.OBJ was missing.
+ readme.tcc should become README.DOS as things go.
