Dear Shailesh,

you are right: the online demo assumes that, for a recurrence of order
k, the initial conditions are given for x(0), ..., x(k-1).
We are working at a revision of our system (that currently is, remember,
only a research prototype) that will allow to specify any set of
initial conditions and special cases.
We will also extend the online demo so as to make this facilities
available through the web.
