Hi  Chet,

Thank you.  It had to be something reasonable.  I did not know
bash had add-on packages.  How do I determine what I have?  :)
Thank you.  Regards, Bruce

(I searched for "package" in the man page, but that word is not there.
And I did download Ian's package, so I have it at home now, too.)
