Oh, ok then :-). Nothing fancy in it, just error messages...

        It doesn't need to be on a single line, but that's irrelevant.

Prove it! :-) If I use pico, the wrapping method will insert a new line and
by the same time, I will lose the rest of my string (...the rest of my
exclude expressions). You can use pico to write your exclude_urls on 1 line
(when the $ appears) but sometimes pico also screws everything up. That's
why I'm using Nedit now, so easy to work with. I know you told me that you
were using Emacs and it wasn't inserting a new line character. That's good,
but the result is the same: the exclude_urls is written on 1 line.

Hmm, unless you know some "special" characters that enables you to do
otherwise. if it's not the case, than you have a better version than I do
