Changes in this version:

  and ostream.h (thanks to Dan barthel )
* a scanner for Php3 has been written by Alain Barbet
* reading from stdin does not kill line numbers (notified by Keith
  Robertson )
* line number count is correctly reset when handling multiple files (bug
* for Java sources, if, while, and other keywords that use '(' ')' are
  now correctly highlighted as keywords instead of as functions 
  (reported by Manuel Kauers  and Fabio Calefato
* tabs are correctly handled for Prolog and Perl sources (reported by
  Martin Gebert )
