For package maintainers and hackage trustees

Readme for explore-


  - It is only a very early hack ^__^"!!
  - Line occlusion causes matches to fail.
  - Supports only 32-bit PNGs (with an alpha/transparency channel).
  - No automatic recognition whatsoever of figures/plots given
    a full page. Lots of happy moments with Gimp and Inkscape!!


  - The example plots provided with this package are from:

      Incorporating Environmental factors in
      Modelling Malaria Transmission in under five
      children in Rural Burkina Faso

      Inaugural Dissertation to attain the degree of
      Doctor Scientiarum humanarum (Dr. Sc. Hum.)

      At the Medical Faculty of Ruprecht-Karls-University

      submitted by Yazoumé Yé
