Of course that is all correct and much more precise than what I wrote, thanks to bring the details back to my and other's mind. I didn't really want to make the impression it has to run on the server side but merely wanted to mention that it can do so... > I am using the nbcache utilities for Mathematica up to v5.2 in both CVS and SVN > environments.

I think I should start using it again... albert
