I think the program is "conscience-ware" [ie pay up if you use it
to encourage the author to add features and refinements]. However,
it is not a crippled version. I have no connection with the author,
Simon Dobson. He can be contacted at sd at inf.rl.ac.uk for "bug reports,
comments, wish lists and flames."
