release notes:

  Ready, set, stop!


README excerpt:

  SNUGGLE: Neutralize Uncharacteristically Grotesque GUILE Library Entropy!

  This package is for programmers frustrated with libguile API churn.
  It provides a command-line program that helps manange a (very thin)
  abstraction layer between the installed libguile API and your program.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.4 | 2013-06-22

    - last release / planned disappearance: 2014-06-30

        SNUGGLE files and snuggle(1) functionality have now migrated to
        Guile-BAUX (, where
        things can evolve more quickly and there is some (faint hints of)
        documentation.  Thus, this is the last release.

        Migration is straightforward.  In (or equivalent),
        replace snuggle(1) invocations with "guile-baux-tool snuggle".

        NB: The Guile-BAUX humdrum.h lacks ‘VECREF’, which was deemed
        not so useful.  You need to use ‘VECTOR_REF’ (new, see below)
        and change callers to pass a C integer as 2nd arg, instead.

        The SNUGGLE dist dir (
        WILL BE REMOVED after 2014-06-30.

    - bugfixes

      - defsmob.h ‘DEFSMOB’ handles ‘NULL’ correctly

        Previously for Guile 1.8+, the mark, free and print funcs were
        blindly assigned to the specified values.  This would cause a
        segfault when ‘NULL’ is specified and those funcs are called.
        Now, a ‘NULL’ value is never assigned.

      - say "SNUGGLE_FLAGS" in snuggle.m4 comments

        It used to say "GUILE_FLAGS", a holdover from Guile 1.4.x roots.

    - new humdrum.h elements
      - C_CHAR
      - C_DOUBLE
      - C_LONG
