I gotcha beat here, I know basic C++ and diddly bout C. Right now I'm
just a tester. :=) Would this be the proper time/place for a buglist or

I was looking into making the syntax matching work with whatever is
entered in Options Menu-->Compiler-->Whichever Compiler--> file-postfix

BTW...I did some tinkering with different types of files and mistakes
last night and the Debug-->Success-->Debug-->Mistake-crash bug is
definately fixed.
