How to compile?
I am on Ubuntu 10.4.
Please list the commands needed.

Also what does the example command line look like to process the example .pto files?

For "j" explanation see:

Hi everybody,

I undusted the code I started few years ago and finally completed a
working prototype:

(it is here temporarily until sourceforge gives us shell access again).

If you download it and compile it, you will find that it creates a
program called "testparser". It uses one command line option, the name
of a PTO file. It will convert this PTO file to an equivalent .TXT
panotools script.

THe idea of this parser is old: if we have a single parser (as a
library) we can then have multiple tools reading (and perhaps
generating) these files.

One of the goals is to replace (or at least create an alternative
execution path) the parser in libpano, so we can more easily upgrade it
when we need new options/variables. This will probably help in the
creation of more portable lens parameters.
