that is a very good way to get around the problem!

At the moment, the definition is changing as i go along programming, adding
in new cases as i go along.

i cant be bothered thinking up all the possible cases that i might need,
because i just know later down the track i'll think of a new one. So that
method of adding an extra one at the end seems like the solution i am
looking for.

Thankyou for the information.
