Thanks, and I know there are plenty of bugs... but do let me know of any you

O.k. that can be added easily enough.

Yes, most definitely - that will be added too.

O.K. that's a very good idea.  The autoplay really shouldn't be there, I
just kinda left it in.

hehe, yes, a very good reason :)  I just used the source code from
makewav, changed the "main" function to "makewav" and passed parameters
to it via an array of pointers.  I wanted to get something going quick.
I could also use a RAM file, but I'll have to look at that.

Thanks for the input.
