Some things from the 19.20 PDF if you are interested, on page 534
The value is never reset within the running session, so you get retrieve it even hours after the
On page 390
By the way, adding the separator ">" after the pattern is optional and makes not difference.
On page 219
Paths can be quoted (useful of path contains ";").
On page 218
This is a Branch View excluding the contents of certain paths (all versions are equivalent):
E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret /flat
E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret /flat
E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret /flat
All 3 listed entries are equivalent... but also identical? do they need listing 3 times ?

Great, thanks!

FYI, it should have been this:

Code: Select all

E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret /flat
E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret :flat
E:\Test\b\Pluto? /excl=Private;Secret:flat

A couple of very minor things I noticed from the 19.40 PDF, on page 212, just a double opening parenthesis
((Windows New Line CR+LF)
On page 445, under the Numbered Arguments heading, just before Concatenation heading it has written:
This little script will rename all currently selected items by appending the current date.
but no accompanying example script, instead it is just an empty yellow backgrounded box.

Not really a bug, but I'd say, to avoid misunderstandings with unary + and - in documentation of Operator Precedence, you should add the word Unary in front of the operators + -, i.e.
Unary + - <tab> Math: Unary Plus, Unary Minus

Well, okay, I did it like this now:

Code: Select all

+ -           Math: Unary Plus, Unary Minus (operator is prefixed to a number)

I see the problem that when just looking to the Operators column, you see + and - and expect you know what's meant. (Everybody knows + and -!) Only a look for Additional Information brings you to understand, that not + -, but "Unary + -" is meant.
I think this basic info belongs to the Operator column, to make it's info unique. "Additional Info" should be just additional explanation, and not be neccessary to interpret the meaning of the operators.

Sorry - just my interpretation.

Yes, but the Operators column should only show the operator, nothing else.

I think the risks are manageable now. :)

OK: different opinions here.

I'd prefer uniqueness (in this column).

@Filehero: zip_list2 is correct, zip_list is deprecated now but kept for backwards compatibility, the 2 version has additional parameters.
