Sorry to annoy with something so trivial, but...
I notice that some CBAers are starting to send their data with the
columns separated by semi-colons (;). Some of my analysis and plotting
programs choke on the semicolon. It's straightforward to eliminate it
manually, but after doing it about a hundred times, I conjured up enough
guts to ask you to change, if possible. Spaces amd/or commas are fine,
If you're stuck with semicolons for some reason, fine. It just takes a
minute to fix it... but now that many datasets have them, I've been
making this correction very fast, opening the door to errors.
