        Yes, we compile programs directly into production.  The main reason is 
there are no development libraries at most of our client sites.  They don't 
want to
spend the money...  sigh.  Also, at the sites where the clients have development
libraries, there is such a disparity between the development side and the
production side that if you move programs from dev to prod they will (dare I 
say it?)
level check.  

        Remember, I didn't write this code, I don't endorse the way these 
are organised, and I don't really like it all that much.  This is the state of 
affairs which
I inherited when I came to work here.  I work in the Support department, so I 
have to
support these clients the best that I can.  The Development staff are working 
to a higher
standard, and as clients migrate to our new product many of these pesky problems
will go away.

        I'm truly sorry if I started a fight; I was *trying* to read the mood 
of the list
regarding some of the situations we have to deal with.
