    I've found lots of interesting scripts in /scripts/ that I've seen no official mention of anywhere. Is there any possibility of getting a short description of all of the scripts in there?

    Thanks!

    They tend to slip new ones in every once in awhile also.

    I agree, it would be nice if they threw some kind of script_description.txt file into the scripts folder and updated it with each new or removed script.

    Sure you could read through each script and figure out what it does thephantom, but who has time to go through all of them? I do not care to figure out the logic of 100 scripts I am most likely never going to need. A short description (something longer than the filename
    :p ) like shorty said, would be a nice reference. If you see a script you feel may be useful in your particular situation (based on the description), you could *then* take a look at the logic and see if it really fits your need.

    shorty, sometimes I get the impression that thephantom pays for their internet connection by the word. ;)

    sHORTYWZ,

    Unfortunately I haven't found any resource that fully explains all the scripts and what they do. Most of the filenames are pretty descriptive though, even if they are one word.

    Please ignore "thaphantom", she is full of her self importance and actually contributes very little if anything to peoples queries. A quick search will prove that point.

    To add something worthwhile to this thread, you may like to ask someone at http://www.cpanelfaq.com

    Oh by the way, apparently post count has something to do with how you are thought of around here. I hope my reply does help though.
