    Since PHPCrawl version 0.7, a visual HTML-testinterface comes along
				with the package.
				It was build to test the crawler, but since the number of settings and methods is growing,
				the inteface also may be useful to find the right class-setup for your needs
				or just to play around with the different settings.
    <br><br>
    You'll find the test-interface in the directory "test_interface" of the package (file "index.php").<br>
				In there you also find a tiny configuration-file called "phpcrawl_testinterface.conf.php".<br>
    <br>
    <b>
    Before using the test-inerface the first time, you have to choose a username and password for the login
    (http-auth) and put it into the mentioned configuration-file (variables $cfg_authUsername and $cfg_authPassword).
    </b>
    <br>
    <br>
				The interface allows you to quickly setup the crawler-class, choose the output and start the
				crawling-process with these settings.<br>
				By clicking the littel info-icons beside
				the options you get directly to the explanations of the corresponding class-methods
				in the classreference.<br>
				Its also possible to save and load different setups.
    <br>
    <br>
    Please note that the output will be done in a browser-window, so your browser may get problems
				if you let the crawler return information about thousands of found pages and files.
