Purpose: Strips line numbers from BASIC program listings to enable editing in View.

Method: SAVE a copy of the BASIC file in the same directory as Striper. LOAD the BASIC file and *SPOOL it under a different name. CHAIN"STRIPER" and it will prompt you for the BASIC filename just saved. STRIPER finishes and saves a file as listing.

Now switch to View and READ LISTING (It will not LOAD!). Remove the first and last lines and SAVE immediately with another name. Delete the file LISTING and the file you *SPOOLed from BASIC to clean up the directory if you wish.
