for the Gambas-Buch we noticed that HTML-linked(/included) files like
directory if one wants to use the embedded server for debugging. If the
linked files are located in any other project sub-directory (i.e.
.hidden) they are not found. As a result, all files will end up in the
compiled executable and hence are not changeable or replaceable.
Normally Gambas projects can use the .hidden directory to exclude files
from the compiled executable, but this option is not available in
conjunction with the embedded server. Even large movies will have to be
included in the executable.
This limitation doesn't apply if an external server is used, but this
requires the installation of a server on the development platform or a
separate platform with SSH access.
Question: Why does this bothersome limitation exist, resp. can it be
eliminated or is there a trick to include/ link files, if they are in
