Elmo, it's probably neither cocky nor funny, but before you pass 
judgment you should Google this group for "time machine" and read 
awhile.  (I was merely attempting to parrot a traditional response that 
is given around here when someone asks for something which is already 
present in the language.)

And whether I misinterpreted the (ambiguous) question or not, my 
response provides the required information to put together a solution to 
the OP's question.  It would just require one extra level of 
indirection, so to speak, to do what Robert suggests he might have wanted.

(Uncocky enough for you this time?)
