The figures seem to have the same length - but in real the bigger values have one "digit" more. So, having my glasses on, I must admit: it's not only useless. (Though I don't like it :roll: )

Re: Odds in Drives List

I remember I didn't really like it when made, and don't understand it now.

You say the logarithmic repr. of 64GB, 51TB and 12TB should be identical?
Even if it's relative to the given dimension, 64 and 12 should be same?

Seems I miss something.

Hearing User-defined Action I just think of a scipt. I think it misses that it's a reaction to something, or am I wrong?

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 ...

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!
