As I said before, I've only just found a way to generate the diff output on
my mac.  Actually, I just noticed another thing.  I use 4-space tabs for
indenting.  I'll have to go through and fix that too.

Fair enough.  I assumed it was something like this - I just wanted to check.

Okie.  Would you like me to resubmit them as diffs?

Ok.  As I said it is very simple, but you need SOMETHING like this on a mac
(unless you use JShell :).

How should I go about submitting this?  It is a couple of classes.  Should
I just attach them to an email and mail them to the list?

JShell is very cool.  It uses swing by default and so is a bit of a memory
hog though.  I pointed him towards ant soon after I found it :).  He was
going to write his own xml based dependancy system.

Well, I'd prefer to squeak too much.  I'd rather apply my own grease.  It
would just be nicer if others got to share the grease :).  I think I'll
stop extending that metaphore now :).
