Just wondering if the 'DownloadManager' recipe has been marked 
"abandoned" or if someone has picked up support for this recipe?

I have emailed the owner two times in the last month and a half with no 
response. That recipe could not be that difficult to maintain. I would 
shoot the error and maintain it but I am a Java programmer just trying 
to absorb PHP as fast as I can.

One question I have about debugging recipes. Is it possible that I could 
use a PHP IDE that has an interactive debugger to step thru the recipe. 
I have not sat down and tried to do that yet. I currently use Eclipse 
PHP, PHPEdit and PHP Designer products.

Thanks in Advance...
