Log Message:
Update global to 4.0.1, from patches by Hubert

September 26 2000, Shigio Yamaguchi  <>

        * use generated path of perl for global.cgi.
        * global.1, htags.1, btreeop.1: fix missing .El.
        * make version number 'major.minor.fixed'.

September 3 2000, Shigio Yamaguchi  <>

        * license changed from BSD-style to GPL.
        * now generated automatically by automake and autoconf.
        * nvi-1.79-gtags.diff: put into the public domain.
        * command path in global.cgi becomes generated
          at execution time. usable() changed to return path.
        * optimized about temporary database.
        * most code which depend on javascript are removed
          because most of browsers don't support the language.
        * mgets.c: now belongs strbuf.c as strbuf_fgets().
        * strbuf.c: new argment 'initial buffer size' of strbuf_open().
        * global.conf: one line script for ctags-exuberant fixed.
        * Cpp.h, java.h: MAXCLASSSTACK changed from 10 to 100.
        * use snprintf(3) instead of sprintf(3).
        * replace Henry Spencer's regex(3) with GNU's one.
        * gctags/C.c: ignore 'extern' to treat 'extern func() { ...}'.
        * global.c: use grep(1) if grep and xargs(1) are available.
        * global.c: use find(1) if find is available.
        * gtags.el: reimplement as a minor mode (gtags-mode) and
          a major mode (gtags-select-mode) to work with other major mode
          like c-mode.
          prefix 'gtags-' added to all functions to avoid conflicts with
          other packages..
