Remove All CVS Id Strings Possible Using a Script

Script does what is expected and tries to do it as
smartly as possible.

+ remove occurrences of two blank comment lines

next to each other after Id string line removed.

+ remove entire comment blocks which only exited to

contain CVS Ids

+ If the processing left a blank line at the top of

a file, it was removed.

8untar.c contains two procedures for extracting files from a UNIX
9tar file:
10
11    int Untar_FromMemory(unsigned char *tar_buf, unsigned long size);
12    int Untar_FromFile(char *tar_name);
13
14Untar_FromMemory(...) takes its input from a chunk of allocated memory.
15This is particularly useful when the tar is stored in Flash memory or
16comes from the FTP daemon by way of a hook.
17
18Untar_FromFile(...) is identical except the source is from an existing
19file.  The fully qualified filename is passed through char *tar_name.
