[sword-devel] InstallMgr questions...

Hi team, I have a couple of questions that aren't connected to the  
discussion from May in any way at all (/me hears a large collective  
sigh!)...  :)

Firstly, I was trying to get it to work and had issues where it uses a  
tmp file & so had to move the tmp file for it to work.  I have a  
suggested way that this could be done & have attached a couple of  
patches for ftplibftpt.cpp/h.  Hopefully they are ok?  If not, I can  
simply apply them whenever I check out a new version of sword...  ;)
[FYI, on the iPhone everything is sandboxed & an app doesn't even have  
read access to lots of the file system, let alone write, so instead of  
using the cwd I need to get the ftplib to use a location that is rw- 
able...  :)  ]

My other question is to do with user feedback.  I can't see any way of  
providing feedback for how an install is progressing?  What I'd love  
is some sort of % in order to provide feedback to the user of how far  
along we are through an install of a module, so they know it hasn't  
hung...  I'm not concerned if it's detailed or simple, but something  
would be nice...  :)
If there's something built-in & I've just failed to find it, please  
just point me in the right direction...  :)

thanks, ybic
	nic...  :)
