            could you possibly give me the link where I can download this FVS version. I downloaded the version from but when I installed it there where not any matching programs. There where only some demo programs whitch seemed not to work properly.

            Thank you for your coding of the fvs. I saw that you have written the
            matching part, however in version 0.06 is fails to compile if I just do
            configure and make. Since I am interested in the matching of fingerprints, I
            would like to ask if you can give me a suggestion how to test it.

            Best regards,

            Hi all & specially Shivang Patel
            I coded the whole Week-end and made a first release of FVS. For comments and Bug reports about FVS direct them to me, FVS2 is the part where Shivang Patel is much more involved.
            The CVS downloadable version includes a small help but has still to be extended.
