Yes I do, but I am not comfortable handing them over without his
permission. Yes yes better ask him. However it was a two step process.
 The perl script extracted the dates into a newton source file, that was
then compiled into a working package. I have the active pearl and I
will give it a try shortly. If I am successful in creating the
packages, I will defiantly pass them on to everyone.
