Martin,
  Your program seems to check for errors while your running the program.
 But it leaves all of the trace material in the log.  I'm looking for a
program that
passes through the smcl file, finds the errors, makes a record of what line
they are on, and then on a second pass erases the command generating the
error
and the error, to clean up the smcl file preparatory for a double check
of the syntax.
  If you know of such a program, it would be helpful to
get ahold of it.
   - Regards,
       Bob
