Subject Re: Directory readonly implementation in a ZIP file via HTTP [FILE]
Date Mon, 13 Jan 2003 16:09:37 GMT
I'm interested in building an index and embedding it on a CD-ROM and 
having an applet search the index.  No HTTP involved.  Lukus, would 
your work enable that use?  If so, I'm very pleased!

If not, are others doing this type of thing by embedding an index on a 
CD and using it from an applet?
