There is no license. Use it and if something explodes, it is on you. It 
shouldn't though, but if it does... it is on you.

docs - all documentation on the code and patricia trie classes (not the frequency stuff)
src - the source for the pat trie and example program

If you set the DEBUG constant (or macro) then the iostream class will be included. It is
best not to use this library because it makes porting difficult. The class works and the 
print function is fairly useless unless you are debugging, so even though the class comes
with DEBUG set, it is probably best to comment the DEBUG macro out so that it does not
cause trouble with other compilers.

If you compile with Bloodshed Dev C++ it does not like any of the DEBUG or iostream stuff.
If you can it, then the rest should work.

Compiled Successfully { MS Visual Studio v6.0 }
