Hello

I went to the SourceForge.net website to download the software to create my Google site map. However there are 10 files in the folder that I downloaded from OpenSource and I can't seem to open the AUTHORS, COPYING, README, OR PKG-INFO. I opened a file named example-config and it looks kinda like this and I do not know what to do know. Do I use this to make my site map and just insert my information or is there a way to open the other files? I am trying to make my site map so I can get indexed but it seems I'm having a hard time. :

THIS IS WHAT THE EXAMPLE_CONFIG FILE LOOKS LIKE IS THIS WHAT I USE TO MAKE MY SITE MAP? I AM SO CONFUSED!
--------------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
- <!-- sitemap_gen.py example configuration script

This file specifies a set of sample input parameters for the
sitemap_gen.py client.

You should copy this file into "config.xml" and modify it for
your server.

The "site" node describes your basic web site.

how much diagnostic output the script gives
suppress_search_engine_notify="1"

- <!-- ********************************************************
