you have

select case instr(lcase$(command$), "-s")
case is > 0
       StatusSwitchS = TRUE
case else
       StatusSwitchS = FALSE
  end select
select case instr(lcase$(command$, "-p")) case is > 0 StatusSwitchP =
val(left$(right$(command$, (len(command$) -
instr(lcase$(Command$), "-p") - 2)),
instr(left$(right$(command$,  (len(command$) -
instr(lcase$(Command$), "-p) - 22)), chr$(32)) case is =
0       StatusSwitchP = FALSE  end select

Hmm....  Too bad I'm limited to 80 colums <grin>.... Oh
well.... Hope this helps....  (excuse if there's any
little typos... Got all this out of a program I just
finished, so I may have some )'s off....
