If you just type "antechamber", you should get an immediate error message
and usage statement. If not, something is wrong.

You don't way whether or not antechamber passed the test suite. This is
always something you (and others!) should do first: before reporting strange
errors with _your_ input, check the program out with _our_ inputs. That
really helps narrow down the source of errors.
