in thread Uniquely identifying each & every html template

You are right. What i ask cannot be done.

so, i guess i have to decide if the identifier will be the "filepath" or the "hash" (based on file's contents)

Which method do you advise me to use?

    Which method do you advise me to use?

    Seems to me that file contents is likely to change far more often than filepath. And applications that edit contents tend to retain the same name for the edited file.

    Plus, even if you copied a file verbatim to a different path, they are no longer the same file as they are likely to be parts of different applications and/or websites. As such, the contents are likely to diverge over time as the separate apps/sites change.

    In short, I'd use the filepath.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
      Thank you for all your help you provided me! Let's just hope i can code this.

    Well, what about a version control system? SVN or git can track files as they are moved around, because you do not use the system's mv, but rather the VCS's variant of the same.

[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
