yes, i noticed with thanks your suggestion. i had heard about vuescan but i 
had also forgotten. from internet it seems that it supports digital ice, 
which i need for my old and scratched films. now i am short of time but as 
soon as i resume digitalizing my collection of films i plan to visit vuescan. 
incidentally, although i am a unix user, both linux at home and bsd on 
institutional mainframe, i have nothing against proprietary software, 
especially when there is no need to modify the code, as with drivers. i pay 
for them with satisfaction. it is different with computational programs (both 
mechanical and quantum mechanical): proprietary software withouth source code 
where to intervene does not allow to do the job transparently, resulting in 
blind actions and finally a waste of time for users.'
