Fasthenry program does much more than I originally thought

Original poster: "rob by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <rob-at-pythonemproject-dot-com>

I've been playing with the fasthenry program today, and I had no idea
that you could do so much with it.

It will model inductors above a ground plane, model coupled inductors,
and generate impedance matrices.  Connections can be made to the ground

In fact, the Unix version has a program that converts fasthenry output
into several types of Spice models.  There is also a provision to
generate current info for Matlab viewing.  And there is a program which
converts the input file into a Postscript picture.

Here's the rub:  I'm modeling a coil with 8000 segments (50Mb of
memory).  You need a computer program to generate the input file.  This
weekend I will try hacking a Python program that might work for
coilers.  It might take a couple of weeks to do this, but I'll try.  I
already have the code for simple cylindrical coils.  I have compiled it
for Windows also with the MingW compiler.  If anyone wants it, email me.
