I believe that you are stuck with this. This appears to be a fundamental
problem linked to the command line parsing method of IDS and PV Wave. I
use the latter for plotting purposes, but any serious computation in that
environment is out of the question for the reasons you state. And, I do
hate seeing the *lowest* level functions and procedures at the *top* of
a file! By the time work begins all those things are pretty well debugged
and I would prefer not to see them at all.

Amateur user's opinion, of course!
