Thanks, I came across that tidbit just after I hit the send button.  Still, I 
appreciate the quick answer.

With that and a little more digging in the manual I got it to work perfectly.  
I guess that's the danger of running an old example with a new interpreter.  
I'll have to do more groundwork next time.
