Read the README, it is as close to documentation as your likely to get 
:-) and keep in mind that I'm a BSDite. I did compile it on an Ubuntu 
system and it seems to work. Keep in mind that the GNU getopt function 
does not behave in a "POSIX friendly" manner by default; if you are 
trying to pass a co-ordinate with a negative value, you will need to 
either use the -- flag or set the POSIXLY_CORRECT env. variable. See
