Usage: simttm [Options] tacfile n k [outputfile] 
 -h, --help
     Display usage information on standard output and exit.
 -v, --version
     Display version and compile information on standard output and exit.
 -d[n], --debug[=n], --verbose[=n]
     Set the level (n) of debugging messages and listings.
 -q, --quiet
     Suppress displaying normal results on standard output.
 -s, --silent
     Suppress displaying anything except errors.
If file name for output is not given, then the TAC file is modified.
The units of k must correspond the time units of the TAC.
For accurate results, input TAC should have very short sample intervals.
Frame durations are not used, even if available in the TAC file.
