Technical documentation

Some technical documentation technical.pdf concerning the simulator have been written and are released with each version of Qucs as a ready-to-read postscript document and in its source code form as well. The descriptions have been done besides programming the simulator itself and approach the problems in a pragmatically way. The documentation is maintained as a latex document. Using the program 'latex2html' it is possible to read it online. These pages are going to be updated with each new release of Qucs.
