The GutRead utility will read texts from the Gutenberg Project and remove all the
hours of editing in your word processor. It will also produce the text in XML format.
The gutread.exe utility takes the labour out of processing texts from the Gutenberg
http://www.gutenberg.org/. The utility is intended to be small and fast.
