*  All files with filetype starting S$xxxxx are samples;
*  you may create alternative versions of them.
*  The filetype which CONINT requires is xxxxxx (without the S$ prefix).
*  If   you create your own version of a file(s),
*  Then please ensure you use the unsuffixed filetype
*  Else create unsuffixed filetypes from the supplied samples.
*       You can use CON1LINE EXEC to create unsuffixed filetypes
*       from the supplied samples and compress them at the same time.
*  (This scheme is to avoid a CONINT sample overwriting your customised file)
