I've got a big problem with most people these days who write
<under the green butterfly at the top left, you should click....>;
because I mostly fetch TEXT; which doesn't cater for different fonts,
nor cartoons. Have you `lynx -dump <URL>` -ed modern htmlS
to see that 90% is just repeated garbage.

Because I don't know how to get WiFi under Linux, I'm using M$ now,
and a <scam web-page> started talking to me. Yes sound.
I don't want that <popularism>.

Yes, but what about all the different W:H ratios these days?
Besides ETHO's whole method of working is: you see it and you mouse it.

BTW your idea of removing the extra manual steps, is exactly what I've been
harping on re. <extend ETHO to functional/piping>.
One attribute of functional style, is that the input to stage(N) is the
output of stage(N-1); so eg. to find the list  of procedures in all *et*.Mod,
ETHO, manually  creates a TextFrame from: System.Directory *et*.Mod,
which becomes the input to the next stage: using the Find.Tool.

As you know these steps have already be condensed into a <Panel>.
But rather than apeing MS: functional/piping capabilities would be more
reusable. So if the list-of-files could be piped into `grep` automatically.....
