It helps if one reads the docs with the emulator! The Bixhex program with the 
emulator unpackages Image OK providing one ftp's the NIH file as an ascii file. I
originally pulled it as a binary file 'cos that's what one does for PC files. 
Mistake! It only wants to unpackage as an ascii file. Runs fine on a 66Mhz 486
with 16Mb and the v1.99k emulator. I'll register the emulator so I get more ]
than 10 mins. use.

My mind's made up. Don't confuse me with the facts!
