Somehow this has gotten all confused.


I AM writing the direct access to the MySQL database via PHP and a web 
page. This is to allow for anyone to do dynamic updates to the 
documentation database. That was never an issue. This is being done.

However, Danie Brink asked the following question:

   "Could a tool be written to create documentation localy" ... "I only
   have a internet connection at work, and at my friend for now."

All of the SQL dump stuff was for his and ONLY his benefit to allow him 
to work OFFLINE.

The main database work is to be done ONLINE.

Are we straight on this now???

Now Danie I am confused by your response.

Markku's suggestion is what I original stated in my first email. You 
said that you don't have internet access and that is why I was mention 
the other things for you. Are you now saying that you have no problem 
updating the database from the internet?????
