Yeah, apparently. 

I'm a long-time Unix user, I have no problem with command-line tools.
Lets don't have a gratuitous gui-fication of tools where it adds no
useful functinality.

So, back to my problem.... I don't see it documented anywhere WHICH
names are to be used for the books... I was assuming it was the full
names, i.e., the first ones in the array. Am I wrong, should it be the
abbreviated names, the second column in the array?

Was just trying to run mod2vpl, again, on an existing module to refresh
my memory and verify this item, but now I can't get it to find the
input module. Duh, must be having a senior moment.

Useful advice will be appreciated.
