Animator Session Wrapper

Description

Animator Session wrapper is a tool which makes using animator session file easier. Use of Animator Session Wrapper is to take benefit of re-usability of Animator session files. Basically Animator session file is list of commands that can be run in Animator command prompt in order to fulfill a particular evaluation task. A simple session file saved from animator contains a lot of information to set up the Animator environment for next time use. This information, although useful for setting up the Animator, has no use for user, who wants to take the same session file for similar task on another set of simulation results. 
To make the re-usability easier Animator Session Wrapper:
    1. Allows user to have a summary of the session file, by showing only the lines that is required to be changed, for the next time use. 
    2. Also it gives an easier way of modifying and running the session file, without touching the content of the original session file
    3. Once loaded session file can be used multiple times in one directory location and/or  can be run in different locations sequentially.
    4. And to make things even better every loaded session file can be saved in binary format, as .sesb file for a quick reloading of your previously done modifications.
This tool is still in development phase and still a lot of updates are to come with upcoming versions. I will finish the first full functioning release in version release 1.0
