thats what i was worried about (just realised I hadnt checked the first 
edition, just 2nd and 3rd!). the fact that its not in either the 2nd or 
3rd might suggest:

a) theres something wrong with the script
b) theres a better way of doing it
c) longer scripts were taken out of future editions.
d) something else.

as long as its not a or b I'll just rework it to fit my new requirements.


ps yes a quick check in old pink camel book turned up this script pages
