uuuggghhh, a fair cop on all counts. You are not the first to discover that
acedb documentation is not brilliant.

OK, I'll make a rash promise... the next release level of acedb (4_9) is soon to
be released and I'll make sure all README's are up to date for that new release.

Really sorry about the state of the docs....

If you have any questions do post them to this newsgroup or mail acedb
developers direct at acedb at sanger.ac.uk.

cheers Ed
