Subject: Re: A Format catalog question
The CNTRLIN option, that you referenced in your reply below, actually is
spelled as CNTLIN, I believe. And I don't know what those letters CNTL mean
with this respect. I wouldn't understand why if it ment 'control'. The C
might have to do with Catalog, but the rest?
