John, you make a good point.  That is the future, no doubt.  But I have
always wondered why RPG, a business oriented program, would have an opcode
for square root but not an rng.

btw, you said "we can create OUR OWN opcodes."  As Tonto said "Where'd you
get 'we' Kemo Sabe?"  I can't yet bind a program, let alone write a C++
program.  It is not a viable choice for me and never will be.

Maybe someone will put together a small set of callable tools just for
these special things?
