Thanks for the info and the updated program, it is very appreciated
and help a lot on our project.
I will take a look at it.

Regarding svn commit, I think not necessary yet. Because I do not know
whether I will add a lot of features on that yet. For the moment I
think I will just use it as it is and if I really add some features, I
will just sent you the complete change or svn diff (if you prefer)
