I just tried it on stdpass.ps and evince 2.28.1 (on Ubuntu) didn't
crash. With which .ps/.fpd file did you experience the problem and
which version of evince are you using ?

It's indeed a bit untidy right now. examples/ would be a better
name, though. I've moved them.

gui.html is only the part of the manual that introduces concepts
by means of their visualization and that how to do things via the
GUI. It is complemented by the README, which describes what's
underneath the GUI. So the manual is really both together.

The idea is that gui.html gives a quick introduction that allows
people to experiment a bit and familiarize themselves with the
GUI. Then one should go through the README to clarify the more
technical details. It's not necessary to understand the fped
language, but it helps to know what this language can express.
