Memory consumption with XAD and CopyFile

When extracting with the XAD plugin and the CopyFile function, it seems to cache the whole file in RAM before actually writing it to the destination filesystem. This doesn't seem to happen with the same conditions with the Zip plugin (although it has its own issues). You run out of memory very quick...

CopyFile with Zip is horribly slow

When I try to extract bigger files with the Zip plugin and CopyFile, extracting gets slower and slower when the extracted file is bigger. The furter it advances, the slower it gets... the first 10 megabytes may get quickly enough that you don't notice it, but then it just slows down and finally craw...

File attributes lost with Zip and CopyFile

If you unpack files with the Zip plugin and the CopyFile() function, the unpacked files don't have ANY protection bits set (list shows it like --------). So the files aren't readable, deletable, writable, or executable. Tested on MorphOS. @REQUIRE "zip", {InstallAdapter = True} CopyFile("ram:test.zi...

XAD plugin and RAR archives

xad.hwp seems to fail to open any RAR archives on MorphOS with the 3rd party XAD client , even when the same archives can be opened with XADUnFile, XADopus, and Ambient. When trying with xad.hwp it doesn't seem to recognize the archive and a hit appears in the MorphOS debug log. Reproduce it, for ex...

Filename character encoding with the zip plugin

When you create archives with zip.hwp (zip.AddFile/NewName, for instance), it seems to accept only filenames in UTF-8 encoding, for example, when using umlauts. This is problematic, because Amiga/MorphOS programs can't show them correctly and you get typical UTF-8 garbage when listing or unpacking f...

XAD and tar.gz archives

I've been wondering why I get a filename inside a gzip archive as "unnamed.dat" with Hollywood's XAD plugin. Other programs show the name as the archive name, even XAD's own commandline tools. The XAD plugin seems to be only one showing this "unnamed.dat". I hunted it down now, and it seems that if ...

Directory dates when copying with XAD

If I unpack an archive with XAD and CopyFile(), all directories inside the archive will get an arbitrary date on them (04-Nov-02 10:30:00). Even if I define a non-existent path as the destination directory, the newly created dir gets this wrong date. They should get the current date or if real direc...

Re: Can I use EXISTS using jokers?

I'm not sure if wildcards are practical with an Exists function... don't you still want to know exact files? But anyway, here's my take :) ; An "Exists" function which works with (MatchPattern) wildcards, and is case insensitive. Function p_Exists(f$) Local d$ = PathPart(f$) f$ = LowerStr(FilePart(f...

Code: Select all

mui.Set("RATIO","Contents","90%")
This works for me on MorphOS. On which system you're testing it?

Re: How to program a fast graphics filter operation

How about putting the plotting between DisableLineHook() and EnableLineHook()? It should improve performance in this kind of situations at least. Didn't think better yet, but just a quick suggestion ;)
