The Daisy Editing Browser uses a simple directory structure to hold the files on the local computer.
How the directories are used, is best illustrated with an example.
Consider editing files on the main Daisy Analysis web site, which has a domain name of www.daisy.co.uk.
The web site is mirrored in a directory on the local computer called the working or download directory.
By default, the program can set this to any of three preferred options :-
If your web site contains sub-directories, then any files copied from the web site, will be placed in a corresponding sub-directory.
Thus, in a simple example, the file, http://www.daisy.co.uk/Alchemy/index.html will be stored in C:\EBWork\daisycouk\Alchemy\index.html.
The cache directory is a second mirror of the web site, that is updated every time a file is uploaded to the web site.
This enabled FTP upload traffic to be reduced, if the file in the cache directory is checked first.
The directory follows the same rules to the working directory except that the identifying sub-directory is EBCache.
