attributed comments made by Stefan Roth to you, as you say.  My public
apology to both Stephen and Stefan for introducing the confusion!  (And,
thanks again for everyone's enlightening info on this topic.)

	    Poor debugger support on TI. Local variables in a frame are only accessible by
	    calling some strange function (EH-LOC, etc).

    I know I didn't make this claim.  I don't dispute its accuracy
    (on which I'm not qualified to comment), just its attribution to

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset or anything about the
    misattribution; however, I wanted draw it to you attention.

Yes, thank you for the correction.  Perhaps Gary Roberts (not to be
confused with me, Robert Pfeiffer) and I should form a new mailing list
for people who confuse people with other people on mailing lists. :-)
