in reply to Re^3: Hidden files in getOpenFile
in thread Hidden files in getOpenFile

Thanks for the advice

Sure there is no other way around it?

I was trying to avoid using FileDialog because its looks less clean as getOpenFile

But if it is the only option...

Thanks

    Yes. I've seen the documentation for getOpenFile/Tk::FBox, all that is left is sourcediving, and sourcediving is zero fun

    If you're not on windows, if your platform uses Tk::FBox, then sourcediving might be fruitful for you -- in any case I refuse to do that :) I hate Tk that much

      Hmpff , thanks for your advice! sourcediving it is..

[Corion]: Hmm. I think overnight I decided on simplifying some code. I have plugin classes that do data import (.csv, .yml, .json) and for that create objects on which then ->load() is called. But YAML::XS doesn't have an object, so I wrote my own wrapper.
[Corion]: This evening, I'll kill that wrapper again, and just call LoadFile() in the plugin class directly instead of creating a go-between object for no real gain.
[Corion]: Writing these import plugins was really nice though - in about 2 hours, I had imports for CSV, YAML and JSON, and adding XLS(X), SQLite (or DBI) data sources is also trivial. I'm idly wondering about separating the plugin into transport+parser, so ...
[Corion]: ... http:// URLs could be retrieved and then parsed, but I think that that would be overkill for a toy static site generator ;)
