This source code does need some modification, otherwise an error will be reported. Please modify line 555 of src / easyedit-1.5.2 / ee.c in your clone directory to modify it to: "For (counter = 1; counter <24; counter ++)" Then execute make and make install in this directory and you can use it.

Give it a shot and see what think:
