RE: st: problems using SMCL for hlp file
SMCL seems to require a carriage return at the end of lines and -to be on
the safe side- without trailing spaces. In my text editor (NoteTab) I
usually use(d) 'word wrap' at window or column edge, without carriage
returns. That was the problem.
Thanks to Nick Cox and Roger Newson for their replies.
