I tried Magic Carpet when it was first announced, and it was a good 
backup/archive/version-control system, but I don't remember anything 
about auto-update, and there's nothing about auto-update in the web 
pages about Magic Carpet.

I did (eventually) find that advice. It's well hidden because some other 
emails in the archive refer to it, but have the wrong link. It should be
http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-revolution/2003-August/021626.html

and you're right, lots of good advice, looks like a good system, etc.  I 
was just hoping for some working example to start from.

Richard Gaskin has most of this in the auto-download used in RevNet, so 
I may try taking that and expanding it into auto-updater.    Sounds like 
a project for a quiet evening ....

Thanks
