[mrtg] Multiple WorkDir

Let me start by stating very clearly that I am NOT a programmer.  I run
MRTG on Windows.


I have been using MRTG for years to monitor switches, routers and other
devices.  The one thing I have always wanted to work was the ability to
define multiple Global WorkDirs. The documentation, since the first
version I ever used, has shown the following example ----


cfgmaker --global "WorkDir: /home/tobi"            \
          --global "Options[_]: growright,bits"    \
          --ifref=descr                            \
          --ifdesc=alias                           \
          public at router1.place.xyz                 \
          public at router2.place.xyz                 \
          --global "Options[_]: growright"         \
          --ifref=name                             \
          --ifdesc=descr                           \
          public at switch1.place.xyz                 \
          --ifdesc=name                            \
          public at switch2.place.xyz > mrtg.cfg


seeming to indicate that Global Options can be initiated multiple times
- and thus leading me to believe that Global Workdir should work the
same way.



However, my feebile attempt to utilize more than one WorkDir fails.
While both entries appear in the generated config file, all graphs are
created and/ or updated in the last defined directory.



Cfgmaker  --global "WorkDir:

                 --global "Options[_]: growright,bits"

                 --subdirs HOSTNAME

                 --community mystring

                 --ifref ip

                 --ifdesc descr

                 --if-template D:\MRTG\bin\TrafficTmplate.txt


            -->MANY MORE ROUTERS<--

                 --global  "WorkDir:
D:\InetPub\MySite.com\County\Buildings\Courthouse \Switches"

                 --ifref descr 


            -->MANY MORE SWITCHES<--

                 --output D:\MRTG\bin\County_Traffic.cfg




Should I expect my syntax to create 2 directories, and place the graphs
in them both?
