well, thanks. your answer makes it clear that i have some debugging to
do. i didn't post because the documentation changed; i posted because i
got the error message
"Rectangle called with 3 arguments; 1 or 2 arguments are expected."
somehow it must not mean what it says.
i also see that i forgot to say i am using a macintosh, OS X 10.4.9.
since i was using dave park's drawgraphics package, i need to construct
an example without the package. i'll get to it. given a choice between
being productive or crawling thru shattered notebooks, i think i'll keep
working for a while.
vale,
rip
