Hi William,
I don't understand why you made your comment?
I was expecting replies of maybe "the pressures of getting an example
to fit the article made his example maybe a little artificial" (but
still useful). or people agreeing or disagreeing with the idea of
modules that are also Unix scripts.
I can't see how Cameron being a consultant has anything to do with it.

Cheers,  Paddy.
