+Grecs README
+Copyright (C) 2011 Sergey Poznyakoff
+See the end of file for copying conditions.
+
+* Introduction
+
+This file contains brief information about configuring, testing
+and installing Grecs library. It is *not* intended as a replacement
+for the documentation, and is provided as a brief reference only.
+The complete documentation for Grecs is available in the
+doc/ subdirectory, both as a set of manpages and as texinfo
+documents. To access the latter without installing the package
+run `info -f doc/grecs.info'. After the package is installed
+the documentation can be accessed by running `info grecs'.
+
+An online copy of the documentation in various formats is available
+at http://grecs.man.gnu.org.ua.
+
+* Overview
+
+Grecs is a library for parsing structured configuration files from
+C programs. A structured configuration file has hierarchical
+structure, with block statements enclosing lower-level
+statements. Such configurations files are used by many programs, such
+as, e.g. Bind or Dico.
+
+Grecs provides primitives for parsing such files into an internal
+tree-like structure and for basic operations on such structures. These
+operations include value lookups by keyword paths, traversing trees
+recursively, joining several trees together, reductions, etc.
+
+* Downloads
+
+New versions of Libgrecs are available for download from
+
+ ftp://download.gnu.org.ua/pub/release/grecs
+
+* Building
+
+The usual build rules apply:
+
+ ./configure [OPTIONS]
+ make
+ make install
+
+For generic installation instructions, including a discussion of
+available [OPTIONS], see the file INSTALL in this directory.
