You can get more information about cdctl on the cdctl project page on sourceforge.  Please send comments to thalakan@users.sourceforge.net.

We could also use translators to translate the documentation and output messages into various languages; it's really simple, and only takes a few minutes of your time.  It's a nice way to give back to cdctl if you find it useful.
