Yes, I use scanRecord in many places and love it.  I am currently running
R3.13.5.  The absence of scanRecord or an equivalent in R3.14 would be a
complete show-stopper for an upgrade.  

I have never looked at sscanRecord before, but just reading the
documentation it looks like a superset of the scanRecord with  somewhat
clearer documentation.  Would an sscanRecord be a direct substitute for a
scanRecord (i.e. backwards compatible)?  

I am puzzled, however, because the documentation explicitly states that it
uses recDynLink which is normally distributed as part of the package.  If
the purpose of the suggested changes is to escape from recDynLink, how would
we be better off using sscanRecord?

Cheers,
Dr. Russell O. Redman
