DESCRIPTION

  MCC-Install is an installer script for MUI Custom Classes that is
  highly modular to be re-usable for other installer scripts.

  MCC-Install features:

  - Follows the V43 Installer Style Guide
  - Correctly supports the different user levels
  - Install new/update mode
  - Uninstallation
  - Supports Installers prior to V43
  - Highly automated
  - Very flexible
  - Very intelligent (for an installer-script ;-)
  - It uses WrapGuide (if present) for the AmigaGuide documentation
    if running under a pre V39 system.
  - Autodetects the CPU/FPU
  - Autodetects the OS version
  - Autodetects the MUI version
  - Autodetects existing files within the distribution archive
  - Installs the optimal 68010-68060 binary if available
  - Supports the following document formats:
    ASCII, AmigaGuide, HTML
  - It supports the following languages:
    English, German, French, Danish, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Polish,
    Finnish, Greek, Czech, Russian
  - Supports source code installation for the following programming
    languages:
    C, Assembler, Amiga-E, Modula II, Oberon, ARexx, Cluster,
    Blitz Basic 2
  - It can be re-used by (hopefully) all other MUI custom classes since
    the authors of custom classes need to change only a few things:
    * The #copyright variable
    * The #min_os_version and #min_os_revision variables
    * The #min_mui_version and #min_mui_revision variables
    * The #language_mcc and #language_mcp variables
    * The P_CustomExists, P_CustomInstall and P_CustomUninstall
      procedures
    * The 'APPNAME' tooltype within the MCC-Install icon

  - Added support for HTML documentation
  - Added support for ARexx, Cluster, Blitz Basic 2
