   I guess that's what's happenning, as when I increased the files it
worked. It seemed so extravagent that another 18 files would be open to
run a simple pascal program I didn't even think it worth checking! I
wonder what all the open files are?

   Well, it's not, so I don't know what's going on there. I have some
other computers and other compilers - I might try some mixing and matching
to see if it's a problem with a specific computer/compiler (when I can
find some time for this that is! :-( ).
