You disappoint, Richard. What, no documentation with a favourite 
sharpie, for, at least (In - from Bell) and (Out - to phones).

With suitable pictures, of course, and proper filing of the wee little 
multiply folded instruction sheet that comes with the filter, and 
expands to a piece of paper some few hundred times the size of the 
filter itself?

We live in an interpreted world, now, don't you know?

Who needs compilers! We can make anything infinitely complex enough to 
satisfy anyone's needs for scope creep - we're computer people!

Where's your spirit, man!
