I tried to run this on wine, and the executables run.  However no luck 
with the editor, seems to hate the input.

Also no files would open.

Any possibility of the sources to build a linux version, or possibly one 
that would run on debian / ubuntu (my own choice)?

My nas is all at the base naming scheme compatible with unix, not 
windows, with attendant case insensitivity issues.

The tool sounds great, will have to see if it will work with any of my 
windows 10 systems which access the NAS.
