RE: Adding Prep

The last reply bring me another question:
 Are the change that Thomas suggests me to done (and I thanks him
a lot about it) change something in the way that the server save the
database or (as I hope it was) that's it only a reference to the prep
that is save?
 That the LambdaCore db will continue to work or I have
to make another db core from minimal.db (or may be a entirely new
minimal.db ... :o FRIGHTENING!)?

Since Software can always be RECODED, the opportunity exists to rethink   
nature of the compiler, and make it a little more flexible. But then,   
might be considered a different server, as it wouldn't be supported by
PAVEL and Freinds.
