thanks a lot! i had kind of hope that it wouldn't be too complicated
to incorporate it into my script but you made quite an effort ;-) so
i think i have to use it as is - don't know, we'll see... it's of
great help anyway! so thank you :-)

well, i'm developing on linux; however, i thought i could make my
script platformindependent, but that's not such a necessity.

i definitely think so. thanks again (i have to admit, this "image
generation stuff" was quite a mystery to me, but now that i am able
to look at how you've done it that may change ;-)
