Making the move...

Hi Geoff,

One does come to mind, it's the startup handler(s) of my splash stack, 
and they are broken down serially into 7 or 8 different handlers, each 
numbered sequentially with a handler name.

And because I want to be able to read them one after the other, I ended 
up programming them serially. Some were as long as 50-60 lines, others 
shorter. Because they form the code of virtually all of my applications, 
I wanted them to be very easily read, and updated.

This worked for me. May not have for you, I don't know. I doubt my brain 
can grasp thinking in bigger's working overtime as it is!
