Gxformer into CVS

Atlast, i checked in the sources of gxformer into CVS. Created the and necessary scripts. I took the script code from PyGtk to create the gxformer executable. Got to put the command line help feature and Release gxformer by today :)

FORK is my Hero

I finished the GUI part of the Transformer and now, i got a new problem. The UI started to Hang :(
I didnt know what to do. I started using Threads in Python, Gtk, Glib, Gobject. But nothing helped me. I was struggling with this for a Day. Atlast, Damu asked me to use FORK.
Voila, It worked well with FORK. Also, got a tip from Nirmal, and he asked to call gtk_main_iteration ().
It also helped me to prevent UI Hangs and it works fine now.

I checked the code into CVS. Now trying my hands with the Makefile and will make it ready soon.
Also, doing final touches :)

Final Touch

Am not happy with the Bottom half of the GUI.
The convert button and progress bar. Everything is over, except to call the shared library. Hope to finish it today :)
