=== Filtering of text files ===
This functionality is used for example in creating the extended booch components. It is also used in conjunction with AdaCL.CGI to create dynamic web pages.

A Get_Line which really works. Raw String I/O. Search and Replace in strings. A special string type with support for Internationalization.
