Introduction ************ This is the 0.3 beta release of `ptx', the GNU version of a permuted index generator. This software has the main goal of providing a replacement for the traditional `ptx' as found on System V machines, able to handle small files quickly, while providing a platform for more development. This version reimplements and extends traditional `ptx'. Among other things, it can produce a readable "KWIC" (keywords in their context) without the need of `nroff', there is also an option to produce TeX compatible output. This version does not handle huge input files, that is, those files which do not fit in memory all at once. *Please note* that an overall renaming of all options is foreseeable. In fact, GNU ptx specifications are not frozen yet.
