Re: non existent script called with --script=all

Would it be worth while to have Nmap generate the script.db file on
the fly if it isn't present on the system, and then simply not
distribute it from SVN? After all, its generation isn't
computationally intensive.

Oops, that looks like my fault. I probably updated the script db with a test
script sitting in my folder.

Run:
nmap --script-updatedb

That should fix it.

On a sidenote: would it be possible to print out the changes when somebody
runs nmap --script-updatedb? That would have made it obvious to me that I
was adding the wrong script.
