thanks for the info! i find it very hard to locate information on some of the 
things i want to work with... in the past, i'd just write my own but trying to 
move to the newer capabilities and features while also learning the new 
environment AND remember what i used to know like the back of my hand is a job 
in itself... i will take a dig into those and see what i can see... hopefully it 
won't be hard to drag the routine(s) out and get them to work for my needs...

i'm contemplating reading the original file into a stream and then processing it 
from there before writing the final output files... i've only worked with 
streams a few times... this should be interesting... maybe i can get all the 
processing done at once with a few passes thru the stream and then spit out the 
final files at the end... it would be better than now where the finals are spit 
out as we go and then get more processing externally :)
