Finding orphaned "put"

Hi Scott,
This will list lines that have a continuation char - "/" - at the end with
into/after/before on the next line.  Pretty remote circumstance but I tend
to do that if I have a particularly long source with lots of "&" and "&&"
to make it more readable.

Still think the regexp approach is the easiest - no scripts, just uses
standard script editor find function to look  in the current object, stack,
stack file, etc.
