This is something I want to avoid at all costs.  Would setting the flag with
chmod, I mean attrib prevent this or would DBT crash.  I have long wanted a
list of file types and their functions, but I suppose the days of technical
references is long over.  There is a wealth of information in the list, and
I have scrupulously saved each message. as everybody knows it is
scintillating reading, in lieu of a soporific.

cheers

As a matter of fact, Jack, that is exactly what I
mean.   Not all of them, but enough to make it a
very serious worry.

Besides as I am sure you know yourself, it has
more or less become an accepted practice in
computing to warn a user if a file is to be
overwritten.
