 Thanks, I've just read the man. What it doesn't say is how much space
it really needs? Or even what exactly it contained in the meta data, if
I don't know these two variables then how can I instruct it to create a
metadata structure of a certain value. Hmmm, I'd just like to understand
better that's all.
