If your File holds text and is less than 64K, then Zope lets you
edit it in the management interface. A text file is one that has a
content-type that starts with *text/*, such as *text/html*, or
*text/plain*. You may sometimes find it convenient to edit text
files in the management interface. In any case, you can always
edit files locally and then upload them to Zope.

How can I access the content of the uploaded file (text/html) using python? I uploaded a file object using
<dtml-call expr="importArchive.manage_addFile(id='infile', file=file, content_type='text/plain')">
and want to parse the contents of infile to insert it into a database.

What if I want to edit a file of which I don't have a local copy? Must I download it locally, edit it an then
upload it back to the zope server every time?
