libutils library is a hodgepodge of routines that I have found usefull at one time or another. There is a fixed version of fgets that is similar to the old Pascal readln, there are routines for parsing command line arguments with assorted bells and whistles, assorted string routines, including some routines that can convert delimited strings into arrays of sub-strings and vice-versa, and assorted other stuff that I have found myself rewritting again and again.
You can build the static library just by typing 'make'
make all will build both static and shared libraries as well as the test code
make clean will erase all the stuff made during the build process
make install will put the libraries and header files where they should go
make backup will make a backup tarball of the source directory
make test will make the test programs
make tests will make the test programs and run them
Again, I am sorry that this isn't up to proper form with configure scripts and xmkmf stuff. I do intend to get such stuff working, but I haven't had time yet.
