Umm, I can't run anything...I don't have access to machines for a few
weeks [GASP!]  But I'm assuming that this displays multiple identical
sprites all in the same horizontal line.  If this is the case, they
can be used to represent extra men, as in Kabobber.  (Don't know if
Kabobber used the same trick, but the application is the same....)
