Ok-- again subscribed to hackers till your questions answered.

I think you missed some of the documentation. On the first page, click on 
documentation, on that (intro) page, click on 'how it works'... it will tell 
you about primary keys.

Use this script to make a test table....

  id serial NOT NULL,
  "int" int4 DEFAULT 0,
  string varchar(100),
  text text,
  logic bool,
  blob bytea,
  "time" timestamp DEFAULT now(),

Remember that in replication, when the tables come together, primary keys have 
to be unique... what SPAR does is intercept the serial key generation to make 
sure this happens correctly.... docs will explain how I did it.

On your other question licensing... I havnt thought about it too much.

I'm just a hobbiest and I need a web site for my estate agent business, but a) 
the computer business's that came to see me are not very good, most are just 
punting someone elses expensive product b) I live in a third world country 
where a leased line and an ip address costs more than a months salary and c) I 
love geeking.

So all thats happening is that I'm building up my own technology so I can host 
offshore, at reasonable costs.
In the next version of both Spar and Ese, (the search engine) I'll will put a 
license in... it will always be free for use and distribution.
I being thinking about open source, and I like the business model behind it. 
When I have my site going I'll do that, will give my site admin a derivative 
business, that way I get the benefits of core ownership and code 
improvements... otherwise I cant see the benefits of a business model that just 
gives code away.

I make my software free, because the feedback is tremendous, makes for a better 
product, and someone will always say, have you tried this or that, good guage 
to see if the software deserves to live.

Maybe I should put this on my products, "Made by an estate agent just passing 
through" ha ha.

In the case of Spar, the core code or "tricks", to make Postgres do it, are 
actually in the script.... thats on your dB anyway.

  ----- Original Message ----- 

     For the tables created by the script I sent you earlier, (one int 
primary-key, one normal int, columns), the entries are red; I did try the 
databases individually, still didn't turn green. One thing though, when I 
selected the databases individually, the background turned white, which, 
according to comments on that page, means the rep-server was not able to 
determine the status of this table. 

    psql.exe -p 6543 test -c "create table test1( a int )"
