/***
 *
 * This is a dynamic string library which supports strings which automatically
 * resize themselves when needed.  The strings know their own size, so getting
 * the length of a string is a fast operation and storing zeroes in the
 * strings is permissable.
 *
 * The strings are stored in malloc blocks and have the following format:
 *
 *   <bksize><length><string><zero>
 *
 * 'bksize' and 'length' are ints which give the size of the malloc block
 * and the length of the string.  A zero character always follows the string
 * for compatibility with normal C zero-terminated strings.  The zero is not
 * counted in the string length.
 *
 * To further the compatibility with C strings, the address of a dynamic string
 * is at <string> above, not at <bksize> (whose address is the start of the
 * malloc block).  Thus, dynamic strings can be passed as arguments to UNIX
 * operating system functions and C library function, but they can not be freed
 * with free()- a special function is provided in this library for freeing
 * dynamic strings.
 *
 * The primary dynamic string function is:
 *
 * char *vsncpy(char *d, int off, char *s, int len);
 *                              Copy a block of characters at address 's' of
 *                      length 'len' onto the dynamic string 'd' at
 *                      offset 'off'.  The dynamic string is expanded
 *                      to handle any values of 'len' and 'off' which
 *                      might be given.  If 'off' is greater than the
 *                      length of the string, SPACEs are placed in the
 *                      gap.  If 'd' is NULL, a string is created.  If
 *                      'len' is 0, no copying or string expansion
 *                      occurs.
 *
 * Three important macros are provided for helping with vsncpy():
 *
 * sc("Hello")   Gives -->  "Hello",sizeof("Hello")-1
 * sz(s)         Gives -->  s,strlen(s)
 * sv(d)         Gives -->  d,sLEN(d)
 *
 * These are used to build arguments for vsncpy().  Many functions
 * can be created with combinations of sc/sz/sv with vsncpy:
 *
 *    s=vsncpy(NULL,0,NULL,0);            Create an empty dynamic string
 *
 *    s=vsncpy(NULL,0,sc("Hello")); Create a dynamic string initialized
 *                            with "Hello"
 *
 *    d=vsncpy(NULL,0,sv(s));       Duplicate a dynamic string
 *
 *    d=vsncpy(NULL,0,sz(s));       Convert a C string into a dynamic
 *                                      string.
 *
 *    d=vsncpy(sv(d),sv(s));        Append dynamic string s onto d.
 *
 *    d=vsncpy(sv(d),sc(".c"));           Append a ".c" extension to d.
 *
 *
 * These lesser functions are also provided:
 *
 * void vsrm(char *s);        Free a string.  Do nothing if 's' is NULL.
 *
 * int sLEN(char *s);         Return the length of the string 's'.  If 's'
 *                      is NULL, return 0.
 *
 * char *vstrunc(char *d,int len);
 *                      Set the length of a string.  Expand the string
 *                      with blanks if necessary.
 *
 * char *vsensure(char *d,int len);
 *                      Expand the malloc block for the string if
 *                      necessary so that a string of 'len' chars can
 *                      fit in it.
 *
 * sLen(s)=10;                Set the length indicator of the string to 10.
 *
 * char *vsins(char *d,int off,int len);
 *                      Insert a gap into a string.
 *
 * char *vsdel(char *d,int off,int len);
 *                      Delete characters from a string.
 *
 * Other function are provided as well.  Look through the rest of the header
 * file.  The header file is kind of weird looking because it is intended to
 * handle dynamic arrays of any type with only a few changes.
