• Removing files

    From Tegularius@VERT to All on Tue Oct 4 02:04:00 2005
    The procedure for editing file descriptions and moving or removing files
    seems to be hard-coded. It is rather awkward and I would like to write my
    own procedures for doing this if possible, either in Baja or Javascript.
    Has anyone rolled their own? Can it be done?

    For one thing, I'd like to be able to edit extended descriptions as well as
    the short ones. That facility doesn't seem to be provided (unless I just haven't discovered it).

    Thanks for any pointers you can suggest.

    There is currently no facility for editing extended descriptions and the file database format is soon to change, so I wouldn't suggest writing up mods to do that at this time as they won't be useful in the near future.

    yeah, i've made a little toolkit for my sysop editing needs.
    i extract/edit the file_id.diz, recompress, create .diz files out of
    long file names, etc....

    you can do this by creating a baja, etc mod, and having this mod setup
    as the viewer for the filetype you want to mess with.
