This is the third public release of our ExternalFile <http://www.zope.org/Members/arielpartners/ExternalFile> product. Why not simply use ExtFile <http://www.zope.org/Members/MacGregor/ExtFile>? Because ExternalFile supports pointing to a file "in situ" like a symbolic link, rather than copying it into some central repository directory.
This may not seem like a big deal, until you consider that those files might be stored in a revision control system like CVS. ExternalFile gives you the ability to create a Zope object that points to a file in, for example, a CVS sandbox for its content. This new release is compatible with CVSFile-0-7. It also features "workalike" capabilities. ExternalFile can behave like any of the following: * DTMLDocument * DTMLMethod * Image ExternalFile is usable by itself. It is also the base class for CVSFile <http://www.zope.org/Members/arielpartners/CVSFile>. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
