I am creating a small header file for students that they need to include in the preamble of their document. The changes are minor enough to not need a class file.
However, I do not want them to accidentally change it, and also, terms of copyright of some stuff in the preamble are such that they should not be able to access it from off-campus (rules set up by beancounters).
Is it possible to write something like:
and have it work?
The private URL is accessible from only inside the University, and yes, while students can easily browse to the preamble file and download it while on campus, this solution is good enough for the beancounters.
This has the added flexibility of letting me influence the format of the reports without forcing the kids to download new versions etc.
Bonus question: can we do something like this for class files?
