I was just wondering, Neil. what your experience in "production for
pharmaceutical prescriptions/labeling/instructions" software would be.

I'd be glad to read some stuff you've published or other software
solutions, if it's not proprietary software. If it is, what companies
have you worked for in the health sector?
