Hi All,

I heard somewhere that it should be possible to customize directory
listings in acme via some plumber rules. I'm hoping to append the contents
of a file if it exists in a particular directory below the listing.

I'm new to plumber and curious if this is possible. If so, where might I
look to learn more about how to put this together? If not, then I might
have a look at how to program this behaviour into my own copy of acme.

Thanks,
Chris

I don't believe that the kind of customization you want
can be done via the plumber.

I'd probably write my own "acme app" for this, similar
to acme mail, which I rewrote recently:

        http://git.9front.org/plan9front/plan9front/HEAD/sys/src/cmd/upas/Mail/f.html

(Feel free to steal win.c, which provides a reasonable
API for interacting with acme events)
