Hey Merlyn, I'm with you.
Over 30 years of coding has taught me that no mater how much I thought I knew at any given pojnt in my existence, I can pretty soon prove it wasn't much!

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
