It is to demonstrate the algorithm. There is really nothing to it, so
preprocess it with 'gcc -E' and you will see that most of it is _DEBUG_
preprocessor directives. It has a sweep over triplets across the buffer,
and in that there are three cases that are a result of a remainder count.
Most of it is verbosity. I also made sure I perform one operation at a
time and gave verbose comments. It would be hard to follow had I not
been verbose.

Dave pointed out that y indices used for sweeping "i" and "j", etc, could
have been more descriptive, adn he is right.

The code can be made more compact, but not much more.

Yes sure, yes sir! Will shoot for once a month.
