Of course ;-)) If so I'll don't look after an official support. I'm afraid I'm
too new on X to do it : I just bought an X book and a Tcl/Tk book I still have
to read. Tcl/Tk would be my choice, but ascp is very advanced so I'd perhaps
give a hand on it ?

I can have a look, but I'm not so good looking at other's huge C code.
Ascp looks very good, but I have some troubles compiling it with my gtk+libs. I
never had it work like the screenshots on the page. I only tried it by an old
rpm I found.
I also miss a good IDE on my 4 weeks new linux : what do you use ?
