  1. Daniel,


    Maybe you can help me – for Eppstein’s, what would be a format of the input file, I tried several of them and I am always getting this [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor – and what would be a correct form of a command line if I am to use an input file (I don’t know if I am doing it right)

    Thank you
