I'm not sure what the problem here is.	The current program is in Perl,
which is widely used on UNIX boxes.  It's a stand alone program which
is called by a WWW front end.  I've made it available to people who've
asked for it.  I don't have any plans to make the current version run
from the command line, although it wouldn't be too difficult, since the
web front end is a) easy to use, and b) easy to distribute.

This is the most common request, and will definitely be added.	As to
describing specifically what the APSW is, you'll have to do that in
the general description.  Also, the new version gets away from things
like W-2xHKP/3-FT and has a more human-readable output although the
"open" format will remain the same except for that.

The new version will have the option for something like the battlecards.
It won't be a nice, graphical reproduction because I understand software
to do that may already be in the works, but it will probably follow a
similar format.
