Yes some of the code is not in there. I was giving a hint from a federal
government employee that some US export control laws might have an
impact on the distribution of certain codes that were planned to be part
I did a search and http://www.access.gpo.gov/bis/ear/txt/ccl4.txt seems
to imply that certain aspects of ffpis would fit under the category of
[[[4D001 "Software" specially designed or
modified for the "development", "production"
or "use" of equipment or "software" controlled
by 4A001 to 4A004, or 4D (except 4D980,
4D993 or 4D994), and other specified software,
see List of Items Controlled.
CC applies to "software"
controlled by 4A003 for
CC stands for Crime Control.

I'll see what I can do, but in order to continue I may need to contact
the Commerce Department or some other federal agency and apply for a
waiver... And I'm not a lawyer, nor do I have the resources to get one
at this time.
What is your nationality and place of current residence?
If you can show that you are a citizen of the United States of America,
and that where I'd be sending some information resides within the States
or it's territories I might be able to send you some more code.
You can also try contacting the nist.
I am sorry for the inconvenience.
