Writing software that ignores explicit configuration directives is a great way to wind up with undebuggable software. In a conflict, which one wins? In the case of duplicates, what else in the configuration is unreliable and/or unintentional? It's much safer to exit. If you're concerned about outages, use --test before you make changes to the production service. khm _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqemail@example.com http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
