I have finished the script addition for editing the config.pl and hosts. It
works great and looks reasonably good. I have created a diff against 2.0.2
and included it and included the full script. Please test and let me know
if there are any bugs. Also, please let me know if there are any glaring
omissions in the functionality?
The next step is to organize the interface more like Jason's config
interface (it looks "neat") and add a better popup help. Right now I am
using alert boxes for help but I really need to add an action_Help sub and
put the help there - then I can do a proper window.open call. Time is
preventing me from doing that right now.
I also need to add Lang entries for the text labels so it will do
I will get to those as soon as I can.
I would like to know how I should handle displaying the multiline parameters
in config.pl. Right now I am putting each parameter into a textbox but to
save space, I made the boxes only 2 lines so there are scroll arrows on the
array parameters text boxes. Not a big deal but worth looking into. I
think I should be able to define the size of the text box based on the
number of lines in the parameter. How would it look to have different sized
text boxes based on whether the parameter is single or multi line? Maybe I
could put the single line parameters on the left side of the page and the
multiline ones on the right?
Anyway, I really would like some feedback on this so I can make decisions on
how it should look and get it ready for "Prime Time".
BTW. I am a CVS beginner and would like to apply this stuff to CVS but
don't know where to start beyond installing a CVS client and connecting to
the server. I can read files but have never uploaded properly. Can someone
give me a quick overview or point me to a web page with instructions on how
to upload to the Sourceforge CVS tree and behave myself so no-one gets
