Thanks.  I didn't test the claim.

Also interesting that ETHO Edit accepts file names 27 characters and 

Attempting to store a file with name longer than 31 characters yields 
an "invalid name" message.

An intermediate length, 28-31 characters yields a trap. An error 
message would be better.

Thx,                                       ... P.
