Everything I've got is public and should be 100% fine.

There you go:


It's got files, logs, and a brief explanation of the lib.

Let me know when you've fixed a file and I'll replace it. I've
downloaded all 14,000 or so DWG files Autodesk has public in their FTP
site. (I'm testing batch conversion in our own app). I'll convert them
to R14 and then test a few at a time. I'll put a maximum of 10 on the
website at once, unless you want more or have more people working on it
etc. There's no real space limit on our website so it's cool.

I'm afraid it still gives errors. 

3 questions:

1) Is there any way to directly link to your script at your site so
people can download it to test it from that same page?

2) Can you just stick a copyright header in that script to say what
license you're putting it under?

3) is std out any good to you or is it just std error you're after? I've
put both on the site for now.
