Developer's Corner / What's the Best Programming Language For...
« on: January 27, 2009, 08:17 AM »
Hi guys.

I know nothing about programming.  It's something I've always wanted to get into & at the moment I have 2 areas of interest.

For fun I'd like to get into modifying Windows, particularly Explorer.  Sort of like QTTabBar:
I notice that this application requires the .NET Framework.  I'm not sure if that is a language itself.

But for a higher priority serious endeavour I'd like to create a website similar to eBay in a lot of ways.  But I don't know anything about webdesign.  I don't even have a blog!

It's getting the ball rolling that is usually the hard part for me.  I'd appreciate any kicks in the right direction.

Thanks for looking.

I use SuperCopier:

I did lose data a few times moving files on a network though.  Now that I've personalised the settings I don't seem to have that problem anymore.  If you are copying not moving then I can recommend it.

I haven't looked at the Robocopy GUI:

I know someone complained about this earlier.
There's a better solution than what you're thinking. Here on DC, someone made a program that unzips stuff always to the top directory, thus, it never creates the subdirectory you mentioned (even if it exists in the rar) ;).
Unfortunatelly, after a quick search, I wasn't able to find this program. But I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about and will get you a nice link :)
I can't live without it.

Similar results for people too lazy for AHK (like me) can be achieved using QTTabBar, if I remember correctly, and even more advanced with Pitaschio, where pressing F2 cycles between filename, extension and full filename with extension. The latter also works in open/save dialogs.
QTTabBar also allows you to cycle your selection with F2.

Hey wr975.  I think I've uncovered a bit more of the problems now.

When I extracted 2 password archives I got the Smart Unpack error message for each.
When I extracted in the order of 1 regular archive then 1 password archive then 1 regular archive the password archive was deleted & an empty folder created.

The foreign character bug doesn't occur unless Smart Unpack creates a folder with the relevant characters.

The archives I have are hundreds of MBs each.  Maybe they were created on a native Asian version of Windows?  I can't create archives with foreign characters either but you can rename with foreign characters after their creation so try copying the exact characters from my previous post.

Thanx for continuing the development of this.  I don't think anyone who uses it could revert to not using it.

1 other thing:  I find the GUI gets in the way when it is busy because you can't move it.  Is it possible to change this?  It would be preferrable to be able to minimise it to the system tray.

I had a quick test of the multiple instance prevention & noticed no difference in behavior.  I'll keep an eye on it & let you know how I go.

PS  The new icon for the exe is a nice touch.
