Steven, All

If anyone does re-develop this, maybe it would be appropriate to port it 
to Java, so as to run on more than one or two platforms.  I'd imagine 
that more people will have Java runtime environments on their machines 
than, say, Perl interpreters or C compilers.  (And I say this as a Perl 
programmer.)

I might put this on my list of "things to do when I get time" to write 
at least part of the functionality in Perl, as a CGI programme.  Any 
chance we can have a look at the source?  I'm sure that Delphi can't be 
harder to read and understand than any other (well commented) 
programming language.  Think I might even have Kylix on one of my machines.

Cheers

M
