Well, I am blown away by how this stuff works.  After a createlang command I
put the two use commands back into my function and changed the language.  Now
all I have to figure out is the RETURN problem.

Another question:  Is there an issue with using the untrusted perl language? 
If the code is tested and working is there any real reason to continue to have
"use strict;" and "use warnings;" in the function?

Kind Regards,
