Re: Lightweight file viewer?

are you saying that you want to be able to open the file first as
read-only and then click some button to allow the program to change to
read/write mode? I would think that no one would design a program do to
that. But with free software some COULD. I would think of using two
programs: one for viewing and one for editing. How about every document
is CVS'd so you can get back the old version. or how about a WIKI site.
All can read it. And some versions have passwd protected editing.
Just my 2 yen.
