vrf Simple things (?) Reiner's ques

Question asked by bwalden on Mar 18, 2003

I'm getting all my text transactions output at the same time after a
delay equal to the sum of all the "wait" transactions.  If EOL is "on",
the output is an array of the individual transaction text items.  If EOL
is "off", all the items are concatenated into a single long string.
