Data conversion

Minor update on the ELM327 OBD scan tool:

A GUI has been added that is auto used when a graphical environment is available, otherwise the program will fall back to console usage. GUI does not contain any usefull controls yet. Users can also force console interface by adding the application launch parameter “-c”. I’ve scanned some of the more convenient PID codes on the Vectra and here and there I’ve also implemented data conversion to make it easy readable. Here is some console output:

The program also comes with auto auto incremented version numbers, this is made through Ant Build tasks. The program version can be checked in a About form.
