Thanks for sharing the great idea. that looks nice though,
unfortunately I have no idea to play with it. particularly where
gFileList.sh, dpFunctions.sh, rmif, mkconfigFile.sh and sax2 is came
from. there are no information about them on the blog.
for the security reason, usually there are no current path in $PATH.
so running mkXML.sh is also failed. I have fop on /usr/bin from the
Fedora package though, mksampler.sh has the hardcoding path for
formatter. it can be improved IMHO.
