It's just that nothing like that is being done now, and I didn't know if
it would be OK.
I can't seem to get a response from Jim or Michael, so I'm trying to
figure this out on my own.
At this point, I don't even know what would invoke this parser.
Would the TCL do it? for instance, would I have to do something like
catch a MI output command in the TCL by grabbing the regular expression

That would en tale modifying all of the .exp files, which would really
I don't even know were to start. :(
