and the error is my brain's linguistics service was turned off. I didn't read the "in" before quotes. :oops:

ed: oh wait, I had a note on this http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic. ... 71#p111129, and I was recently using a lot of early versions (with chms that still have that typo), I got confused. :oops: :oops:
sorry for the troubles...

the help for ceil() is wrong. It says ceil() "rounds fractions up". But this makes ceil() == round() and ::echo ceil(67.7).'|'.ceil(67.1); should return 68|67
it should instead say something along the lines of

Code: Select all

ceil([number])
returns the smallest integer that is not less than [number].

Maybe "rounds fractions up" is wrong English. What I mean is "round up" (upwards).

Code: Select all

::echo ceil(67.7).'|'.ceil(67.1);
should definitely return 68|68.

It's not really an error but it would sure be nice if the Features page had some named anchors to make it easier to link people to specific rows/features.

It would even be okay if these anchors were not visible and required viewing the source to find.

Good idea, easy to do, done.

For simplicity, I simply took the feature captions as anchors, it seems to work, e.g.:
http://www.xyplorer.com/features.php#Find Files, File Search

OK, the forum software cannot handle a URL with blanks, so:
http://www.xyplorer.com/features.php#Fi ... e%20Search

more than my fair share of links with literal ™ in them! :titter:

While you're trekking thru all the html, maybe replace links to screenshots with a simple onpage popup?

Fantastic!

For those familiar with Greasemonkey and browser userscripts:
https://github.com/TheQwerty/Misc-UserS ... user.js#L1
Select Raw and Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey should offer to install - afterwards your feature page should have clickable anchors for copying. ;)
