technical notes
   Perhaps the program should have an option to define the number of columns
   for the line numbers.  An earlier version computed this.  However, to do
   that requires resetting the file and prevents the program from being used
   as part of a pipe.  The current program simply uses a default value for
   the number of columns so that number can be used as part of a pipe.

   See cumulative.p for a solution, not yet implemented.
