Re: winDig

Ok, Jamal, I'm embarrassed now.  I've just been invoking WinDig from
the desktop & didn't even pay attention to the start menu icons cuz
usually the program contains a help menu item from which the docs can
be read.  So I kind of assumed there weren't any.  Sorry.  Duh!  I
feel really stupid now.  I don't know if it's age or grief or what.
