I emailed Mel directly and expressed interest in the following books:
· The M4 Marco Processor
· SED - A Non-Interactive Text Editor
· Awk - A pattern Scanning and Processing Language
· Yacc: Yet Another Compiler-Compiler
· RATFOR - A Preprocessor for a Rational Fortran
Here's my comment as to why I'm interested in the aforementioned titles.

The only title that I'd *really* /like/ to get my hands on is "The M4
Macro Processor". (See aforementioned unhealthy interest in M4.)
I'm quite happy to share with the community. I just want to save the
materials from the bin if nobody else claims them.
Note: I've not heard anything back from Mel yet.
