Re: Windows Explorer Libraries request [2020]

I dislike this kind of machine smartness. My ideal tool is fast and reliable, for the smartness I care myself. :) Strange answer. This is not some machine smartness, this is one form of organization of files and folders. And you don't want it. But that's ok - and I could live years without it. (Tho...

Re: Windows Explorer Libraries request [2020]

Many years ago I had looked a bit at Win Libraries, but seeing that XY won't support them... So, as much as I remember: - a Library is kind of a virtual folder, created from the "addition" of the contents of real folders. - as much as I remember: if one file occurs multiple, the version from the fir...

Re: Please add an "Apply" button to Configuration modal.

As I understand it, Apply isn't usually to allow cancel, but to continue changing without need to recall the change-dialog.
I.e. you change, Apply, have a look, and if neccessary continue to change - until you feel it's ok.

It seems to me fizzybiz meant the same.

Re: Rename directory should tweakable set Archive attribute on *ALL* contained files

I have pretty complicated command files written in REXX that do rather a lot more than just XCOPY. That was a blast from the past for me - I used to do a bit of REXX programming back in my IBM mainframe days some 15+ years ago. I didn't even know it was used on other platforms as well. For Windows ...

Do you know any other software that does this job (set archive bit on folder rename)?
No, XY is the first, ahead of all the competition, as usual! ;)
And, just to say, I think it's good this way :tup:

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?

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...
