Eureka! I tried setting a system variable in
Choices.Webjames.Attributes, on the DocumentRoot line and Webjames
happily served it. So in that attributes file I now have
and in the root directory of each of my sites I now have an obeyfile
called !!hey-Webjames (the plings to put it at the top) containing
set webjames-thissite$dir <obey$dir>
(your pathname might differ)
Put a copy of the identical obeyfile into the root of each site.
So when I want to point Webjames at a single specific local site,
simply doubleclick !!hey-Webjames in that site's root directory.
In Netsurf's URL bar type just "localhost" and Webjames serves it.
(Webjames doesn't seem to mind the apparently repeated filer_run line
when it has already been running for a previous site.)
