The plugins page at JPSoft has many links that point directly to sources of plugins, including some of yours, Charles D. Since you have such a nice page of your own (prospero.unm.edu/plugins/) it would seem appropriate that JPSoft have a link to it. I imagine Rex would add a link if you asked nicely.

@CharlesD - any chance you could add a FTP file that would have a line for each plugin, comma separated, and would have the plugin version, date of plugin on ftp site, and some SHA or CRC to validate a download?

There's a file version.txt that should give you most of that. Despite the filename, it's structured as an .INI file; if you download it, you can parse it with @INIREAD.

@CharlesD - good format for version.txt; However if I can make a useful suggestion please. Have a [Main] section that would also have NumItems= number of plugins, then from 0-NumItems= each plugin listed below, already.

that way if you add a plugin - it would be very easy to parse the TXT and download a copy.....

The Other C..... (LOL)

@CharlesD - Another useful thing might be to add to the [Main] section a MostRecentUpoload=YYYYMMDDHHMMSS that would be the date/time string of the most recent plugin upload, so the user could check that and maybe not need to check the other date/time fields for the plugins
