I do only a few links, and for the others file people ask them _using the
full path_ (well, relative to the freq directory).
Eg: they freq "/pub/Linux/games/xtetris.tar.gz".
That works ok.

ifcico already does that. Look at filelist.c :

if (strcmp(q=copy+strlen(copy)-strlen(".tar.gz"),".tar.gz") == 0)

(maybe you want to add more translations)


A bientôt, Pablo Saratxaga
