I don't know, I was actually just thinking about contacting the author
about this. It held great potential. The one problem I saw was that it

code/license from the author.

I haven't looked at this project in a while so it may have changed, but
these limitations kept me from perusing this program. I have (and have
seen) too many cases of people purchasing software and when they had to
change newtons it no longer worked. And of course the developer was no

he has obviously spent a great deal of time developing. Which is a real
