Re: Wrong count

Recursive comparison can only show empty directories (if this is enabled), That's ok. Nothing to object. so the word "empty" in unnecessary. I disagree on this. I mean: I was indeed fooled (don't count on my memory! :wink: ) and, as I wrote, to add a little word isn't such a big effort. :) The next...

Re: Wrong count

Out of curiosity, I checked my drive and counted 18 empty directories. Hardly surprising. :? Why would counting of directories not count all of them, every time? Because, if I remember well, the definition of "empty" of EDP depends on the "ignores" and/or is a bit odd. Look at this thread: https://w...

Re: Wrong count

I have no way of knowing it but it sounds like you expected a different result. Ehm... yes! I didn't expect the number of directories should change. Or, perhaps, it could become much bigger. :o Subdirectories of the root: 31 were and 31 still are. Does you folder recursively contain 18 empty direct...

Slow delete

As I already wrote, I use EDP to manage my backups, so it happens that I'm comparing two 1 TB disks, all the files and subdirs at once. While synching them, of course I copy, overwrite and delete files. Copying and overwriting small files is a flash. I can't chronometer it. Deleting even a single fi...

Wrong count

I use EDP to manage my backups, so it happens that I'm comparing two 1 TB disks. Both disks are equal (now) and they have 31 subdirs in the root (not counting "System Volume Information"). With "do not compare sudirectories at all" EDP says: total: 31 directories, 3 files. Good. With "compare sudire...

ebook plugin

For a moment I considered to adapt the open source sumatrapdf https://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/free-pdf-reader.html to work as a (pdf), ePub, mobi, DjVu, XPS, CHM, CBZ e CBR converter to text to be used as an EDP plugin. It should be easy. And if you need to compare also AZW, there's the possibility...

Re: Plugins or not plugins #2

Could be something in your options. Quite possible. Anyway, please take care of the scenario: plugin -> no plugin -> (auto)recompare -> change -> save -> message! These cases instead are ok: no plugin -> plugin -> (auto)recompare -> no plugin -> (auto)recompare -> change -> save -> ok no plugin -> ...

Plugins or not plugins #2

Let me refresh this old topic: https://www.prestoforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1884&p=4699&hilit=plug+ins#p4699 In this period I must use widely astyle as a plugin in order to simplify the detection of the differences.

So I had no hope trying. :!:
Well, luckily now we have the (relatively) new syntax that works.
And it's available for XP too. :wink:
Thank you.

AStyle

I need to use Artistic Style as a plugin in order not to become mad comparing some source files that were reformatted. :roll: I set up a plugin with astyle.exe and "< $INPUTFILEPATH" as argument. Used alone, "astyle.exe < foo.c" works perfectly and puts its output on the stdout. When used inside EDP...
