There is a caveat to consider here - I probably should have mentioned it sooner, but in making it a separate snippet that would only include the core support necessary to produce a database for use by the mud. That would not include doing anything actually useful with it. There would be no way to guarantee the state of whatever data was going to be imported into it and will require the writing of extra conversion routines to generate the new database info.
Thats what I meant by full support.

When if the code was edited, most people who can install a snippet should be able to be able to follow the +/- lines to install it by hand if they had to. If it came down to it, maybe a diff patch and a snippet? Its more work at first, but once the snippet is installed you'd just make the diff file :tongue: I don't mind what way its released, I'm just pumped to try it out :biggrin:

If you want I can convert/clean up my snippet for 2.0 and throw in some conversion functions for some of the static files to mysql and you can release it with 2.0. Most of the work is already done.

I think what I'll end up doing is leaving the core SQL components in the code but let the help files part be handled separately as a snippet for it. Seems the most logical way to strike the balance. That way if for some reason people are on crappy hosts that don't allow SQL or are using Cygwin as a production environment they can still use the code and just leave the SQL stuff alone.

That makes pretty good sense, Samson. :smile:

I tried to register on mudfiles.com but did not get any verification email. Can you check whether it's able to send out emails?

I posted my AFKMud patch for MySQL on mudfiles.com if anyone is interested. Its pretty simple to get going and I included a sql dump of the db with the stock help files in it already.
