Two suggestions:
- put code under version control (easier to share),
- PLEASE, add license banner at the top of the file.

Of course, your software is single file, but it could really simpler
if you provide a more complex project with:
- standard COPYING file (for license)
- standard README file (for tips and usage)
- standard Makefile (with 'all' and 'clean' targets)
- ideally standard ChangeLog and NEWS files.
Following these conventions is certainly easier for people to use your
software, even if as simple as a single file.
