RC> I couldn't get your nodelist parser to work, so I re-wrote it.
Creative code posting, eh? ;)
RC> I don't know which one is faster,
Your decoder runs at the same speed as mine, just about.
RC> Pnt AS INTEGER
Nope, because there is no FTSC standard for listing points
in the nodelist...yet.
I found a slight bug in your reader. When you encounter the first region, be
sure to make the net number 100. That bug was in my
decoder aswell, so it's not your fault ;).
RC> I have some ideas for a small nodelist format.
I also have a packed format for the nodelist, using 5 bits
for one byte in every text string. Plus making every flag
into one bit.
RC> Is there any special information you'll need in the nodelist,
For SirrusMail, I presume? I'm intending on using a ISAM
database hybrid system.
