* Previous history before unflattening, from version 3.0 and up:
All kept in src/ChangeLog.
* Previous history as saved from some oldish recode.texi:
August 1988:
Some tentative new charsets for TeX and texinfo, steps
merged and made more uniform, usage of Unix pipes
instead of translating chunks one at a time.
Loïc Dachary first exposed me to Easy French. Claude
Goutier, through numerous discussions, was helpful in
evaluating various work hypotheses.
July 1988:
Ported to BSD Unix, bent to meet most GNU standards.
December 1987:
Ported to Microsoft C, tables frozen instead of being
computed by auxiliary programs at installation time,
translation sequences sought at execution time instead
of built-in in the program.
July 1985:
Adapted in Turbo-Pascal on an IBM-PC, translation
tables completely redesigned. Dropping of CAF, RUB
and INT support; ASCII now used as a common base.
* Previous history as found in `secours,/s=codes,recode' output:
March 1983:
Version 2.0.
Merge of features from all versions. New extensive
documentation, in French. Handling of French for 95
character CDC printers.
November 1982:
Version 1.0.
Modified to handle NOS (NOS 6/12 code), INT (Intercom 8/12
code), RUB (7.5 characters per word, for tapes), support of
EBCDIC translations. Restructuration into a few main
modules, one of which is CODES. Made in preparation for
the Cray-1 at Canadian Meteorological Center.
December 1981:
Revision of comparison routines for French processing,
several suggestions from Francine Ouellette.
December 1980:
A few speedups and improvements. My own definition of
extended ASCII, quite compatible with various usages at
Université de Montréal.
July 1980:
Module GEN broken into several modules: ASC (ascii), BNG
(bang-bang), CAF (format for CAFÉ project), DPC (usual
display code), and TEL (TELUM packing). Made in context
of some research for the PPMF group and the BLOPS project.
January 1980:
Unified module named GEN and program named GENCOP, in
Cyber Pascal and assembler, partly inspired from NOS/BE
Record Manager, partly from Claude Schnéegans' PESTUM
Before 1980:
Several independant programs, most in Cyber COMPASS
assembler, to handle code conversions. A few tries to
get some useful, unified, general approach, but with
limited success.
