RE: Command line utility??

Sorry, Hamish, my mail is going mad and I'm routinely getting messages just
now that were sent two or three days ago. Some messages aren't even making
it through at all, and Linus' message about that keystroke is one of those I
still haven't seen.

Hi Aman

~lImbus came up with this solution a couple of days ago which was just what
I was looking for. Was never a dos user so if this was a normal keystroke
that might explain why I never knew of its existence.

Cheers
