My goodness. Either you are really pulling my leg (and succeeding very
well) or you really don't READ your email before you answer them.
I'm comparing my mad.c which evolved over two years versus the one in
mc-2001-07-29-14.tar.gz. Did that version chance dramatically? I doubt

pfff, you must be overworked or something. I was refering to the patches
in the file edit/edit_key_translator.c that YOU put in TWO WEEKS ago
(2001-07-10). Just search on "Steef Boerrigter" in the Changelog.

Fair enough, that sounds like a priority issue.

I shall look into the glib safety measures and get back on this subject
as soon as I know whether glib does in fact support bounds checking and
other type memory errors that are treated by MAD. If there's really no
point in putting it in MC than forget about it. Actually, some people do
use other libraries than glib and other computers than intel boxes.

I need little additional disencouragement. And if you really do not like
to answer a simple question, fine!
