    Last time you couldn't stop the function.
    This time you couldn't get it to display with out a key press.
    You see that right? : )
    Ray says>> But did it quit or close when you would hit 'q',
    just curious.

    only curses I get to work with are the
    ones I use when I am having a frusrtating
    problem like you were facing. : )

    From: "Dr. Peer Griebel"

    Ray says >> Hi Alex
    I certainly didn't want to take anything away from the good doctor.
    He not only helped me solve the problem, but pointed me towards a
    very interesting module that I might have otherwise overlooked.

    I've got to say that the amount of modules in Python is completely
    mind-boggling. I'm sure many people have written convoluted
    functions that could probably have been replaced by simple "from
    module import function" command.

    I guess python isn't only about learning the proper syntax and such,
    it's also about learning about all of the modules out there.

    .... Lord, what have I gotten myself into... :)

    Thank the gods that there are places like this newsgroup and the
    [Tutor] mailing list. I have to say that I'm super impressed with
    the sort of community the Python programming language has. Everyone
    is really very helpful.

    ....and I was simply confused earlier when I said I had posted to
    another Ray. For some reason, one of your posts showed up as
    "author: Chatralias".
