Yet another version of a TOPS-20 SQ and USQ is now available, based on
the "portable" C version, for ANONYMOUS FTP from MICRO:
here on SIMTEL20.  These programs are meant to be compiled with the
"MIT C" compiler.  However, ready-to-run executables are available in
the same directory.  Note: USQ is a special version, not to be
confused with the more generic and significantly faster version of USQ
by GZ@MC in MICRO:.  Please rename this special version
of USQ to LUSQ (for Large file USQ) if you choose to install it on our

SQ differs from Bill Westfield's recently announced version in the
handling of input and output filenames and input and output padding.
This version also writes output files with the ITS Binary header, a
known sore point subject to change.

USQ is different from GZ's USQ in that it will handle any arbitrarily
large file that SQ can produce; it assumes the original file was an
ASCII text file; it is more than three times slower.  It also has the
TYPESQ functionality by the use of the -count option for previewing
without actually unsqueezing.

Bug reports to me, please.
