Oh - me & my big mouth ;) It was written in Turbo Prolog which, as you probably know, is non-standard. I certainly don't have the thing on disk now. I do have hard copy of the coding somewhere. But I think it'd need a bit of re-writing to make it more standard. At the moment, as the end of the academic year approaches, things are pretty hectic. When things have settled a bit, I'll maybe get round to looking out my material and rewriting the program. Vivat Prolog! Ray.
