Wow-wee is that refreshing gang, thanks.  I do recognize that I could
have done more of my own homework here, but: as a neophyte programmer,
that is endlessly true (of an endless array of topics -- I think
otherwise known as an "infinite regress"), and it is always nice to find
something spelled out in a clear, concise manner. Then I can move on
quickly to the next conundrum, rather than having to investigate some
vague insinuation at every step, potentially wasting other people's
time in the process.
