   |   I can confirm that it works:
 Great.  Thanks.
   |  Ok...  Ok, i realize that the NetBSD shell allows function names
   |  which contain a hyphen-minus.
 It allosw more than that - anything but \0 and /  (and that exception
 only because it is impossible to call a function if its name includes /)
 (And yes, you can have a \n in a function name ...)
   |  Very nice!!!  I am inclined to correct an elder and wiser man in
   |  that it should be "auf", 
 Much elder, I presume, not at all wiser, and yes, of course, no idea
 how I screwed that one up ...  (it was all so long ago, and I never
 was very good).
   | and yes, why not "Auf Wiederschreiben"?
   |  (But i never encountered this term.
 I am not particularly surprised.    Especially when ciao works!
   |  in Germany that is, but mind you, it will not take long and we are
   |  all talking English, unless a miracle happens.)
 Americans!  (so it probably won't really be English).
   |  I wish i could put some heart and soul in calligraphic Thai.
 Me too.
   |  Good bye!
