Good thing you're near retirement age as your kind of job is on its way out much like the secretary of middle level management in decades past. Just an observation, not meant to be mean.Programmer writes code; Some who develops algorithms doesn't necessarily need to know; he just passes the algorithm he wants written to the programmer who codes it.
I'm not a programmer so much as an algorithm developer. It might take you two minutes; It might take more.
Since I already have a library that works with the makefile, I don't need any more adventures; I'll keep what you said in mind and maybe try it in the future.
