I'll now go the hard way and create flyerf from the scratch. Today I I
read the Experts Guide very attentiv but I didn't found any
startingpoint. So I read the source code from doc and docf but the are
also very complex.

Are there any realy simple layouts available for download where I can
learning from?

Yes, because I need the right ones. I'm very interested to learning
the lout syntax because of the programm is very usefull for me and I
have a lot ideas for nice layouts. :-)
