Announcing fileio V1.0
Announcing fileio, a file I/O patch version 1.0 for the LambdaMOO
>From the README:
This patch adds several administrator-only builtins for manipulating
files from inside the MOO. Security is enforced by making these
builtins executable with wizard permissions only as well as allowing
access only to a directory under the current directory (the one the
server is running in).
Files are manipulated using a stdio-like streams metaphor. Opening a
file returns a filehandle which is then used as an argument to reading
and writing functions. In addition to I/O functions, functions for
manipulating the files and directories are also included.
File access is restricted to a subdirectory of the current directory
(of the directory the server is running in) called "files" (this can
be changed by modifying a #define).
The patch is available at http://www2.mars.org/~fox/fileio/.
