MMM. Thanks Dave... I tried sending

A) HELP  and


on two different servers we use, on local OSX on the LAN and one remote 
at our ISP in Honolulu

and in both cases the response in "answer it" was

A) Help command not implemented
B) 214 Direct comments to support at

Oh well.... the read[old] write[new] delete[old] will work just fine 
for my small file manipulations.. but 6-8 megs of audio files will be a 
different story.
