Running BOINC uppercase Demo Standalone

Running the BOINC uppercase demo standalone requires a few things.
For the first requirement I just copied upper_case.C to in.
$ cp upper_case.C in
Then init_data.xml may be created using touch.
$ touch init_data.xml
Finally, I just set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable when I run upper_case.
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./upper_case
At this point the upper_case client should run standalone and display a graphics window. The window should display a sphere and cylinder configuration that bounces around as the application runs.

If a logo.jpg file exists in the current directory, it will be displayed as a texture at the back of the area where the "ball" bounces. I just copied the boinc logo file over. Also, if you copy (or link) the Helvetica.txf from the BOINC distribution to the uppercase directory some statistics will be displayed as the application runs.
