Hi Ralf,

Sorry about the top posting... I blame gmail.

I've been working on the code and posting to gitorious.  I don't mind
adding copyright headers (as long as it's the "share your work" kind).
 I'd be willing to add more command line options.  So far I've only
added what I need to get my work done.

I hear Perl is a nice language, but I'm many times over more fluent in
C.  I'm a fish out of water in Perl so I'll have to stick to C, but
just out of curiosity, why is non-compiled language preferable?

If you don't mind, point me to a reasonable copyright header and I'll
commit them to my source.
