Another thread about kind of Database :-)
For a specific project, I need to implement this:
I have an arbitrary set of text files stored on the disk in an
arbitrary numbers of directories, within a root one, ie:
When it comes to deliver the project,
I want to import all theses files,
and the tree organization
inside a stack ( datas only stack ).
I'm thinking of mapping each directory
to a group; the first group would be named dirRoot,
dir2 and dir4 would become groups named dir2 and dir4,
children of the first group,
dir3 a group inside dir2 group, etc...
and for the files, importing them in custom properties
of these groups with the same name as the original files.
Let say it could be a hundred files or even more....
One extreme could be one group with a hundred properties,
another one a hundred nested groups with one property for each group.
Do you think this is realistic to do so,
and what kind of pitfalls i can find on the way ?
Another solution could be to create as many text fields as files,
with each field named with the full path of the corresponding
Any hints or thoughts are welcome, before I jump into it.
