Many mirrors have been slow to pick it up.  It was a tremendous improvement
over earlier versions for me on W95 and has worked trouble-free on NT,
hpux10.20, and irix6.4.

"makefile:48: *** missing separator.  Stop.

To me this is a serious problem; it occurs when I add new lines or
delete lines entirely. It happens whether or not I have a unix or dos
line type. The only way I can get around it is to keep my makefile on a
unix box on the internet and make changes there and ftp it across,
because once I change the length of the file or add lines or whatnot, I
get this seperator problem. "

I'm not sure I understand this.  Do you wind up with a mixture of <LF> and
>CR><LF> terminated lines after editing?  Is your editor set up to expand tabs
upon insertion? If so, turn it off or use a different editor.  

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"" with one line of text: "help".
