I'm looking at Forrest to see if it can serve my
task of disseminating technical information on our products (manuals, documents,
software) to our (technical) customers. We will create sites
to upload to the web, as well as copying to CD-ROMs. So far I can
see ways of achieving most of what we want. Thanks and well done!
An unresolved problem is how to give our users
access to files - perhaps hundreds of files in dozens of directories (in a tree
Providing a link to a small numbers of files from
within an XML/HTML page is OK, and we can place the whole directory
structure on a CD-ROM (as well as the web) and tell our CD-ROM users where to
browse to on their PC.
What I now need is some efficient method of getting
web-based users to navigate and download individual files or whole directories.
One thought is to zip up files and directories, and
give web-based users links to the zip files. Is there a way of getting Forrest
to automate the zip process?
