software OS4   software OS4 : The shell command ShowFiles (sf) updated to version 0.993 - AOS4
   posted by marko on 23-Jan-2018 23:25:14 (645 reads)
New version of ShowFiles (sf) released.

CHANGES
Version 0.993: (Jan 2018)
- Added white color (pen 2) as foreground on executable files.
- Optimized the output listing, roughly about 41% faster now! Tested with 50 items (42 files + 8 dirs). The whole command before had a mean of 0.3399 s and after the optimizion now a mean of 0.2014 s. However don't trust these values too much though, as the values fluctuates pretty much.
- Made some minor changes to the three scripts.

Version 0.992: (Jan 2018):
- Added commands SETANSICOLORSON and SETANSICOLORSOFF, set either one depending on if you use ANSI colors or System Pens as your Palette in the Text Colors tab in Console Preferences.
- Added command SETBLUEBG for setting the background to blue. You might also want to set to use ANSI colors with the command SETANSICOLORSON.

Version 0.991: (Dec 2017):
- Fixed issue in MOST view with uneven columns after Object ID now returns numbers with more digts.
- Some changes to TRAIL and TRACE. Now TRACE has -i as one letter option and puts the symbol before the name. While TRAIL has -j and puts the symbol after the name.

Version 0.990: (Dec 2016):
- New NOCOMMENTS option added, for omitting comments in output listings. (Kind of suggested by Guillaume (zzd10h).)
- New NAMES option added, for displaying only names in the output listing. (Suggested by Severin.) (PS: both -l and -L for LESS are already taken/reser-ved)
- New TRACE option added, allows files to be "traced" with an initial character. Dirs with an initial "/", executable with an "*", and links with an (at-char).
- TRAIL is now opposite to TRACE, allows files to be "trailed" with a final character.
- Fixed issue, (sometimes) the pointed link would appear not visable.
- Bugfix: -E now works for DATEFIRST as expected.
- Added one letter option -R to REALDATES ("promoted" from command to option).
- Fixed issue, DATEFIRST -E added to documentation.
- One new-line added to the MOST output.
- Added alternative way of installation to readme, thanks Severin.
