Subject: Second draft chapter of "The Art of Unix Programming" released

I have made the second draft chapter of my book-in-progress, "The Art of Unix
Programming", available at

        http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/writings/taoup/

Chapter 2, "On Not Reinventing The Wheel", discusses code reuse and
open source, with a focus on the issue in evaluating source code for
reuse.

I have also updated Chapter 1, "Philosophy matters".
