iRev - Ajax - jQuery

On-Rev allows both irev and cgi to work on the same web page or web  
query.
Mix and match depending on your combined environment.

For pure irev scripts, you could use either text files or sql.
In that case, you might want to factor another level or two to make  
coding simpler.

---- the following is probably more than you want to
         know at this moment
         so ignore it if you wish
Now we are a short distance from the power of
multidimensional arrays stored as a single text file,
then use arrayDecode(allTemplates.txt)

The irev script can call multiple Rev cgi (or PHP cgi) scripts that  
reside on any server.

I am building a stack to run as cgi where each card has a web page  
format template that includes HTML, CSS, javascript, php, and jquery.   
Beyond that, it will also build a usage database for tracking a multi- 
site network of pages.  Each card has its own custom properties, does  
not need a forest of text files, and parsing is all done inside Rev  
code.
--- end of advanced ideas

PS  I own but don't use Rapidweaver & Dreamweaver as they mostly  
create more anomalies and head scratching than they solve.

I do most all of my work in BBEdit (just like TextWrangler, same  
author), and use a very valuable tool - Firebug in FireFox

To do the On-Rev desktop backup, build a little scanner app that  
archives the most recent file in the local folder, if it has changed  
since the last backup one minute ago.

Have a good New Year's Eve !!
