Subject Re: Functions run when configuration file is read
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2008 19:04:53 GMT
That was the idea I had, but it seems it is a brand new run of all my 
code, thus the variable values are lost and re-initialized. I've been 
working on writing to a file on disk, and reading that in, but that is a 
lot of over head I'd like to avoid.

Thanks though.
