Downloading problems individually

Postby shikamaru598 on Fri Jul 10, 2009 10:30 am

Is it possible for you to make a feature for pro users so that if new problems are added to the site you don't have to re-download ALL the problems to get the newly added ones?

that's a good idea, but gets tricky as problems are continuously added and deleted, in any order. thanks for the idea.

Simple to do. Add a "last modified on" variable for each problem. By date, or even just by year and month, if you prefer to cut down on database size. Then, anyone can search for a list of problems modified in or since, say, june 2010. I don't think it will be tricky, just reset that date every time a problem has a material change (change in solution path, change in DI or DP or GE, and so forth).

I would be interested in this feature not so much for reducing the download size when updating your local copy, but rather to be able to play with individual problems off-line, and to print them e.g.

E.g. download SGF for a problem (with or without the variations).

Thanks,

Tom
