Re: run command after time xx

Ah - when you say it I remember gpc() :roll:

These are different formats of XY-documentation:
Echo-command defines e explicit as an alias. (That's what I've searched for.)
gpc() is shown as a second form for getpathcomponent - but without describing/naming that an 'alias'.

Re: run command after time xx

At first I thought this is a typo :whistle:
Then I found e is an alias for command echo. :shock: Didn't know that! :oops:

And it seems it's the very only XY-command having an alias? Is that correct?

Re: "Game of Life" by John H. Conway

Sad to hear this!

I remember Game of Life very well - and used a lot of CPU power for this.
At a time where CPU power was not really cheap!

Re: +++ BREAKING NEWS: XY Switches Programming Language +++

Hey - after all these years a surprising decision. :shock:
But I think it's really the best to do! :appl: :appl: :tup:

Also surprising: you only expect ~6 months?
OK: I hope you can do it - but I'm a bit sceptical.
But even if it will take a bit longer: I think it's worth it.

Congratulations!

Re: ListManagementHouseCleaning

I'm not an expert in scripting, and this is air code, but I think it should work like this as well: Line 110 $LM_data = FormatList($LM_list_1, 'f', "<crlf>", "*|$sel_name*"); Line 153 $LM_data = FormatList($LM_list_2, 'f', "<crlf>", "*|$sel_name*"); Hey, optimizations? One more: <crlf> is a variabl...

Re: ListManagementHouseCleaning

I think there's an error in the change...

If I'm right the '|*' near the end of both statements should just be '*'

You could just try to change and test that.

Re: ListManagementHouseCleaning

Try un-checking "Syntax Checking" under the Scripting menu to see if you still get the error. The error won't come anymore then. But the cooler response would have been to correct the syntax. ;) :mrgreen: Thanks for this as a general statement. I was about to say the same. Though, of course, it wou...

Re: thumbnail database follow external drvie

Wouldn't that only work if each image files has a unique name? In that case we could completely skip the path information and just make one big database for all images no matter where they are. Sorry, but would you trust on system-wide unique names? I don't use it, but for me / for my system the an...

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

Dom't know what the script *exactly* does. So a bit of guessing...

If it works just like you said, after the first rename there are
John.psd (not touched yet), and
John.jpg (just renamed).
Both should hve a thumb, but with the same name (like John.thumb)? This would be a problem.

Re: Scripting Memory-Leak / Speed Degrading

One thing we had a long time ago: if, for example in al loop, you concatenate and concatenate data to a variable, this variable will become fragmented, and access to it might get slower and slower.
Don't know if this can be (part of) your problem.

You did read the documentation of help copy? At least the very first line?

Re: Different mousewheel scroll lines delta for each View (Details, List, Thumbs)

At least I'd think it's relative easy to scroll a page (or more) if a notch is one line, but try to scroll 1 line (or a few) if a notch is one page.

So both have it's usage, but one is more universal, I think.
