Alpha release 0.2 of the CDROM filesystem, plus modifications
to the SCSI code to read CDROM disks.

ALPHA test version 7 of the MSDOS filesystem, by Werner
This describes a driver for QIC-02 tape drive support for
NOTE1: This will not work for the QIC-40/QIC-80 tape drives,
like the well-known tape drives that attach to the floppy
NOTE2: If you are working on another (e.g. SCSI or QIC-40)
tape driver, please try to use the same sys/mtio.h file! Also,

ZIP 1.0 w/ encryption code. Note that file can *not* be
exported across U.S. or Canadian boundaries. If you are from
a non-U.S. or non-Canadian site, you will have to get this
file through some other means. Keep in mind that even if you
are not in the U.S., if your country is one of the 20 or so
that signed the COCOM treaty, you will not be able to
export it outside your country without an export license either,
even to another COCOM country.
Also, if you are in France, the *importation* of cryptopgraphic
code is illegal, and you may not use any cryptographic
techniques unless you provide copies of all of your keys to
the French Secret Service ahead of time.

Adduser - tool for adding new users to the system
This package consists of two programs, mkpwent and adduser.
The first is a C program which simply puts a new entry into
/etc/passwd. You have to supply all the values on the command
line, and it does a few simple checks to make sure the login
shell exists and is executable, for example, then writes a new
/etc/passwd file, backing up the old one in /etc/passwd.OLD.
The second program, adduser, is a (BASH) shell script which
has all the system-dependent bits encoded in it. Essentially
what it does is call mkpwent and then create all the
directories and miscellaneous files required in setting up a
user account. It is intended to be straightforward to modify
the shell commands after the mkpwent program succeeds for
Zmodem v3.18 for Linux. Ready to compile with GCC 2.2.2.
It contains mf, the metafont binary (gcc2.2.2 shared link) and
also included macros, etc for the standard cm fonts for TeX.
includes a miniscule readme & note on usage.
Cprint is a small utility that can apply Tex formatting to
ordinary C source files. Cprint takes in a plain ascii text
file and produces a TeX file that can be pumped through TeX
and dvixxx to produce high quality hardcopy. While cprint can
do some very basic formatting with any text file (see below),
it is specifically designed to handle C source files.
It's a source-only release that doesn't contain any
ANSI-isms anymore and that compiles with gcc 2.x.
