I don't see anywhere in the mfatkc source about strcpy_s, but I'll keep looking, and you certainly know better than me about MSVC

If you use strcpy_s to copy eleven characters into a ten-character buffer, that is an error on your part; strcpy_s cannot correct your mistake, but it can detect your error and inform you by invoking the invalid parameter handler.
strcpy_s has a different definition, requiring a third size argument; it's just meant to be a "catch stupid programmer error" thing. Since the code does a check for a long line anyways, the extra functionality is unnecessary.

Oh, that's just a while(1), that warning can be ignored. (Perhaps deleting the 1 and leaving the conditional blank will work?) Edit: Actually, in further looking, I actually have no clue why that loop is there at all. If the func finds a too-long line, then it reads in the characters until a control character then breaks? Wtf?

PS I forgot to mention above, but the help message was moved from no-args to the -h arg.
PPS Here's a slightly larger .ini file:
# Polite is the same as the -polite option. If it's 1, each iteration is
# polite. If it's (for example) 12, then every 12th iteration is polite. Thus
# the higher the number, the less polite the program is. Set to 0 to turn off
# completely. Polite!=0 will incur a slight performance drop, but the screen 
# should be more responsive. Trade responsiveness for performance. (Note:
# polite=0 is known to cause CUDALucas to use some extra CPU time; Polite=64 or
# higher is a good compromise.)
flash, could you add this to your copy before you bundle the executable?

The attached archive contains the modified parse.c and CUDALucas.ini.
