```very nice and fast program thanks!

looks like this will be a useful feature to add (especially if the examined sequence |s| doesn't start with the right offset):

s[n]=s1[n+k1]+s2[n+k2]
where k1,k2 are small, possibly negative (may need to drop first terms of |s|).

btw, does seeker.c have a license?
