Well, we need the entire file... I was trying to avoid the read and 
write to rev-ram and the ditto  was an instant copy across our 100 
base-T LAN.. but in a pinch we could use binfile... trouble is some of 
these InDesign 2 files get pretty big...(pg 42-42 of our current issue 
is a 25 meg file)

Hopefully Adobe's new workgroup RCS in the Creative Suite will  take 
care of everything. But still need to get ditto to work for other copy 
file routines...
