contains subdirectories with bibliography support software, and a

Files in the bibliography collection contain standard file headers
with checksum fields that include a CRC-16 checksum, followed by
counts of lines, words, and characters, such as would be produced
by the UNIX wc (word count) utility.

The checksum values are produced by Robert Solovay's checksum
utility, which is written in CWeb.  It is available in the archive
files software/checksum-1-04.*.  The archives contain source code,
and in msc/checksum.exe file there is an IBM PC MS DOS executable
compiled with Microsoft C version 5.1.

The file headers can be most easily generated by the GNU Emacs
functions in emacs/filehdr.el.  The checksums, date, and version
numbers can be easily updated with functions in that file. ISBN and
ISSN fields can be verified with functions in emacs/isbn.el.  The
files emacs/filehdr-1.22.* contain the GNU Emacs code and
