Hello Gregory,

> You're right--the version on Aminet is 1.4. :) Thanks for the new one!

Feel free to upload the version I sent you. But edit the docs to reflect my
current homepage and email first.

I think that I've gathered enough info to do it in a close to clean way.
Sometimes I think about re-written BEdit, because the source was made many
many years ago, in assembler, before I knew the ins and outs of the AmigaOS :-)

Kind regards Allan
