How fast is it?

I don't stick to perl 4 syntax for this script.  But I think that
we need not move to perl 5, if there is no merit.
The 'open ... exec' syntax is covered by perl 4.

Since we have decided that we don't support WIN32 environment,
you had better mail to the person who is distributing the WIN32 version.
You can find his site at <http://www.gnu.org/software/global/download.html>.

Sinc the C version is a simple replacement of the perl version,
we have many jobs to optimize it. But currenly, I have no idea about it.

By the way, would you please contain only one theme in one mail?
