ouch -- that can result in ugly code -- but if you've cleaned it up and 
it works, then what the heck!

I don't think so -- maybe a bit for their web app.

I'd like to see it.

I've now written a Python version of the JavaScript code someone posted 
a link to here. I want to add a few tests to it, and I may wrap your C 
code also -- we'll see how much energy I have!

I'm also looking for "know" values that I can use for testing. How does 
one know if it's working right?
