2 Ideas...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have too ideas for new features :-)

 

Another NC-Clone have the feature of coping in the background. This feature would be very cool, because you could continue work with NDN.

 

I would also like a new backup-feature which can synchronize some important directories (Which doesn't backup all files every time but only files which have been changed or which are new. And maybe which uses zip, 7z or rar.)

 

Thank you for continuing NDN and also the port of DOS.

 

Schoene Gruesze aus Wien!

Hi Flo,

 

in fact the standard file copy window (not FTP) already can be put to the background,

just try to switch the windows as usual. There's only th problem that the current

background code in NDN does not "prioritize" fore/background tasks.

I want to work on this someday and add a little enhancement.

 

Hm, for a start you can try the copy option "Refresh old files".

I think this comes quite close to what you asked for.

Tell me if it that works for you.

 

Btw, I want to rewrite the copy code, maybe for the next release, so all VFS' will

use a single interface, hopefully working as good and with same options as the

current disk copy code.

PS: Has anyone ever worked with a DOS TCP/IP library, like WATTCP?

I wonder how close or similar it is to the standard Windows/Linux socket 2.0 interfaces.

If it is compatible to the standard sockets then implemting this for the DOS port of NDN

will not be too much work.
