As I said in my posting, that's fine and what many people do.

You could build a wrapper around -generate- that takes what it produces

sorry but it seems i haven't made myself clear. My fault. its not that i wanted to change the code and thats it. i wanted to get the code so i could make my own .ado-file. if that is illegal i'am sorry but i really didn't know that. there are so many "unoffical" .ado-files out there, that i thought i could change some of them the way i need them - for my personal use...i didn't mean to hurt someone copyrights or something like that. for sure i didn't just wanted to change the code, but wanted to change it and create my
"own" .ado-file like myowngenerate.ado. too bad that this isn't
