Re: Clip or Script to strip headings from a file
- Thanks again Sheri.
You have been a great help! Also thanks for the reminder about the
message wrapping the clip lines. I might have stumbled over that one.
I have been able to do all that I wanted and more in my clip. I hope
I can find more uses for the clip programming to force me to learn more.

- Glad I could help. I'm sure you'll find many uses, clips are real
timesavers even if they do take a bit of working out in the beginning.
I would recommend experimenting with my clipcode syntax package. I had
gotten a bit rusty writing clips myself, but with the clipcode syntax
clip I was able to get right back into it.
