  True; I didn't mean that as a slight against
tux_aqfh, I just meant it wasn't good for getting
started with PLIB quickly.
  Now, when I wanted to know how to follow terrain,
that source code came in very handy :)

  I'll probably do that.  Right now, my technique when
I need to figure out a certain function in PLIB is to
grep for it in the Tux source and look at how it's
used.  At some point, I'll likely go through both
programs in their entirety to get a feel for how
they're structured.
  But thank you for the code, it's certainly helpful. 
(And provides me with ample distraction should I get
tired of coding :)
