That was the line which was origianlly driving me nuts. And of course, this
is largely a readbility issue. I had to right a perl subroutine to print out
all the ascii characters for me to figure out what they are doing (incidently
the comment to try 8 at a time is misleading since it is trying 4 devices
at a time.
For what it's worth, man ascii gives a chart, but it cuts shout at decimal 65
or so. It's a broken man page.
