This is the include file for the directory handling modules for parsing and presenting directory listings - often in the form of a HTML document.

System dependencies

The wwwsys.h file includes system-specific include files and flags for I/O to network and disk. The only reason for this file is that the Internet world is more complicated than Posix and ANSI.

#include "wwwsys.h"

Directory listings

The directory manager generates directory listings for FTP and HTTP requests. This module contains the protocol independent code and it produces the HTML object. It is only included if either the FTP or the File module is included.

#include "HTDir.h"


No directory listings without icons! The WWWDir interface contains support for including references (URLs and ALT text tags) to icons in directory listings. The icons are selected as a function of the media type and the content encoding of the file in question. That is - you can set up icons for compressed files, postscript files etc. There is also a small set of specific icons representing directories etc.

Note: Icons are not set up by default! You must enable them yourself. The Library distribution contains a small set of default icons which you can find at $(datadir)/www-icons, and they can be set up using the HTIconInit() initialization function in the WWWInit startup interface

#include "HTIcons.h"

File Descriptions

Descriptions appearing in directory listings are produced by this module. This may be overridden by another module for those who which descriptions to come from somewhere else. It's only HTTP directory listings that contain a description field (if enabled by the Directory browsing module.

#include "HTDescpt.h"
