Hi Alexander,

That sounds good.

No problem.  And also a "status-file-css" option?

Well, the man page (not even a POD one) is not up to date for innfeed...
I have only taken care of proof-reading the innfeed.conf sample file
which states:

log-file:           innfeed.log         # relative to pathlog
backlog-directory:  innfeed             # relative to pathspool

gen-html:           false               # if true, status-file is relative to pathhttp
status-file:        innfeed.status      # otherwise, it is relative to pathlog

I think pathhttp would be the best choice :-)

> And what about sample CSS files?

Also in pathhttp.
Do you want several CSS files for innfeed?
Or maybe are you speaking of innreport's CSS? (wanting to put in a CSS file
what you also embed within the script?)
