comfigure eases the task of './configure'ing many packages. It remembers the 'configure' options for each package, and uses them automatically if called without options. comfigure automatically recognizes the package name and version from the directory from which it was called. If the stored version is not equal to the current one, an MD5 digest sum is calculated over the output of './configure --help' to determine if the available options have changed. In such a case, the user will be asked what shall be done.

Release Notes: An error that occurred with Perl 5.8.0 was fixed.
Release Notes: This release has more verbose output, a new 'exec' command for specifying an alternate ./configure, and uses an open pipe for reading the ./configure output.
Release Notes: Addition of the 'add' command, and renaming the 'remove' command to 'forget'.
Release Notes: This release has improved directory name parsing (there are less restrictions to program names). When parsing fails, the directory name is offered as a default. 'interactive' mode is now even more interactive.
Release Notes: All planned features have been fully implemented. This will be labeled '1.0' if no bugs are found.
