Since I didn't know that the problem was not with PAUSE until the node mentioning the patch, I'm not sure that the title wasn't accurate at that point in time. Vague perhaps, but still accurate. A quibble and your point is taken. More importantly I had not known about the modules you mention and find that very useful--- thanks! Don't understand the last line though; what did you have in mind?
