Hi Patrick,
>From WordNet (r) 1.7 [wn]: (shortened!)
probe n 1: an inquiry into unfamiliar or questionable activities; "there was a congressional probe into the scandal" v 1: question or examine thoroughly and closely Once upon a time pat665, french new rebolist spoketh thus:

Now, mc at the time is a view face, and these are BIG! Probing them is like trying to cut a whale in half, using a nail-file. That said, running this code needs about 15s until the first probe output is shown, and about the same time until it's run through. I'm on a PIII 900, Linux, how long did _you_ wait? ;-) Kind regards, Ingo
