$10 Words, Etc.



To Jack Shafer:

Re "Overusing $10 Words":  There's a routine for Xy4 and XyWin in
SmartSet
(SMARTS24.ZIP) called REPEAT, which may be of interest.  REPEAT
analyzes your XyWritten text for repetitious words, including
grammatical variants and similar-sounding words.  A report
appears in the adjacent window.  It lists repetitions occurring
within a proximity that you can specify, and
*quotes* the text spanning the repetition, so you can see
immediately whether there's a problem.  If you want to JuMP back
to your original text to see more, there's an easy way to do
that, too.

this in mind, I turn ...

To Nathan Sivin:

... and ask, Is there any way that files can be attached to
messages addressed to the Group?  (This may be asking too much, I
know.  But it's sooo terribly tedious to convert "textified" XPL
into the real thing and vice versa.)  Or do we have to direct
such files to a separate location?  If the latter, could you
remind us what that location is?  Thanks.
