Automatic OSS License Extraction recursively scans a list of files and directories for program files, and attempts to automatically extract license and copyright information from them. Copyright statements are linked with their accompanying licenses, and each license is compared with licenses from the other files to eliminate duplicates. The output is a comprehensive list, containing a single copy of each unique license and its associated copyright holders. Currently supports scanning C (.c and .h), Sh scripts (.sh), Perl (.pl), and Python (.py) files.

Release Notes: This release can combine multiple copyright owners' names spread out over multiple lines into a single line. It can also expand the names of files searched. The complete list of files searched is now: *.c, *.cc, *.h, *.hh, *.sh, *.php, *.pl, *.py, *.tcl, COPYING, and LICENSE.
Release Notes: Files named "LICENSE" are now included when scanning source trees. A few minor and subtle bugs were fixed in the regular expressions, which should result in less cruft in the output.
