Now I want to use this simple authorizer in around 50 different regions, so I want to keep these simple lists in standard places for each region and then tell the authorizer where to find these config files. If I use -initial-env to pass a config-directory variable to my authorizer, does that mean that I'll have 50 authorizers (plus their instances) hangin around chewing on memory? I guess I could deduce the config-dir from PATH_TRANSLATED each time, but is there another ENV variable that's passed for each authorization that I can exploit? many thanks, -- kov -- Ken Overton email@example.com Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I AM more important than cheez whiz.
