Ok. In that case changing the README would be a good idea in order to

Ok. I see the examples are in the Debian package

I see. You mean use
BTW, the high level API example in convolve uses
even though the documentation refers to
Which of these should be used? Actually, it might be an idea to state
explicitly in 12.3-12.6 which header files should be use. Possibly
