<tip type="ColdFusion">
Here is an quick way to make the original (unparsed) CFML source to a
ColdFusion template accessible. Put this code at the top of the file:

<cfparam name="url.source" default=0>
<cfif url.source>
<cfcontent file=#cgi.path_translated# type="text/plain">
</cfif>

If your file is http://somewhere.com/index.cfm you can view the CFML source
by going to http://somewhere.com/index.cfm?source=1

Note: if your server doesn't set #cgi.path_translated#, you'll have to put
in eg.
file="c:\real\path\to\file\index.cfm"
instead (but cgi.path_translated is nicer since you don't have to change it
for each file, and it the whole thing could be <cfinclude>'d).

Of course, if you don't want your code to be public, you had better not use
this tip!
