   This is the one I use.  I recommend adding at 110:

$dir =~ s/\$(\w+)/$ENV{$1}/;

   (cope with, e.g., $HOME as an arg.)

> my $newlabel = substr($file,$i,length($file) - $i);


                 @chunks = split /\//, $file;
                 $last = $chunks[$#chunks];
		my $newlabel = string_protect($last);

   Now just need 'paging' for big dirs ...
