Not that I know of. Probably mixed up the tarball with one of the dev
dir. I rebuild the package with a downloaded version.

I hope it's better now.

The program is developed and used with debian.

To write a proper documentation is still somewhere on the todo list :(
This very basic man page was added for the debian package. It will be
added to the next upstream version.

The command line tool is not part of this package and is therefore not

longer time scale it is planned to split the program into a library, a
command line tool and a GUI as supposed previously:

The sourcefiles are marked as supposed here:
Nevertheless I seems that the template I borrwed from somewhere was not
complete also something I will take care off in the next upstream release.

I included the paragraphs.
