some thoughts about Jamal's message
That startmenu option is nice, but it doesn't work when pressing windows-e IT also doesn't work with executor an alternative to the windows run dialog, but that can I think be easily fixed within executor.An option in the FileDir program group of the Windows Start Menu causes FileDir to automatically be used when opening a directory from the Windows Start/Run prompt or equivalent. This also causes FileDir to be opened for zip archives.
that is at http://www.executor.dk anyone who likes Jamals program will like this one also.The send to text editer and word processor and the wildcard and text searching features in filedir are truly appreciated.
Do these copying functions work when using ctrl c or only with the filedir specific copy command.Copy and Move commands prompt whether to override an existing file, or whether to do so based on a date comparison. One also is informed whether files with the same names are different in size. One can tell FileDir to make the same decision for all subsequent files with the same names within the processing of a batch copy or move. The FTP Get, Web Download, and Unzip commands do not compare file names -- they just overwrite. I've thought of implementing the same comparison dialog, but it's quite a bit of coding and haven't gotten to it. Personally, I generally want the source files to overwrite the same targets in these situations. If this is a concern, I suggest transfering to a new folder, and then doing a copy or move to another folder that may include similar targets.
Would be cool if the user could define those options and not be prompted.
the Open Drive command, Alt+Shift+O, lists all drives in a standard listbox. Any command that presents the dialog to specify a directory includes a Browse button that invokes the standard Windows Browse for Folder dialog, which includes a treeview.
I really like that open drive command.The floppy drive doesnt even hold things up when empty like it does in a treeview.
Thanks for your hard work. I hope many users are using filedir. __________View the list's information and change your settings at //www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
