I've just done the first cvs commit on this.

Simply, go into src/jmlib, and type "make p"
The code is actually C, but pulls in a C++ header for types. I think
I'll fix this soon, but in the meantime, it requries C++ :-/

I've not yet decided how I'm going to use this, but obviously it can
replace huge swathes of code in patt.cpp in jmdlx, and aajm can now
probably take advantage of it.

Braodly speaking:

struct groups_t g;
struct styles_t s;
FILE *f = fopen("","r");
ParsePatterns(f, &g, &s);

This can be used for whatever you want, including [possibly] a new
file that contains all styles you want to make available through a
styles menu [eg normal, windmill, mills].

The FreeGroups and FreeStyles functions are currently rather rudely
non-existant. I'll get round to it :-)
