For this month's function of the day, Patrick Briggs will be taking a look at a family of custom functions used to set the various cURL options for the Insert From URL script step.


For the main portion of the meeting, Dave Ramsey will present a session on indirection. Explaining what indirection is, how it is commonly found in FileMaker, and the tools and techniques that can be used in order to remove indirection and protect your custom app. Dave is the author of the popular FMPerception utility, which recently added the ability to search for indirection.
