Thanks for your help. I will try this and let you know if it works.

if you want to create an html file on the file system (which is a rendered version of a dtml method), you could use something like wget (http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html). Give wget the url to the dtml method and it will create an html file on the filesystem (which you can then access via your php routines). You could even create an external method which invokes wget - you could then call this external method from the same routine which creates/modifies your dtml method, so that the html file on the file system stays in sync with the dtml method.

Subject: Re: [Zope] Saving a Rendered DTML Document


Hello. The PHP script that I use relies on a path to locate the HTML file on the file system and since the DTML document is a Zope object, it does not have access to that. I also tried using a Zope File object as well as a DTML document that is part of a Local File System. Using a Zope File object does not work since the ouput of a rendered DTML document is text and providing the PHP script a Zope File filled with plain text does not work. The same goes for a DTML document that is part of a Local File System, once the document is rendered it is plain text.

Hello. I have a DTML document which contains some DTML, but mostly HTML. I want to save the HTML contents of this DTML document once it is rendered by Zope (i.e. once the DTML is evaluated) in another DTML document (i.e. this document will only contain HTML offcourse and must be since it will be used by a PHP script). Is there a way to do this so every time the former changes, the latter is updated as well? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

How does the PHP read the file? Why can't PHP read the file through the web, where it will be rendered.

Ps. ZPT is a replacement for DTML, and is no help with your problem.
