Hi, it's a bit crazy to argue that these are the same. I can send you the images and the scripts, problem solved! I can't send you the exe file if you're using a different platform. System calls complicate things a lot. People might use grep for instance instead of parse, because they know how to use grep and haven't bothered to look at the docs for parse. Gisle
