Mr. Patrakof,
     In the above message when I indicated that there were 20 lines on  
top of the first two I included I meant that the screen was filled up 
with lines like those two and the info you refer to had indeed run off 
the screem.  If I had the info I would have typed it in.
 I have already done so for three or four screenfuls, so I beg your 
pardon on being lazy:)
 Do you mean you want a fast motion video of it scrolling off the screen?
Couldn't there some way to dump this output to a file?
Thanks?, Howard
