TWikiScripts has this documentation:

For historical reasons, the view script has a special interpretation of the text skin. In earlier TWiki versions the skin=text parameter was used like this: http://.../view/MyWeb/MyTopic?skin=text&contenttype=text/plain&raw=on which shows the topic as plain text; useful for those who want to download plain text for the topic. Using skin=text this way is DEPRECATED, use raw=text instead.

The view?raw=text only covers the raw=debug functionality. The raw=on functionality is missing, it returns the raw text as seen in edit mode, e.g. without meta data. The skin=text&contenttype=text/plain&raw=on can be retired in the future, but another command with same functionality should be provided. Not sure what a good parameter value is, possibly view?raw=edit.

Are you seeing a bug with raw=on? It works fine for me, and is documented in the parameters to the view script.



May be I did not express myself clearly. We need two different "raw views", one returning text with meta data (same as file; implemented with raw=text), and one without (same as when editing a topic; missing implementation). Both as plain text, without a textarea.

To get a feel for the degree of confusion in Cairo around this issue see http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/Item450. You are right, and Item1212 was an error, so I reverted it. raw=text was always intended to return the text field of the topic. What I really needed to do was add raw=all to show metadata as well. Though it escapes me why anyone would want to view raw=text (new definition)
