Agreed. Many tasks simply would be impossible to carry out within a
reasonable amount of time without -ds-. I encountered it for the first time
just by chance in a program posted on the list...

Maybe I shouldn't piggy back on this thread, but I've always wondered 
why such a useful command like -ds- remains undocumented.

While documentation with good examples does exist in the help file, 
it still doesn't make sense to me that this command is not in the manuals.
