We are glad to announce a long-awaited bug-fix release of GNU gperf which
corrects code issues preventing it from being compiled with GNU C++ versions
4.0.x and 4.1.x.

GNU gperf is a perfect hash function generator. For a given list of strings,
it produces a hash function and hash table, in form of C or C++ code, for
looking up a value depending on the input string.  The hash function is
perfect, which means that the hash table has no collisions, and the hash table
lookup needs a single string comparison only.

Output from the gperf program is used to recognize reserved words in the GNU
C, GNU C++, and GNU Pascal compilers, as well as with the GNU indent program.

The full set of changes new to GNU gperf version 3.0.2 are:

* Compiles with GNU C++ 4.x.
* Added option --length-table-name.
* Added declaration %define length-table-name.
* Fixed  #line directives for filenames containing backslashes.

Many thanks to Bruno Haible for his continued support and good hacking on
