Thanks for the response, but unfortunately the cachedURLs deal only with the
data loaded through Transcript. RevBrowwser is quite unconnected to this,
being an external wrapped around (in the case of Mac) the webkit framework.
RevBrowser caches pages, swfs etc; and this cache persists between launches of
the app. It must be stored somewhere on disk, but I can't now locate where.
When webkit is wrapped in a application, such as Safari, the application
provides a user interface that invokes hooks to empty the cache; but the Rev
external that wraps webkit to make revBrowser provides no way to access this
functionality; so I'm trying to figure out where the cache is stored, so I can
trash it manually. (Safari itself is no help - it's wrapped around its own
instance of webkit, and is unconnected.)
Does anyone know where the cache is located?
