Hi everyone.

I want to announce that another simple-but-possibly-useful program has been placed in the SSC Archives. This is -floattolong-, which recasts float variables to long; it is intended as a companion to -collapse-. Whereas -collapse- is concerned with shrinking storage space, this converts to a more appropriate data type, where possible. It's very simple, but very convenient if you need to do that sort of operation frequently.

Also, if any of you picked up -carryforward-, which I announced on August 4, there is now a new version with slight improvements.

Thanks to Kit Baum for placing these in the SSC Archives.
Thanks for you consideration.
-- David
