In theory, a sound idea. In practice I often use files depending upon certain user preferences / locale. eg. english.dic, vic-pcodes.dat. No point obtaining 100 files if user choices will only lead to several being used (some of my data files get quite large). Reminds me of the old static vs dynamic linking debate (only get the resource when we need it . . . but what happens when it isn't there, etc). Having said all that, I think most of these issues are data related, for code (ie. .r files) I think it is a workable scheme. Regards, Ashley
