guess its pretty clear what i mean :)
it would be nice if esniper would delete old auction lines
from the auctions file
1. on startup, if the auction is already over
2. when an auction ends
btw thx for your efforts :)

    You're welcome.

    esniper doesn't currently write to the auction file, and I
    don't think it should. Old auctions are useful if you have
    to restart esniper for some reason (even reboot your
    computer). If you are bidding on mulitple quantites of an
    item, you ususally want esniper to consider the auctions
    you've already won (which esniper does, by default).

    You could write a simple shell/perl/awk script using the
    output from esniper -i to cull old auctions from a file.
