You can set up a directory in the Plugins directory called EditorsX (or something unique) and into that add the extra modules -- including something you can call "Globals.pm" or "Utils.pm" and you would reference that from your templates as described.
I am quite interested in doing this, but I need help on how to make this transformation, if you don't mind.
Lets say I have a global right now, which I want to inlcude in my plugin. I now create a file called Globals.pm and include this into my tar package (wizard helps me do this, so no problem here).
- How do I put my existing global into Globals.pm? What should this file look like? just a bunch of subs? (Like what stuff should I put at the start of this file) Do globals have to be modified at all, once they are out of they standard links globals.txt and into my own file?
- How do I call a sub/global from my new Globals.pm file in a template or plugin module?
I appreciate your comments.
Gosh, every little thing I learn makes a big difference to my abilities with these plugins! You guys better watch out, I may just have this editor monitor thing working soon!!
