7The two big files, NormalizationTest.txt (2.1 MB) and Unihan.txt
8(26.7 MB) were not included due to space considerations. Also NOT

15To be 8.3-friendly, the lib/unicore/PropertyValueAliases.txt was
16renamed to be lib/unicore/PropValueAliases.txt, since otherwise
17it would have conflicted with lib/unicore/PropertyAliases.txt.

21The *.pl files are generated from the *.txt files by the mktables script,
22more recently done during the Perl build process, but if you want to try
23the old manual way:

24
25 cd lib/unicore
26 cp .../UnicodeOriginal/*.txt .
27 rm NormalizationTest.txt Unihan.txt Derived*.txt
e1aef32f 28 p4 edit Properties *.pl */*.pl

29 perl ./mktables
30 p4 revert -a
31 cd ../..
32 perl Porting/manicheck

34You need to update version by hand
35
36 p4 edit version

39If any new (or deleted, unlikely but not impossible) *.pl files are indicated:
40
41 cd lib/unicore
42 p4 add ...
43 p4 delete ...
44 cd ../...
45 p4 edit MANIFEST
46 ...

48And finally:
