	Hi all,

	Could any one give me an example of this configuration using
$include ?

	What would be the content of the include file ?

	Thank you very much.

This is a perfect use for $INCLUDE.  Put all the common entries in one file,
and put

$INCLUDE myzone.common.db

in the internal and external zone files.
