And the same for bc(1) and `bc -q', etc.  Note, dc(1), embedded in bc
for the GNU version, doesn't spew forth;  surely a bug!?  :-)

How I wrinkle my nose at that noise.  I think RMS should have put Unix's
insight of having no needless output for the user to scan, unlike say
DEC VMS, above the promotion of GNU.

Cheers, Ralph.
