First, thanks for the reply... and second, sure but what is the audience
size for peephole optimization or "worse" if I can call it that. Some of
the texts I've come across (appear) to be targeted to "Parallel Compiler
Threading in TCP/IP for ISAM files on a AS400" <g>

I can run Clipper compiled .OBJ files through MS link, TLINK, PLINK86,
Blinker (real and protected modes) ummm Causeway (protected mode linker),
if I could write something that linked by any one of them I'd consider
that an accomplishment.

I thought I had A86 and don't remember seeing code for it nor do I recall
seeing it on the giant list of free compilers but I'll check it again.

Cheater, cheater pumpkin eater (just kidding <g>)

So who could teach me this and how much would it cost ? I take it this
isn't something one has to do to get a Master's in CS ? If so do they
make everybody rip up their notes before they leave class ?

Thanks again for your reply.
