Subject: error in caput ("caputting negative numbers")

    Hi, everyone.  I was wondering if anyone can help me out.

I try do the following :

caput channelName.VAL -1

and get the following:

caput: invalid option -- 1
Old : channelName.VAL              0.00

if I do:

caput channelName.VAL 1

it works.

It seems that I can't use "caput" to input negative values.  What's
going on?

                                        Cheers, Vitaliy
