Is there a way to automatically load up a data store (a datamodel table) with information when it is created? I require a country-selection field and figured it would be good idea to put it into a separate module for reuse. The countries would be stored in the database, and so it would be ideal for the table to be pre-populated as soon as the module is installed.
The country data will be in XML files initially, to make it easier to handle international characters.
Unless, of course, such a module already exists?
Edit: of course, an ideal module would contain an arbitrary number of nested and linked regions of any arbitrary type, for use in different ways. For example, to be able to define the UK, its countries, then its regions, then its counties (of which there are several sets, depending on how you define "county"), and its postal code areas (overlapping and not fully enclosed within counties) etc. would be tremendously useful. That would also link to GIS outline shapes, yet another level of usefulness. That is probably a step further than I need to go now, especially being a newbie to SS.
