Thanks for the notes about the database files.

Ok, sorry. I did forget the update step. If I had done the
update would everything have authomatically been alright or
would I have had to manually delete my copy of the files
which you had separately deleted in order to avoid having
them re-added?

Understood. I am amazed once again that the open software
movement has gotten as far as it has with CVS. But that's
dedication, I guess. But once one learns to cope with the
limitations of some complex tool, it is hard to give it up
even when something better and easier to use comes along...

You are absolutely right that I should have tested the
change to the database first (by re-compiling interpsys
again after changing the database files, obviously)
*before* uploading my changes to the CVS. Sorry.

The current interp/Makefile does not actually update
the database files. How do you plan to handle this in
the future? Would this normally be done as part of
every build? So does this always mean that we have to
build interpsys twice?
