GNU vmslib -- Helps people port GNU software to VMS.

GNU vmslib is a bunch of files and small routines that can help people to 
port GNU programs to VMS.  It consists of a C function library, with routines 
that are missing in the current system C libraries that have been seen so far, 
maybe with the exception of GNU libc.  In GNU vmslib, there are also a bunch 
of scripts (in VMS terminology, they are called `command procedures')
which help a lot in writing makefiles, and other scripts.  There is more,
please read the README file in each directory for further instruction.

program that you can use in itself.  Rather, you will tend to copy a few,
or maybe all of the files to whatever other GNU program you wish to port.

files to the right other GNU packages.
