Update of /cvsroot/netrek/client/netrekxp/include
In directory sc8-pr-cvs7.sourceforge.net:/tmp/cvs-serv27902/include

Modified Files:
	data.h parsemeta.h 
Log Message:
This patch merges the COW metaserver code.  It adds a UDP metaserver option, which can be refreshed, that merges data from all known metaservers.  The UPD metaserver can also solicit other servers as if they were a metaserver, and supports the server option to display a comment rather than server name.  There is also support for multicast server packets.

data.h, data.c: Changes default metaserver format from array to comma delimited list
parsemeta.h: Fixes description of parsemeta function
console.c (LineToConsole): Increases buffer size (large error messages like displaying the metaserver packet was causing a buffer overflow)
cowmain.c: Adds support for metatype sysdef option
main.c: Renames old -m option to -M, and adds -m option for UDP metaserver
newwin.c: Changes how metaserver window dimensions are set (slightly wider, height variable)
parsemeta.c: Extensively rewritten.  Highlights include new server fields, bug fixes related to the size/initialization of the comment field, and new metaserver headers based on what optional fields (age, ping) are displayed.  Totally new functions, such as ReadMetasSend, grow, server_find, version_s, version_r, ReadMetasRecv, SaveMetasCache, and LoadMetasCache, have also been added.
