I think we had this discussion before (when RMK's changes hit us), and
it was decided not to do this.  IIRC we decided not to do this.

I have never understood why this mach_types thingy was needed (other
rchitectures worked fine without it, or better), and now we are on the
edge of obsoleting it. So all efforts trying to maintain this file are
futile, and we would have to redo these for any updates of the file.

I feel this is not a good investment of our time.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk

:       I've tried (in vi) "g/[a-z]\n[a-z]/s//_/"...but that doesn't
: cut it.  Any ideas?  (I take it that it may be a two-pass sort of solution).
In the first pass, install perl. :-) Larry Wall <6849 at jpl-devvax.JPL.NASA.GOV>
