Description

FrePPLe is an open source production planning and scheduling application.

This program reads XML input data, and also embeds a Python interpeter to execute instructions in the Python language.

The input data can be provided in the following ways:
 - Passing one or more XML files.
 - Passing one or more directories as arguments.
   The program will process all files with the extension '.xml' found
   in the directories in alphabetical order.
 - Passing one or more Python files with the extension '.py'.
   The Python commands are executed in the embedded interpreter.
 - When passing no file or directory arguments, input will be read
   from the standard input. XML data can be redirected or piped to the
   application.
