Changes are as follows:
Need a return at top of the
__DATA__ record to be compatible with obsolete
DataPort::Maker program module.
load_db subroutine. Added test for the same.

Probably differences in New Line for Unix versus Microsoft. Thus, run the
__DATA__ through the smartNL routine to see if File-Maker has a better reception in the UNIX world.
DataPort::Maker for POD NAME. Changed POD NAME to
Changed synopsis for a target so that it now nay return a
$self object reference as well as
$success. This allows targets to pass data between each other via the
$self underlying data or even create a different class object for $self.
