Cool. Weird... but cool. Thanks; I've added it to my bag of
tricks (which already contains a heckuva lot of craigm code & ideas).

Guilty as charged. I briefly considered cleaning up the code so it
handles that case, but decided it wasn't worth the time investment.
The esmsize() function serves in a controlled environment where I
know the _name_ of the structure element I want ("DATA"), but not
the dimensions (incredibly complex -- but flexible! -- telemetry
mode sets for an instrument on Deep Space One).
So in the usual "write-code-when-I-need-it" manner, I left the
multi-line HELP handling as an exercise for the reader... and
never thought anyone else but me would even care.
Wishing I had the time to hack PDL to where it suits my needs,
