    of course, you need to know what squash is in this context....

    here is the section from the xdp11 manual which mentions alt on the last line:

    well == oblong is not really a rectangle
    as it does not have any square corners

    The definition of oblong seems to vary worldwide. This is what I was brought up with:

    UKhaving a flat shape with four sides and four angles of 90 and opposite sides of equal length:

    an oblong box
    Violet sat down at the oblong oak table that was against the wall.

    in mathematics an oblong is any rectangle except a square - generally it can be applied to any 2D object that has been elongated along one axis relative to the other... (the clue is in the name)

    EDIT - guess I'd better qualify that and say in everyday terms you can apply it to 3D objects as long as you realise it only applies to two of them [the dimensions that is]....

    Ditto, but I have misplaced my Artwork Disc 1 somewhere in a house move in 1998.
