respawning? ..good use of a term normally geared towards unix Bob.
Such respawning, for me, can result in turbidity, though turgid the
salary can make.

tar'ing 'em up to a floppy shouldn't be difficult. 'tar cvf /dev/fd0
*.rc' to create and 'tar xvf /dev/fd0' to extract (IRIX probably calls
the floppy something other than /dev/fd0). GNU tar is better but I
don't suppose it's available.
