I'm using PCGen to help me make this character, so I'm unsure if it's correct or not.

Spellslingers get no cantrips, but get detect magic and read magic as level 1 spells at character creation. I'm not sure if these spells count towards the maximum level 1 spells (which PCgen seems to think), or replaces cantrips but doesn't effect known level 1 spells, IE, can I learn 8 spells at character creation (3+5) or just 6?

...the spellslinger gains the detect magic and read magic cantrips and places them in his spellbook. He can cast either of these as 1st-level spells.

I would assume he gains those two "for free", meaning you can place 8 other spells in the spellbook as normal. However, since you cast them "as 1st-level spells" this means you have to prepare them ahead of time, like normal 1st-level spells.
