|Title:||Graphical Common Download Manager|
A download manager written using Reaction that accepts, on a port, requests for new downloads and is in charge of bringing them down from the network to a local file area (selected by the application, or from the default, by the user). It also manages bandwidth used in total up to a preference set limit, and can resume (if resume is supported). If not started when an application needs it, the application can start it but must check on startup to see if the message port is active.
|why starting it from wbstartup?
i'd imagine it to be just a library which is called by the requestor program. the manager only then starts. why start it in advance?
the caller has to know what to call in either way.
