kdl_wrapper is a very thin package, it basically wraps *kdl_parse**r* to
make it quicker to get a kinematic chain definition from a URDF-defined
robot. I included an example with the PR2 in the src folder, for
initialization you just have to specify the root and tip links of the chain:
I can make that clarification perhaps in the description of the package.
