Great Steve. Now, I won't claim that is the latest and greatest code I ever
whittled on, so if you stumble onto something that needs more help, jump
right in, you won't hurt my feelings a bit. A new knife is often a little
sharper, at least until it get some wear on it, and there is now 74 years
of 'wear' on this one.
Thanks, and have a Happy New Year.
