in reply to Windows - have program replace itself

:) This is my first post, so Please be nice.

Any ways here I go.
1. copy the updated files into thier repsective locations.
2. Run the new script in place of the old one
exec 'scriptname', @ARGV;

That is what I have for you...

    Welcome to the Monastery! We were all new once.

    Your suggestion is basically sound - and I knew that already. My problem was that I wanted the script to replace itself automatically. Thanks for your suggestion and enjoy your time here, if you find it only partly as worthwhile as I have then it will be an immensely rewarding experience for you.
