The facts here are that two of the most experienced and most knowledgeable BBC BASIC users struggled so badly to get my utility working that they were both unable to without extensive help from me. I can confidently say that most people would find it more difficult, not less, than they did.

I'll do a deal with you: if - despite the deadline having passed - I receive encouraging feedback from some of the others who offered to test it, but have not yet responded, I will reconsider my decision not to release it.
