Feature Proposal: The plugin workarea is great but...


... there is no way to "keep their areas tidy."

Description and Documentation

Add 3 functions: ReadWorkareaFile, WriteWorkareaFile, and DeleteWorkareaFile.

The first two are trivial. The third is necessary to keep the workarea tidy but is also necessarily limited to the workarea for security reasons.

Func::getWorkArea( $pluginName ) -> $directorypath returns what's needed to use it in perl (whether as plain, simple =open=s, or a File object (CPAN:FileHandle), CPAN:IO:File, or any other method for file I/O).

The functions TWiki::Func::readFile() and TWiki::Func::saveFile() are meant to be used for that.

A TWiki::Func::deleteFile() does not exist yet, is a useful addition.
