what can I say but great :) Thanks guys.

ok, couple of things after playing with genbooktest
did you mean this instead? (set text doesn't work unless you enter "." ;) )
-if ((buf != '.') || (buf != 0))
+if ((buf == '.') && (buf == 0))
when you get the text back after entering it, the newlines are stripped, dunno if this is good or
there is a local variable key as well as the class variable key. This is confusing. (at least I think
that is what is happening, I think this may be causing problems but I'm not sure).
The rest is working great.

Hope you had a good sleep :)

btw, I haven't noticed you saying. What are you out there for, what are the meetings about if
you can say?
