The first thing you need to do is stop, take a breath and write down 
step by step exactly what you want done.  At the moment you sound like 
you are flailing about, and you aren't going to get anything done that 
way.  Stop and relax for a moment.  The example program you have already 
should help you figure out what information is available when.
