Well, as far as I can see with your emails,
it seems you're full alive :-)
Thanks for all your remarks.
Mmmmm, without explaining all the project,
I can give some rules which can be seen as formal facts:
- No database engine wanted !
- No databases needed for this tree files.... It's only a tree !
These files are Text and only Text ,
and they are read only once,
but don't know when and in which order.
- From the user's point of view, it will makes no
differences at all ( even fully invisible ) that the file is read
from the disk
or from whatever revolution's container where the text will be
- Revolution will be absolutely ignorant about the meaning of these
- If all the files to be imported in a stack are too big,
they can be compressed as an option.
- must work on Mac/Windows/Linux boxes
Here is the context of my question about transforming a tree of files.
By now, I will try to do this with custompropertysets,
and see what happens.....
