Swapping *.map and descr.wd3 file locaions

10/03/2006 04:59 pm
I tend to use OE more for collecting content than downloading full sites. Once downloaded I usualy move the content off to my own directory structures.
Often, accessing the files sometime later it would be handy to have a record of where they came from.
OEPRO generates *.map files which are human readable, and a useful record of the download, but it stores these in it's own data directory. The descr.wd3 files which are stored with the downloaded files are not human readable, and are pretty useless once the download is complete. as far as I can tell OE uses these to check for existing files in the directory. (I spend much time deleting them all).

How about putting the MAP files in the download directory and the descr.wd3 files in the program data directory??

Just a suggestion

We plan to make MAP files moveable, but it will take some time, because they are used in the whole program in numerous locations and it will be hard to do that change. Descr.wd3 files are bound to the directory where they are located and they contain the information used to update files from Web sites and their MIME types. So, it is commonly safe to remove them when you move the downloaded sites to another directory.
