Hi Daniel,
              Sorry for not replying - was busy with meetings thereafter. U
know how these company meetings are ...huh!! :) Well, thanx for answers.

I shall have more questions - compiling and linking etc. Later ofcourse !!

Sure, i shall let you know once the port is ready and can release my changes
. That should really be helpful to others like me.

Thanx once again.
