	Hmm. ucf does show the user the changes, and even offers to
 merge maintainer changes into the current configuration file.

	What functionality do you think ucf is missing?

quit When the quit statement is read, the bc processor is terminated,
regardless of where the quit state- ment is found.  For example, "if
(0 == 1) quit" will cause bc to terminate. (Seen in the manpage for
"bc". Note the "if" statement's logic)
