[ka-Map-users] RE: specifying mapfile on the fly

This document:
and a Ka-Map User's List posting of the same name may help (a little).

Essentially, I have created a variables.php file which is called by
init.php, and which references a desired map file using the $szMap php
variable.  Then, I modified config.php to *not* read in the whole list of
map files if the $szMap variable is previously set.

If this is at all useful, let me know.
