0001 kioexec is launched when the user wants to open a remote file with 0002 an application that only supports local files. 0003 0004 For this it does the following: 0005 - downloads a remote file to a temp location 0006 - starts a 'local' application with that temp file as argument 0007 - wait fors application to be exited 0008 - if the modification time of the file is different from the original one, 0009 (because the file was modified) then it offers re-uploading the modified version. 0010 This is how you offer network transparency to apps that don't have it. 0011 0012 BUT: with KUniqueApplication, this breaks, because the app returns at once, 0013 so we have no way to know when the user finished editing the file... 0014 0015 Conclusion: if the application has network transparency built-in, it should 0016 put "%u" in its desktop file - and kioexec isn't used -. If it doesn't, either 0017 it's a KApplication and kiiooexec does its job, or it's a KUniqueApplication 0018 and... kioexec can't see modifications to the file. Be warned. 0019 0020 From Waldo: "The program doesn't return _at once_. It returns 0021 after "newInstance()" returns. So if you open the file there it will still work. 0022 (Or rename it)" 0023 0024 David Faure <email@example.com> 0025 20-May-2000 0026
