Hey Alex....

Long time not heard anything.

Wishes for stderr 110,162 Views / 970 Replies  
Rick

What I would like to see in the stderr is:
1. Version information
2. Platform
3. Optimizations
4. The name of the Auhors / Compilers


The Stderr can be checked for each result.

You should also add some version information.
