Neil> Haven't tried it but should work:
Thanks Neil. I downloaded it last night and played around a bit. What
follows is a description that will hopefully keep others from stepping in
the same booby traps I did.
It doesn't appear to work at this point, both based on attempts to use it
and hints on the above page. After some reading, I was able to pull the
latest version with
wget --exclude-directories=/~lele/projects/tailor/_darcs --mirror \
--no-parent --no-host-directories --cut-dirs=3 -e robots=off \
(The wget example at the top of the wiki page points to an older version.)
Unfortunately, it (like the older version) is missing
if __name__ == "__main__":
in tailor.py and has no call to its main() function anywhere in the source.
This seemed very odd to me, so I added one, as well as a #! line. I
eventually noticed that there is a vcpx package and in the directory above,
a number of other files, tailor, a bunch of index.html files and a README.
It was reminiscent of expanding a tar file in the bad old days (or unzipping
a zip file nowadays) before everbody got the idea that it would be a good
idea to create a top-level directory...
Anyway, I'm still struggling with it. If I get further I'll post my
results. If others have gotten further, tips would be appreciated.
