That's one answer I suppose!  I quite liked using Hugs for that 
particular program because it's a script that I didn't want to spend 
time compiling.  Oh well, it's not that important.

I did notice that the script runs much quicker with runghc rather than 
runhugs.  Is there any way of making runghc work with a script whose 
name doesn't end ".hs"?

Good suggestion, thanks.
