Hi Reimar,

I can try. But you must know that C is not my cup of tee, even if I do
understand many of the base concepts of programming. My bigger
difficulty with C is its syntax, I find it very confusing, certainly
because I never get the time to seriously look at it. Otherwise, I have
basic skills on Motorola assembler (even on dsp56k, a very amazing
baby), basic and bash.

I am also willing to learn the C, but as I said, I never was able to
find enough time to seriously do that. If it is a matter of
"simple" C programming, I can give it a try, but I cannot promise

So, how do you want to process? We can do that on this list or you can
contact me directly.
