Ok, here's a link to the zip file containing all the .pyc files, along with 
those text data files, and I now included what's meant to be a cross platform 
module that can clear screen, and beep, called clsbeep, so there shouldn't be 
any windows specific requirements in here as such:
http://www.blindza.co.za/uploads/mapData_pyc.zip

Sorry, but am also laughing now, since it totals like 13Kb - as opposed to the 
roundabout 4Mb in the windows only version...<smile>

Obviously, the starting point would be the file, mapData.pyc, and will also 
just mention that if you made changes to a copy of the mapData.txt etc. data 
files, the command line argument to tell it to look for something specific is 
just adding something like a map=mapData on there.
