Hello all,

good to see this list is still alive, it's the only place where I 
encounter other rc users :)

A couple of things:

- Concerning Byron's offer to get 1.5 out of the door, I can help testing
  under SCO Openserver, FreeBSD 2.1.x, Solaris 1 and 2.

  I'd sure like to have a single rc package, without the need to grab
  different patches from various sources. An autoconf script would be
  nice as well, shouldn't be too difficult.

- Also, there have been some mails recently regarding rc and readline.
  Some time ago, I wrote a readline replacement that does cmdline
  editing/history, filename completion, etcetera. 
  It is call-compatible with readline() from an rc point of view,
  but smaller and doesn't exhibit these signal handling problems 
  (I hope, it's a bug otherwise :) I can't put it up for ftp 
  unfortunately, but can mail it if someone is interested. 

- Last but not least: for my work, I'll be moving from UNIX to Windows NT.
  Does anyone know about an rc version for NT ? Microsoft has some
  POSIX.1 support, but it's hardly worth mentioning. Maybe someone tried
  NutCracker or a similar product ?


PS: Byron, good luck with your studies in Utrecht. I went to school there
    and graduated from the RUU, not a bad place to live&work :-)
