            It is ok in v. 2.0.7.

            electronic configuration
            I recently fired up gperiodic to look at the electronic configuration
            of Zinc and found it to be wrong. By the way.. I am using debian
            stable, so I have gperiodic 1.3.3

            Instead of [Ar]3d10 4s2, it had [Ar]3d1 4s2

            After clicking around I noticed other elements had incorrect electronic
            configurations. I checked them against 'Web of Elements Periodic
            which I believe to be a correct source.

            I thought to myself... well, it is open source so I could fix it
            myself... so I downloaded the source and looked at it, but I have no
            idea how to fix it. I saw that the information for the elements was
            in src/table_data.c, but the text had superscripts, which I'm not
            familiar with in regular ASCII text files.
            'file table_date.c' indicates that the code is ISO-8859 format.
            I have no experience with this and have no idea to fix it.

            Any hints?

            I'm not at all an experienced linux hacker/programmer, but I am
            interested in perhaps learning more and improving the quality of
            gperiodic since I think it is an excellent program, but contains
            incorrect information (at least in version 1.3.3.)
