Let's say I used the following command to run fpcup for the first time on a clean directory and made no changes to any settings files of any kind:

fpcup --fpcurl=trunk --fpcdir=c:\development\fpctrunk

What will happen if I run fpc_update?

Will it know to just "update" the trunk I have with all the latest changes to Laz and FPC? (I didn't see much about this tool in the wiki)

Right-click, properties and see what it does.

1) Ehm, yes, that's why it's called fpcup_update.
2) Please update the wiki.

Thanks, I thought so. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't going to go off and use a settings default that was different than the original way I ran fpcup.

Sorry for all the basic questions ...I've never seen these tools before so I am overly cautious.

And thanks for such a well thought out and useful program.
