Presumably, but I don't know for sure - I didn't create the package,
nor have I looked at it.

If the source file doesn't have a comment block heading each function,
it is rather severely out of date.  (I'll be happy, of course, to send

should have the FFS-reading code.  I don't think I've touched that part
of it in a long time.
