<sigh> since my Compuserve days (25+ years ago) I have been told to
RTFM. But, I never gave that line to anyone I helped on line.
Your point is well taken, however. In these days with man pages and
google, I should really try that first.  One thing about man pages; I
wish they organized the options in categories of "most used", "seldom
used" etc.

Anyhow, I really don't want to start a thread on this issue as I have
a lot of reading to do! Have a nice one!
