Subject [vfs] Next newbie Q - local cacheing of remote files (e.g. HTTP)
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2014 10:35:29 GMT
 From what I've read, I think that if I use say HTTP for file access, 
there's cacheing of files locally in a temp dir to avoid retrieving them 
on every reference?

That's pretty much exactly what I need. Just want to check I'm not 
misunderstanding this, and if there are any gotchas to be aware of

I'd assume that things like Last-Modified would be checked at some 
period, and new copies pulled down if changed?
