You're welcome.
I'm glad if I can be of some help.

The problem is that sometimes descriptions for tools are real lousy.
That's why we don't don't find them when we need them.
	console-data, for example: I think I saw the description for this
tool several times in the dselect window when I searched for something to
change the keys here. But nothing in this description was telling me what
I really can do with it. In the end, IIRC, I found a usable explanation
somewhere on Google or so.

That's why I often say: Coders often are good coders; but some of them
can't talk to humans ...

If we're lucky, Clive, this will be read by a programmer out there. Or,
even better, by his girl-friend .. :)

Have a great week-end.
