Re: [Zope] LocalFS question

2000-12-12 Thread Andy McKay

They are real objects, just in a different sense. The easiest way to figure
it out is too look at the dtml that comes in the LocalFS source. For example
to get a listing of LocalFS folder instead of:

objectIds() try fileItems()

Subject: [Zope] LocalFS question



How do you access an individual object in a LocalFS? By that, I mean:

If I wanted the last_mod time of any Zope object, I could say dtml-var
"object.subobject.bobobase_modification_time".
However, if you try to do the same thing with a LocalFS object, i.e.
dtml-var "localfs_object.localfs_subobject.bobobase_modification_time",
you get the error NameError: localfs_subobject
This leads me to believe that LocalFS subobjects are not really objects. But
then how does the Zope management interface deal with them, and how can I?

They are real objects but they behave differently from the standard
Zope objects.

You can use
   dtml-with "localfs_object['localfs_subobject']"
 dtml-var bobobase_modification_time
   /dtml-with

At least the "Local File System" object does not expose
its children via "getattr" (which is required for the
usual "." operator to work) but only via "[...]".

This probably is a bug.

No this is by design, as explained in the how-to. Most operating systems allow
period (.) characters in filenames, so how would the dtml expression
"LocalFS.some.dir.some.file.plus.extension" be translated to a file system path?
