Sure it would! I agree. But it's not likely to happen like that when
someone is beating their brains out, getting all hot under the collar
and a rant ensues when the documentation is so poor that he has to
scurry hither and yon to dig up 2nd and 3rd party answers that he
may/may not trust off of the net. Heck, that's just being human. At
least he didn't use cuss words. Man pages are getting sparse. They used
to have pages of information AND examples. I'm not seeing that much
nowadays. <grins> Ric
