Robert, Your questions are certainly valid ones, but probably not for this Q&A forum. I would suggest that you post your question on the Usenet newsgroup, which is populated by professional programmers, etc. Alternatively, you might want to visit where there is a listserv discussion group handling technical questions like yours.

This Q&A forum is intended by people who are concerned about the impact of Y2K on their personal lives -- e.g., what should they do about their bank accounts, or their jobs, or whether they should move out of an urban center to a smaller town, etc.
