I have two questions:

1) I would like to convert  coordinates from UK National Grid to lat/long. 
>From the proj manual and ordinance survey information, I calculate the input 
projection definition to be:

+proj=tmerc +lat_0=49n +lon_0=2w +k=0.9996012717 +ellps=airy +a=677563.396 

How would I specify that I want the output coordinates to be in lat/long using 
proj on the command line.?

2) Is there a simple 'hello world' c++ example that demonstrates the libproj 
programmatic interface, as I need to do the above process programmatically.

I am woking on suse linux 9.0

Many Thanks
