Oooh, some else that used MOM spider. I had a much hacked
version converted to Perl 5, with the new libraries and all, which
should still be available from somewhere in the physics department at
umass -- unfortunately, I no longer have a copy since NT ate my old
hard drive; and I have forgotten where it was in the physics
department (Susan Klienman, are you listening? do you still have
contacts with the physics dept?)
I liked that program. I contributed the code to the authors,
but they seemed no longer interested in it (they wrote the original
for a paper, I think).
Even if you aren't in doubt, consider the mental welfare of the
person who has to maintain the code after you, and who will probably
put parens in the wrong place. --Larry Wall in the perl man page
