Hi,

Yes, if the data were 5 x 5 (instead of 512, 512) then all I want is  
a buffer that contains the data:

0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,   5 lots  
of (0,128,0,128 in a line, and 5 lines, making 25 groups of 0,128,0,128)
0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,
0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,
0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,
0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128,0,128

Thanks a lot, I think that should do it! I guess when I have my C  
head on I find it hard to think in TranScript!

All the Best
Dave
