These files (v6_*.cxx) are the C++ port of the correponding C file (*.c). Since they have the same content (except for translating from K&R C to C++), it is appropriate that they have their history ported (this was done by manipulating the repository directly).

Unfortunately we forgot to remove the CVS tag from these files when we copied them. I removed the tags on Thursday, so all should be back to normal!

Let me elaborate a bit on this, 'cause I found it confusing when I encountered it last week. These files didn't appear in my copy when I used CVS checkout to get version v4-04-02 intitially (soon after it was tagged), or updated to v4-04-02b (or if they did come, something deleted them before attempting to build them). But when I recently updated to v4-04-02f they appeared and caused problems. The extra confusing part is that they seem to have CVS histories that predate v4-04-02 and so I don't understand why they weren't a problem from the start. Was this a result of deletion by some script/Makefile, a suppression in CVS, or a re-structuring of CVS behind the scene?
