not wanting to offend anybody. But this has some good amount of
absurdity in it, i think.
And for any Newbie following that its actually quite frightening.
Frank calls his way of doing "hell" and it only includes 3 steps.
And Hans Christoph calls his way "easy" and it includes 10 steps ....
.... monster monster-hell......
Another thing i always found strange about tthe mapping-collection. If
you want to use the helpfiles
in one of your patches and actually use more then one you get into
What needs to be done to restructure mapping ?? I could help maybe,
because its a library i used very often and found
it very useful. I would be happy to do something good to that
All the Best
