You probably don't want to use FV_View at all.
Instead, you'll want to create an exporter subclass
(IE_Exp), and an importer subclass if you want to
re-import these files.
Filetypes (ieft) are just integer numbers. They are
assigned to IE_Imp and IE_Exp classes when those
classes register themselves. They are usually used
IEFileType ieft = IE_Exp::fileTypeForSuffix(".txt");
IEFileType ieft = IE_Imp::fileTypeForContents(buffer,
The special case is:
(IEFileType)-1 == "unknown file type"
I have quite a bit of experience with the Imp/Exp
architecture as well as AbiWord plugins. If you have
questions or want help, email me or stop bye
