    Add warning to extractors when extracting with debug extractors

    When client extractors are built in debug it can take many hours (over night usually) to extract mmaps.

    A warning should be added somewhere in the extractor .exe's when they are built in debug to make it clear.

    Are you sure you want to build mmaps? - This extractor is compiled in DEBUG mode.
    This will take 12+ hours - For quick extraction always use extractors built in release.[/QUOTE]

    I'm sure of the reason behind why this should take that much longer in debug.

    In the Build process there is a definition _DEBUG which indicates that it's a debug build

    The issue with trying to do something with movemaps extractor itself is that it is called multiple times by the build scripts
    - so it cannot keep track of its overall status beyond the current run

    Olion has mentioned about setting and using the errorcode to flag the error during the run
    - This combined with a -DEBUGOVERRIDE flag, might do the trick

    As I see it, the logic flow would be this..

    Are we in Debug Mode ?
    No... Carry on as normal
    Do we have -DEBUGOVERRIDE set ?
    Yes... Carry on as normal
    Do we have an Errorcode >0
    No... Generate the Debug warning message and then set Errorcode to be greater then 0 and and Exit
    Yes.... Exit

    Thoughts ?
