If the pen is mightier than the sword, I suppose a pencil is powerful, too.

Can you send me that program?  Or PDL for it?  (I don't know whether
I could read the APL if sent digitally, but there's a FAX number on
my website.)

Reason: My 6th grade son has become fascinated with particle physics and E
= m * c**2  If I can translate the program into Ada or Java or even C (or
find a free APL for Macintosh), I'm sure he'd have some fun with it.

If you can't send it, I'm sure we could write one ourselves.....
