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

Yes, XY is created on the dead language, but this is what I like about it. See Vim, Emacs, Unix utils, Windows command prompt. All this software is very old, sometimes isn't very easy to use, and have some limitations. However, this software have great advantage: it just works. It worked 20 years a...

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

It's 250,000 lines of code. But you know, I hired a company to do what can be done in an automated way. Otherwise it would not be possible. My work will start where the machines fall short. Still no walk in the park, but possible. Reminds me of the utter fiasco at the company I was working for as a...

Re: Multi-column sort does not work

Then I'm absolutely clueless as to why the milli- and nano-seconds were zero and the seconds were different.

Re: Multi-column sort does not work

OK, I goofed.

However, in that case I wonder why, if using only hh:mm times, setting the time in the properties panel does not set the seconds and milliseconds to 00.000000, which is what every (or at least this) sensible person would expect?

Yes, that's what I have. And that doesn't explain it. See the attached .GIF:

Re: Multi-column sort does not work

Reduced to the minimum, 7 files. Extract the RAR file with a "-tsm -tsc -tsa" to restore all timestamps.

Re: Multi-column sort does not work

Then why, in the .GIF I posted, ends the "on-the-road.jpg" between the various "imageNN.jpg" files, when all the timestamps (primary sort key) for all files are the same?

Multi-column sort does not work

Sort on timestamp (primary) followed by name. See the attached.

Re: Display meta data for .FLAC files

Excuse me, but why should a file manager depend on the absence (or not) of codecs?

If it does, it's not a stand-alone portable application!

And for what it's worth, all of the telemetry "updates" of W7 have not been installed.

Re: Display meta data for .FLAC files

(Of course) It's Win 7, no 15 GB keyloggers masking as OS for me. Playing everything via VLC.

Re: Display meta data for .FLAC files

No meta-data for FLAC files...

So please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

For what it's worth, I'm running the latest version of XY (as always)

Re: macOS-like truncation of filenames

Funny, this is what PL/I on z/OS has been doing, for about a zillion years, with names that are too long for the limit (7 chars) on external names: CSECTCUT(n) The CSECTCUT option controls how the compiler, when processing the CSECT option, handles long names. The CSECTCUT option has no effect unles...
