Since I've already got the sources downloaded,
and I'll probably soon have it "made" ok,
I probably won't get the blastwave "binary"
(actually, solaris "package"?).

But  a question:

Suppose in a case like this, you like the current
version ok, but want to try the new one.

However, in case it's not so great after all,
I'd want to keep using the OLD one.

Looking at the blastwave page, it implies (says
right out!) that the new one gets installed
OVER the old one -- the old one would be GONE,
no?

So, first question: how to be able to restore
the "old" one?


Second question (similar): Suppose you want
to *compare* how they run'; you want to
be able to run either one, or, for emacs,
have both running at the same time, switching
between via switching from one (cde) window
to another.

How to do that?

Thanks!

David
