I am on the road and have limited access to the Internet.
I won't have regular connectivity until Wednesday, August 1st.
FYI, as of Sunday, August 5th through August 11th, I'll be traveling
again and probably hard to reach / slow to respond.
You can have a first look at the XCDE groups' code via their CVS
server, located at
tschmelcher.homeip.net:/XCDE (pserver protocol)
user name "anonymous"
password is empty
They are willing to contribute their code as is.
