Hi, I'm a complete newbie to this library, and was *really* struggling to get the tutorial to work for me because I kept getting the "Library Not Initialized" error but couldn't understand why. I discovered - after much frustration and searching - that because I'm statically linking the library, I need to add "ssh_init()" to the start of my program (and "ssh_finalize()" at the end). The tutorial assumes a dynamic build. I humbly recommend, from my newbie perspective, that it might be good to mention this in Chapter 1 of the tutorial ("if you are using a static library build of sshlib, then you must add these functions" etc) Thanks!
