Be my guest Thierry, and with my thanks.

There might have been a time when I might have tackled it as I have walked 
around in and emitted some C code when I was in my early 60's, but that was 
both on simpler hardware, and something over a decade ago now, and what I see 
being called C today bears little resemblence to the simplistic K&R I cut my 
teeth on 20+ years ago.

Cheers, Gene
