To: djgpp AT sun DOT soe DOT clarkson DOT EDU

I just installed the maint-2 stuff.  A reported problem with fscanf
was not fixed.  fscanf should return EOF (=-1) on an end of file
condition.  (as per Kernighan & Ritchie, second edition, pg 245)
Instead it returns 0 items read (as per the info documentation).

This behaviour breaks f2c (among other things).

BTW - the linux gcc libraries work fine.

Is the fscanf behaviour acknowledged to be an error?  When will it
be fixed?
