{version = 1.14; (* of sqz.p 1994 sep 5}

(* begin module describe.sqz *)
   sqz: squeeze the input file to fit into fewer characters per line

   sqz(fin: in, fout: out, output: out, sqzp: in);

   fin: a text file with lines longer than 80 characters
   fout: the squeezed file.  all lines that end with the endofline symbol
      are to be continued on the next line.
      the endofline symbol is written out as the first character of the
      file, so that the unsqz program can use it.
      if the endofline symbol is found anywhere in the fin file,
      then the fout will be emptied, and the program will halt.
   sqzp: if not empty, then the first character redefines
      the endofline symbol.
   output: messages to the user

   for transportation, this program allows a file to be compressed
   to fewer than 80 characters per line.
