Should you wish to delve into the depths of the source code - I wish you the best of luck. This should not be construed in any manner as an example of how to right good code.

However, if you dare to go into this code and find something useful to use for your own project, I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to do so, under the terms of the license below - which basically says please acknowledge me in some small way so I can know I helped make you rich and famous.
