Examples and Tests:

DATA_***.TXT is a short sequence of three files, each having 8 data items, 3 on the first line, 3 on the second, and 2 on the third line, to be examined by FILE_SEQUENCE_SIZE.

MARCUS_TEST is an example that demonstrates how FILE_NAME_INC and FILE_NAME_DEC can be used to generate, save, and recover iterative data;
