Hi Larry,
	This thread started with the idea of a new cruise program and I'm sort
of interested in what people use, what they like and don't like. I've
toyed with the idea of writing one too but have never gotten around to
it. I've hand cranked cruises but long ago appreciated the speed and
improved accuracy that a computer gave you. For my own work, I use ACE.
(I am NOT advertising) It's not what you might call "friendly" but gets
the job done and can be run on a palmtop.
