Tape analysis documentation

Tape Tester produces a number of output files with various results, which can then be analysed using built-in method in the main Tape Tester program. This procedure produces an html final report output with the entire analysis. The actual analysis of the results is performed using Python3 and a few custom scripts. Documentation of the source code, used for analysis, is written in TapeAnalysisDocument. More structured documentation with source code is stored in TapeAnalysisFull, open index.html to access the Home page of the documentation.
