SLASH tags

Thanks for all the help with the upgrade, but I have another question. What's the syntax for the new SLASH tags? I've tried looking through the code, but alas, I'm not much of a perl programmer, and expirementing hasn't given me much help.

Upgrading

I just wanted to suggest that someone out there who's rather good with Slash write a How-To on Upgrading to the latest CVS, or upgrading to the latest release, or both! It'd sure help me out. (a simple how-to in the comments to this article would help a great deal as well!)

SSL and slashcode fulltime

Does anyone know if Slash works with SSL (not just for auth. but full time https)???? I need this and I'm not sure where to go from here. Current setup: Linux 8.0 / apache 1.3 / latest slash. (works very well). Some links and instructions would greatly be appreciated. thanks, -Kam.

Storing Variable Calues

Another questions about template editing, but more specifically about grabbing everything in an existing site that you've optimized and converting that information into something you can use in a theme.

I've asked questions previously about templates and boxes (thanks to lottadot and tf23 (175) ), but now I'd be interested to find out if I can grab things like site variables and menu alterations and stuff like that from the database, and put them in a form that is convenient to install in a new site. My guess is that it'll be in the form of some sql queries that need to be run on initial installation (in the sql_prep and _dump files in the theme)?

Can anyone help me out? Is there an easy way to do it? If there isn't, why hasn't this been implemented?
