At work on a Saturday

[ #2254 ]
Well, here I am at work on a Saturday, making up for all the time I lost trying to debug two little programs. At least I got them running, thanks to lots of eval's and alarm handlers.

Hit a strange bug with 'alarm' and 'sleep'. The program would die with the message "Alarm Clock". The Camel says they don't always play nice together, depending on the OS. I learned this in testing on my Solaris box the hard way. Some sort of bug with 'sigaction'. Fortunately, it only has to work in Linux (which it did, btw).

Anyway, I guess I'll work on prettying up an Excel spreadsheet that I said I would work on.
