combine 0.3.3

combine 0.3.3 has been released and is now available by FTP from ftp.gnu.org.

Combine is a utility for joining files according to matches on one or more key fields. It has additional features for filtering and transforming data, for accumulating information on all the records that match another one, and for dealing with data in recursive hierarchies.

Combine uses Guile scheme for extensibility wherever a user may want to transform data or filter the process.

The biggest difference from "join" is that the files need not be sorted by the matching keys. In addition, several files may be matched at once to a single base file or stream.

Combine is now a GNU package. This is the first release since combine was so dubbed. Otherwise, the changes from version 0.3.2 are a few changes to help ensure compatibility.

The bug-combine mailing list does not yet exist at gnu.org, so please send any comments directly to me for the time being.
