Good! (It would help if you explained how you had the two different
versions, incidentally.) What you need is like the first version, only
you want to break the lines every time the digit changes. That can be
done pretty easily. All you need to do is print out nothing, followed
by end-of-line; and you need to do this in such a way that it happens
after all of one digit has been displayed, but before the next one is.
Can you do that?

Side point: Google Groups makes a horrible mess of your posts. Please
consider switching to the mailing list, or to a better newsreader. You
