besea is not self containied. it uses escript via the unix #! script 
hack(*). so you need a unix system with an installed escript. if this 
works on windows i will try to get escript into CEAN.


(*) tmi: if the first 4 charactes of a file are #! / or (on most 
systems) the first 3 charactes are #!/, then the kernel will try to use 
that file as an interpreter for the file. the kernel uses 32 characters 
starting from /, or (on most systems) all characters until end of line.

    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
