Project going closed-source/ freeware.

hi,
some time ago, I thought that I could get the community's response.

However, I recevied:

1) SNIDE REMARKS for NO REASON,
2) PERSONAL ATTACKS,
3) NASTY COMMENTS,
4) NONSENSE,
5) F**** AND OTHER BAD WORDS

THIS IS AN OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU CAN SEE THE SOURCE CODE BEHIND THE PROGRAM AND FIX IT.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIX IT, YOU CAN KINDLY POST A MESSAGE ON SOURCEFORGE AND I WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND WHEN I HAVE TIME, I WILL FIX IT.... read more

May take a while.

hi,
I am new to using SourceForge CVS. I don't know how to check-in files into the CVS. It may take a while before the source codes and everything else are checked-in to SourceForge CVS.

If you need a build now, please send an email to me.

thanks.

Compilation Notes

Please see compilation notes for details how to compile this project.

Note: This is not your average open-source project, and hence, it is not expected that you can compile the project. it requires quite a number of third-party libraries, which are not open-source.
