OK. So bite the bullet:
1. Implement commands corresponding to network functions
2. Leave the network functions for 1 release as empty shells that merely output informative error messages (i.e. not just "syntax error")
3. Provide a program that goes through selectable program directories with user provided mask (e.g. *.bas, *.inc), and for each
network function reference, output the line and the line number to a file, and if conversion is easy, do a conversion, i.e.
lvalue = networkfunction(p1, p2,…pn) => networkcommand p1,p2,…pn,lvalue
Include in this new release some piece of functionality that many have been clamoring for.
