Yes. He is responsible for several programs sold by breeze/qsd aka powersoft that were extremely successful and popular for the TRS-80. I presume breeze was formed around the same time Greenview did.

Maybe I should elaborate on that some, I am specifically referring to invoking VPW from a program called Total Commander, as an external editor. I can't imagine it make a difference but perhaps. Anyhow I place in the external editor field VPW.EXE -S and the path is shortened, w/o the -S it's long. Nothing major, I since have set instances to 1 in vedit and dropped the parameter. Either way it really didn't seem to present a problem.

Hmm. I'm a hold out. I only began to use W2K a few months ago. I'm not aware of it's nuts and bolts too much. At any rate, I'll examine this stuff some more later. Tired. I blew my schedule by staying up all night.
