err.. thanks guys. Understand my position though. I was on a 1200 baud
modem, (so I can't use those trendy autowraps that pico has - because
pico causes one of those cool NO CARRIER messages that I always get...)
So here I was, in Vi <shudder>, typing away merrily, and I get a 3 minute
warning. I'm sure all of you who use the dialups know what that is :P
Since I was in elm (and I hate elm) and I don't know whether it
postpones, I was in a *bit* of a hurry.
And now look what you've done. Gone and made me write a whole page
reply, even with my 80 column formatted. And I'm in PINE and PICO, and
hence very much at home. :)
In case you're interested... I'm using the switch...case method to solve
my little varargs problem. Thanks for all the responses.
