Thanks for your changes - I will review them and follow them in the 
future :)

I thought about decoding the ascii payload.. but programs running with 
exec don't always have ascii only.  The old application used at my work 
uses exec to drive a GUI on the client so it's all unreadable.  What do 
you think about doing a check to see if it is printable characters, and 
if so display it?
