	mechanism: the begin handler (if provided) initializes
	the invocation and computes the expected number of
	output lines. If it is greater than the screen size
	the pager is enabled. End handler (if supplied) cleans

	* Change author's e-mail address in all comments.

	* gdbmopen.c, systems.h: Changed opening sequence so that a
	  database will not be truncated in NEWDB mode until the
	  write has locked the file.

	* testgdbm.c: Fixed a bug that caused a segmentation fault on
	  one computer.  Also added the flags "-r" for opening the
	  database as a READER and "-n" for opening the database as
	  a NEWDB writer.  The default mode remains the WRCREAT mode.

	* Various source files, changed the data types of various
	  variables from int to long.  This should not make any difference
	  to systems where sizeof(int) = sizeof(long).  It should make
	  it easier to move to other systems.

	* gdbmstore.c: Added a check for NULL key or content dptr.  Due to
	  NULLs being used as error indications, data cannot be NULL also.

	* gdbmfetch.c, gdbmseq.c, fetch.c: Added checks for zero sized
	  key and content so malloc will not try to allocate zero bytes.

        * gdbmconst.h: Added this file so that all constants are in one
	  central place.  A few constants can be changed without changing
	  the header sizes.

	  pointer in ...ca_data.dptr.

	* gdbmdelete.c: Added code to more completely remove the
	  cache entry for a deleted item.

	* gdbmreorg.c: Added code to finish the transfer of information
	  from the new_dbf to the orginal dbf.

Fri May 30 08:29:16 1990  Phil Nelson  (phil at unicorn.wwu.edu)

	* gdbmstore.c: Changed a strncpy to bcopy.

Tue May 15 09:55:21 1990  Phil Nelson  (phil at unicorn.wwu.edu)

	  GNUC and for sun sparc.

Fri May 11 12:15:56 1990  Phil Nelson  (phil at unicorn.wwu.edu)

	* systems.h: Removed the include for <sys/types> and now

	  to make the code more readable.

	* Version 1.2 released.

Fri Apr 27 09:49:59 1990  Phil Nelson  (phil at unicorn.wwu.edu)

	* Makefile: Added the dist option.  Similar to the 
	  addition from hack@ai.mit.edu, but correct.

	* falloc.c (push_avail_block):  Change the avail count
	  to reflect the correct number of entries.

	* dbminit.c (dbminit): Changed the stat call to stat the
	  ".dir" file as is done in dbmopen.c (dbm_open).

Tue Apr 10 12:18:40 1990  Phil Nelson  (phil at unicorn.wwu.edu)

	* Version 1.1. released.
