ABOUT
rh-ipcalc is an IP calculator which is part of Red Hat's initscripts
package.  rh-ipcalc takes an IP address and various options, and outputs
lines that can be imported as variables in an sh-compatible shell.  For
more information about Red Hat's ipcalc and initscripts packages, please
see http://rhlinux.redhat.com/initscripts/.

INSTALLATION
Extract the tarball, enter the build directory and type "make".  Move
the compiled rh-ipcalc program and the rh-ipcalc.1 man pages to
appropriate directories.

PORTING
As mentioned above, rh-ipcalc is ported from the Red Hat initscripts
package.  The "initscripts" CVS repository is downloaded, and all files
except ipcalc.c, ipcalc.1 and Makefile are removed.  ipcalc.c and
ipcalc.1 are renamed to rh-ipcalc.c and rh-ipcalc.1, respectively, and
rh-ipcalc.c and rh-ipcalc.1 are edited, changing all occurrences of
ipcalc to rh-ipcalc.  (Renaming is done so as not to conflict with
Krischan Jodies' ipcalc, available at http://jodies.de/ipcalc.) 
Makefile is modified to reflect the naming changes, and to remove all
non-rh-ipcalc build information.  This README file is added, and the
directory is packaged as rh-ipcalc-VERSION.tar.gz, where VERSION is the
YYYYMMDD date of the CVS download.
