   thethepc: find duplicate words in a file

   thethepc(input: in, output: out)

   input:  text of a paper in which one might have put a
      a word in duplicate, as these two lines demonstrate!
   output: messages to the user, the program name and version number,
      followed by a list of the duplicate words (if any).

   The program searches through the input stream for duplicate tokens and shows
   them on the output.  A token is separtated from other tokens by spaces or
   carriage returns.  The purpose of the program is to find duplicate words
   in a paper.  For this reason, the program's normal mode is to ignore
   words with special characters (anything other than a-zA-Z).  This can be
   altered by changing constants (see technical notes below).

   This line contains a duplicate word word that should be picked up.

   Does not handle arbitrarily long lines.

technical notes
   There are two boolean constants that may be set to adjust how the program
   works:  onlycharacters and caseindependent.  See the comments on their
   definitions The maximum buffer length is given by constant maxstring.

   Note: the name of this program is thethepc because there is a (better) c
   version, and I don't want to get them mixed up.
