PRO-82 programming utility

I came into an analog PRO-82 scanner and I spent some time today developing a utility to program it, and perhaps other scanners which I understand have identical programming interfaces, like the PRO-64, PRO-76, PRO-79, PRO-89, PRO-2016, PRO-2017 and PRO-2041. You can find it here. It provides a command-line interface that programs the radio with a list of channels from a .csv file you supply. It does not have a graphical interface.

ProLink, originally by glyff and later maintained by antistatic, is an existing free tool for Windows. I would have used it, but I didn't have a Windows box to hand. The new tool, imaginatively called rspro82, should work on any modern platform, so long as you're comfortable installing Python packages.
