To whom it may concern, 

I finally found and installed version 5.1.3 of the software.  Even though I 
Have used it for just a day or so, I can really see the difference.  As far
as I am concerned, I am not going back.  Like anything else, it will take a
little time to really learn it but I like what I see so far.

You are welcome David.  Just so you know, if you really can't give up your
block cut, copy, move etc, commands in the sequence number area, I believe
that WDSC LPEX editor supports those commands in the sequence number area of
it's editor.  I didn't like how I had to get over there to key the commands,
so I learned the alt + L to highlight a line, then a few lines up or down do
it again to highlight a block, and then use alt + (C to copy, M to move, D
to delete) the highlighted lines. I think once you learn it it is much
faster, and easier to see errors in coding, lines that have been commented
out (different color) etc.

Give it some time, and learn it.  It is not a fast change over.  But I
really hate having to go back to SEU for any reason now.  And subscribe to
the WDSCI list.  That list is monitored by the IBM developers, and by many
WDSC/programming guru's like Joe and Jon.  That is where I learned the most
about capabilities.

Joe won't pay me for this, (darn it!) but I believe he has a book on how to
get comfortable with the RSE part of the tool.  Replaces most of the PDM

Good luck!
