Subject Re: Multiple values for a parameter
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2002 05:56:59 GMT
The User Parameters config element is similar to this, except it's values are held in a gui
It would be a simple matter to study that code and figure out how to do the same thing but

reading the values from a file instead of the gui table.
