a few days ago, DEK released 'CWEB 3.64ae' and directed support questions to
your address. Following is a list of issues I'd like to see addressed:
* Do not pack backup files, ctangled sources, and executables in the archive;
this concerns the 'examples/' subdirectory.
* The expanded 'ctangle.c' somehow doesn't match its origin 'ctangle.w';
it uses '<stdlib.h>' instead of predeclaring 'string' functions and it is
unclear, where this (manual?) change comes from.
* 'wordtest.w' should define 'PHICLONE' as 'unsigned' by appending a 'u'
to the numeric value to avoid a compiler warning.
A multi-decade project to improve and extend CWEB can be found at
https://github.com/ascherer/cwebbin – it contains far too many details to list
here, but at least on Linux (both RPM and DEB) it makes use of the unmodified
source drop 'cweb-3.64ae.tar.gz' and applies its stuff on top.
