WinQFile and QFile available

Post by Akhilesh Mritunjai » Sun Sep 22, 2002 2:24 pm

Hello everybody

First release versions of WinQFile and QFile are available. This is a stable
beta (oxymoron?) version. Don't ask me what "stable beta" means... probably
it is stable cuz it didn't crash or misbehave once, and its beta 'cuz it may
be too early to call it v1.0 :-) ).

WinQFile is a GUI application that lets you access your QNX partitions/files
and
files in it.
QFile is Command line equivalent... suitable for remote/scripting (work in
progress on scripting support and QFS file access).

Both applications use read-only access for maximum safety.

Do let me know of your suggestions/feature-requests/bug-reports at
mritun#me,iitb,ac,in (Please replace # by @ and , by .).
There is room for lot of improvements in usability, but these two are best
what I can make over a weekend.

only by individuals. Please see "About" box and ZIP file comments for
details.

Good work-was thinking about how nice would be just the other day...

That said, it crashed on my windows 2k box.
It picked up the QNX4 parition ok, but clicking on a directory
on the left started furious disk activity that wouldn't stop
until the machine was reset. Coul'dn't kill the app either
(using the tak manager).

Hi Mike
Good work ! :-) But why when click on to close button 'X' at caption it
shows me about dialog ? :-)
I swear... I am innocent :) VC++ is very newbie unfriendly... it was crazy
Anyway, wyou can download the new version from
www.qnxzone.com/~mritun/WinQFile.zip

Fixes:
1. Pressing 'x' brings up About box (fixed)
2. When selecting other disk in top combo, the partition list didn't update
(fixed).

Enjoy :)

Hi Alex

Can you send me the text in debug window ?
And are you sure that fs was clean ?

In NC version, there is no checking or workarounds for unclean filesystems.
This feature (and many more) will be present in commercial version.

Hi everybody

Update:

1) Bugfix version of WinQFile (GUI Version) is available.
Fixes:
1) Pressing cross button displays About dialog instead of closing
window. (FIXED)
Reason: I am an innocent VC newbie :) Blame VC for crosstalk. I
haven't yet understood
how it managed to screw the message maps.

2) Partition list is not updated after selecting another disk in
combo. (FIXED)
Reason: My fault :-) Didn't wrote code for that.

3) Files with more than one extent are not copied correctly. (FIXED)
Reason: My fault :) Copied code from directory scanning function
and forgot to edit.

The debug window has been made more verbose to help debugging.
2) Bugfix version of command line version QFile *won't* be available for
public download. Email me if you are interested.


Thanks

PS. I was surprized over the 'fact' that most files fit in a single extent.
This was the reason that the bug (3) went unnoticed for so long.
