I would be willing to give programming a try. I also am a programmer
by trade and a Newtonite by love, but willing to start newtonscript.

I haven't programmed in C++, but have in C, and most lately in Perl using
objects. That is my background in a nutshell.

I have a PC at work and 3 Macs at home. Let me know what or where I can
help and I will buy the necessary tools. My email address is above.

I agree that a more generic approach is needed.
