where would i find the audit-packages package? the pkgsrc manual
says that it's in security/audit-packages, but the directory

It's now part of pkg_install -- go to pkgtools/pkg_install and do a
'make update'.

"The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to
constants; instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every
appearance, the variable PI can be given that value with a DATA
statement and used instead of the longer form of the constant. This
also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi
change." ___Early FORTRAN manual for Xerox Computers

You'd be surprised...  I remember a program written by an a
acquaintance that stopped working when the trig library changed.  He
finally realized that he had to solve for pi -- that is, find the value
near 3.14 for which sin(x) yielded 0....

All parts should go together without forcing.You must remember that the parts you are reassembling were disassembled by you. Therefore, if you can't get them together again, there must be a reason. By all means, do not use a hammer.
