    Working on a simple program for automating a basic script template. Have decided to write the code using FreeBASIC http://www.freebasic.net/ which I hope will give folks an outline for writing and testing POL scripts.

    It will have a certain amount of error checking - removing spaces and non-alpha-numeric symbols as well as having a database for wine versions (cannot be error checked for typos).

    All data will be stored in straight forward text files (nothing complicated).

    Will send a pseudo code of the structure of the program soon.

    Do the developers for PlayOnLinux already have something like this?

    I don't really know? I'm doing this more for fun and learning about script writing at the same time.

    In that case, definitely have fun. I just didn't want you to work on something that was already done by developers.
    Please post your updates here so we can see your progress
