Take that back, checked the files on the CMD, they are ok (no padding on the
end), so It's most likely on the Mac side ??? Gonna have to test with
something other then Zterm...  So much for an easy transfer.

HA, just try to find one; there are a few that let you, 'edit' the data, but
not adjust the file size....  This has been a frustrating experience...  But
the end is near.  (Actually I did find a couple candidates but the company
that made the compressor it was archived with (which it probably distributes
free) SELLS the extractor, so I have no way to unpack those progs...

Better finish this, I feel like I'll be back to work tomorrow.
