Re: Need help with dia

sorry about that
i just get a bit defensive

some people have neither the time nor inclination to use or understand the
manual and want a quick fix.

on a technical list such as this it is a fair comment that i should make

span, i blame Mtv)

glad it was just a misunderstanding

Belittling those of us who do not choose to learn the details and arcana
of Unix or choose to become programmers or sysadmins is not helpful or
