Thanks Jason!

A wonderful help.  I had spent a few days looking for something to do this for me,  and here you go pointing me at the docs for signal and I have written something in less than ten minutes that works perfectly.

The code from the above example seems to be overkill for what I need at the moment,  and seeing as this is the first thing I've written that wasn't more than a glorified text masher,  it adds a level of complexity that I don't want to dive into at 4am.

Only thing left is to write up my FAQs (cause I've written it in python I don't assume everyone has it installed,  and because I've used optparse to deal with my parameters I have written instructions on downloading and installing optik for the earlier versions.) and try to figure out a try statement that will import from optparse or optik, and then I can post it. 


Thanks for your help.
