Dear Steve or Hagai
I would like to evaluate your men2egs program on HPUX 9.06.
I've already picked it off your ftp site along with the manuals.

Please send me temporary key strings for:

hostid = 20056789ab    hostname = bogusboy

I plan to use the program to move data from HP's Series IV
microwave layout program into BoardStation

Thanks much,

John Boy
