Updated ToDo and INSTALL; Wrote README; Lifted COPYING and getopt*
from other packages;  removed $Id$ lines from some files

    1: This is the current state (pre-alpha) of gforth. This is not a
    2: distribution for the general public, since it is not yet mature
    3: enough. There is no warranty of any kind; this program is
    4: distributed under the GNU General Public license (see COPYING).
    5: 
    6: You will probably find a Linux binary included in the package and the
    7: configuration set up for Linux. If you want to install it on another
    8: system, read INSTALL and I wish you good luck (Mail us if you have
    9: problems).
   10: 
   11: To start the system just say `gforth'. This gives you a pretty barren
   12: system. `gforth startup.fs' gives you most ANSI wordsets. If you miss
   13: a word, just grep for it in *.fs.
   14: 
   15: If you want to work on gforth, mail me an encrypted UNIX password
   16: (i.e., what you find in /etc/passwd). Tasks to be done can be found in
   17: ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there, it's
   18: ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are doing. The
   19: most important tasks IMO are the configuartion script, the missing ANS
   20: Forth words (musts before the alpha release), speeding up the loading
   21: of startup.fs, the documentation, adding readline and the foreign
   22: language interface for C.
