* Improved "|" operator for regular expressions

The veditlog.txt file gives a short listing of each enhancement, change and bug fix:

The whatsnew.txt give gives a short summary of enhancments:

While only applicable to a small percentage of users, the new "Flat to CSV" conversion was a major effort on our part. (The flat-csv.vdm macro is nearly 1800 lines.) It is in many ways a small subset of our EBCDIC conversion macros.

The long requested "Open with VEDIT" function required writing the first .DLL for VEDIT - vshellx.dll.

The "Sort lines & remove dupes" function runs the very simple sort-dupe.vdm macro.
