To replace to QQ's in the .wld files is pretty simple actually.  In vi do:


:%s/QQ/30/g          search and replace all of the QQ's with 30.

With ## being the zone number you want.  It's been about a year since I've
done this, so please refer to a unix reference book or an online help guide
the exact syntax.  The g = global.  If you do it without the g, it will
search and replace
only the first occurance.

%s = search and replace.

Good luck,

Tom Dailey
