 A few minor bug fixes, and REDIM PRESERVE.  The PRESERVE option allows
 you ro size an array on the fly adding great power to programs.  Example:

 Datafile% = FREEFILE
 DO WHILE NOT EOF(Datafile%)
        Items% = Items% + 1
        REDIM PRESERVE Items$(1 to Items%)
        INPUT #Datafile%, Items$(Items%)

 In this example, you don't know or care how many items are in the array.
