Thanks for picking up on this, much appreciated.

I always though the responsibility of good software developers was to give
suitable documentation so that reading the source code in order to use a
executable was not required.

Thanks for taking a look at the code and deducing that use case. It's just a
pity that isn't in the source code file. I shall definitely give it a go based
on your thoughts.

I'm guessing ts-section-write.c works likewise
