Or better even in /var/tmp/. BTW: this method isn't such a Great Idea[TM], as someone implied (and it wasn't Richard, who certainly knows that). It's rather the usual way to do things like these. sendmail does it (you have to compile the ascii files yourself), KDE does it: every config file is ASCII in good old MICROS~1 *.ini format; but behind the scenes, they are collected and compiled into a binary database by kbuildsycoca. Most KDE users probably don't know that, and that's how it should be. The *rc files are still open. Nobody cares for the cached binary blob. And not many know it's internal format, although it's, of course, documented. m.  "KDE: build system configuration cache" :-) _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list Flightgearfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
