I tried to install this and got the message that c.ado and c.hlp already
existed and were different.
Trying them out brings up a calculator command.  This is in stbplus.  I
didn't write it.
Perhaps I downloaded it at some time in the past.
The comment I have is: "is there some convention for not using the same
names for programs"
