Thanks, the `y-or-n-p' function is perfect for what I was looking for.  But
now I wish to have something like `y-or-n-p' that asks me if I want right or
left ps footer, like this:

 Right or left? (r/l)

.  If I could access the `y-or-n-p' defun, then I could try to adapt it to an
`r-or-l-p' version, but can't find it anywhere.  Please any suggestion?

Thanks
Rodolfo
