Description Steve Conklin 2006-12-14 13:11:10 EST
This feature would provide an API to plugin writers that output to a file that
gets linked from the html report. The file object created should be accessible
from the plugin.

Please elaborate on this RFE.

Comment 3 Steve Conklin 2008-03-19 11:22:24 EDT
There's alreasy an API that allows execution of a shell command (for example)
and places all output in a file that gets linked into the final report.

This request was for a way to allow the code in a plugin that generates output
to have the output from that plugin appear in a file linked in the report. So,
for one implementation, the plugin could make a call to the API and get back a
file object, then write to that. sos would set up the file behind that, and when
the plugin is done, the output gets included in the final report.

I hope that's clearer, My original descrption was terrible.
