LOL.  Nice story.  I agree that it is a good video.  I have to watch it
several times to be able to reproduce it without consulting the video.

Thank you very much for the information.  It was very useful.  In fact,
eev is much easier each time I use it.  Your work and your guidance has
been very useful.

What does this mean?

In conclusion, I must make a file with the hyperlinks.  There is no way
to recover the place that I last left the files that I have visited and
open theme there the next time I open them.  I still have to open my
hyperlink file fist and then go to the files from there.  Is that

How can I make a file with those links be modified with the data of
point of the file which I am closing?  Then, when I open that same file,
the link file would be consulted and it would place point on the place
where I last left that file.  Is that possible?
