Thanks! That's the best possible reply I could have received, and beyond my wildest expectations. This will save me lots of work.
I'll take a look at it and try it out.

Thanks again for sharing this. I'm sure it will be incorporated into Yaws; it's a great feature.

I already have code that does this, modified from Michael Leonhard's
work. My code also allows setting a file size limit. I'll send a copy
to you and to Claes. Maybe it'll get included in a newer yaws release.
