Oliver,

Below is a 2.2.3 version of what you requested.  Take a look, and try it.

I think it meets your specs.  If you want a 3.0 version, I will be glad

to help.  If you want modifications, send me a note.  The last four lines

are simply a test of the package, and of course, can be deleted.  If you

have other needs, I will be glad to consider them.

sincerely
