Hi Robin,

Do not agree completely. If the generated does not change, no compile
is necessary (IMHO). I mean, if only the passed in values change, similar to a
subroutine with parameters, right?

As it seems, I have to bite the bitch and look at the API's. Perhaps I need
to come back to ask for your expertise.

You recommend xspParser. If you have a link to the API docs at hand, I really
would appreciate it.

Thanks again and do not work too hard!
