* About Grip

Grip, a Grip of Really Important Procedures, is a Guile scheme toolbox currently
composed of Grip itself, Grip-SQLite, Grip-Gnome and Grip-Clutter.

Grip, Grip-SQLite and Grip-Gnome are mostly used by GNU Foliot [1] a small and 
to use time keeping application entirely written in Guile Scheme.

        Note: Grip, Grip-SQLite and Grip-Gnome need to be and will be 
rewritten, I
        started already, you'll spot that by yourself in the code if you visit 
        indeed, they come from old times, when I could not trust Guile's module
        system, Goops ... and myself [as a schemer :)].

Grip-Clutter is recent and reasonably well designed and coded, despite some 
problems, which we're working on with Guile's maintainers, but it still needs 
and some app(s) to proove this. So no fixed API yet either. It has some good 
examples, more to come soon, see

So, all this said, you are welcome to try and use Grip, keeping the above in 
come and help to get it better designed, coded and debugged, thanks!

* Changes since 0.1.0


            - fixing read-config;
            - (grip sqlite3) renamed as (grip sqlite).


            - adding sqlite/table-rename;
            - use %sqlite-* variables for all query/command strings, not
            - (grip db sqlite) should not import (grip db filters).


                  Note: Grip's Users Manual still is a mock-up.

            - undefined links fixed;
            - all sections also part of the web-pages now sync.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

        gpg --verify grip-0.1.1.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

        gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A3057AD7

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
