Dear Paul,

Thank you for the prompt response.

In terms of being able to follow up with GIT DIFF, you need to
remember that I am a newbie. I have no idea even what that it, let
alone being able to reformat anything with it. I did a search on Yahoo
and got over 8 and a half million hits on that combination. Hopeless,
no doubt.

The easy way to see the text is to just put it into a text editor and
let no word-wrap be in effect. It was formatted beautifully when I was
writing it. I spent a lot of time making the columns align and putting
the experiments in logical groupings.

I figured on hitting someone's frustration level a lot earlier. Thanks
for listening so far, anyway.

            All the best to you and yours,

                   Abdallah Clark
