  I vaguely remember you complaining about delegate procedures used in AosIO.Writer/Reader-s. If this is the case, and the AosIO functionality is critical for WebDAV I'm willing to help with an OberonIO.Mod. But if you can just use plain files for internalizing/externalizing the XML stuff, I have just copied the XML*.Mod files from last BB release to an NO partition and after a little tweaking (using Files instead of AosFS, and Files.Rider instead of AosIO.Writer/Reader) the following files



are willing (;-) to compile. Whether they work is still to be seen...

  Well I have commented out the ElementEntry and ElementRegistry stuff in the XML.Mod, as being too BB specific.

Regards, Vasile

PS. I have recently install the JBuilder v9 on a Celeron/300Mz, and I'm still kind of running away from it. I guess I will rather support NO even if it is doomed to decay and fall.
