I made the assumption that it'd either be space + 3 digits or 3 digits + space - but I should've included a trim just to be sure in case there was the occasional leading space missing. The important thing though is that Louis has a good few routines to tweek now. He could change the format of the code to anything he wished and easily modify these to suit. As to the degradation - I wouldn't know what causes that. I've detected garbage collection with previous speed tests, but never a general slowdown over time. -- Carl Read
