+# $Id$
+In the directory "update_tools", there are a set of tools to aid in
+making the application source changes necessary to address some
+of the changes in the RTEMS API between release 3.1.0 and 3.2.0.
+The primary change addressed by these tools is the addition of
+"rtems_" or "RTEMS_" as a prefix on EVERY user visible RTEMS
+provided constant and routine. The primary factor in the decision
+to make such a sweeping change was conflicts between the
+the RTEMS and POSIX API's.
+WARNING: These tools modify the files IN PLACE!!! Backup your
+ source before using these tools.
