Brief instructions for the contact list enhancer

Thanks to Andras for testing and ideas !

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
AwCLBot reads your AWorld contact list entries and can retrieve or update the current nicknames.
It has 3 additional fields for each entry : Name, EMail and Comment/homepage
These three fields are editable so you can keep track of name changes and append additional informations to each contact.
No need to have bot rights in any world as it does not enter a world.
The bot doesn't have all its features with AW 3.3 and later, as it used to get the list of citizen numbers in your contact list from this text file.

What you still can do : create an empty text file contacts.txt in a new directory, copy aworld.ini into the same directory, because it gets its universe data from there, and you will be able to still use the world rights tools and add new entries with right click to the list window.

Automatic filling it from your AW browser contact list doesn't work anymore though, sorry :-/
New feature since 1.0.0.9 :
Citizens can be added by name or number (it was a bug that it didn't work before).
Added a world tool to help manage the chaotic world rights entries.
New feature since 1.0.0.8 :
You can add entries to the programs own contact list that is not affected by the 100-limit of AW.
Use the context menu or the keys "Ins", "Del" and "Space" (=edit).
