Hello, Alvaro et al!

    Yes, I finally got everything to work. I had to use

# apt-get install sudo

when I installed Stretch because sudo is missing from the installation
package.* I just couldn't remember the installation command line. It also
doesn't help matters that the wi-fi signal is unsteady at times.

    You live by technology, you die by technology, I suppose.

    In any event, after I installed locate, everything worked.

    Now, if there were a way to automate merging duplicate authority
records together, e.g., 651  \0‡aChina‡vMaps strewn over multiple records
into one authority record, that would be great.

    Thanks for your help.

* Don't ask me why sudo is missing from Stretch, but there is widespread
flabbergast over its loss since sudo is such a basic and useful command.
sudo is reinstated in Buster, however.
