Subject Copy task and url as value to the file attribute
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2001 23:52:02 GMT


The Get task is very similar to the Copy task.  Its
primary difference is it uses a URL as its source.
Wouldn't it make sense to put this functionality into
the Copy task itself such that Copy recognizes file
attributes that contain URL strings?  This way, we
could apply filters, etc. on the file being fetched over
the network as well.

Your thoughts?
