Thanks. I have added a statically linked

executable file for download.

It should execute

on x86 Linux computers. Right now I have only

one old Linux computer available. I'll test on

more recent Linux computers later on.

Unusual not to offer code
It's interesting to see a SF project which offers an algorithm, but makes code or executables available only upon payment of some fee. Do we have any independent verification that this actually works? Sorry, but it sounds like a scam to me. I didn't check the profile for the user, but perhaps he/she is based in Nigeria?

Caveat emptor!
