| Cole is a free C OLE library. It is released under GPL to help more
| software be released as free software. Cole can handle Microsoft
| OLE's Structured Storage and Compound Files. Such formats are
| used in the files generated by the Microsoft suite for offices. Cole

| Fixed a little bug that may prevent compilation under Solaris.
