Wow, better late than never. Just saw your response. Thank you. Still
remains the LIMIT handling and general code tidying.

Thanks a lot also for the SVN direct commit offer, I'll give it a
thought or two. I'll also get some info on SVN and how it works.
Meanwhile, since I'm not a user of SVN, just in case I'll decline: Don't
want to trash the whole of Gambas on a bad commit!
