FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
  • Is there a mailing list?
    No, not yet, when I get a few more users of comment one will be started up.

  • Can I email you with suggestions/patches?
    Sure, feel free to adjust the program and submit your patches to comment200406@pldaniels.com

  • What's with the numerical extention on your email address?
    It's a short-term usage email address in order to combat spam-spider/robots which scour WWW sites

  • Will anything get affected if I edit the .comment files by hand using 'vi' or some other tool?
    Basically, no. The only thing which Comment looks out for is if the first character of a line is '#', in which case Comment treats the line as the start of a new comment.
