New Release: V2.31.5222

Recommended Posts

Hi friends.

 

This release does not contain as much updates as I wanted it to have.

After all, it does contain some nice updates though.

Real life kept me busy, but it's getting "better". :)

 

I especially want to point out to NDNOLDAP, which mainly I wrote out of

interest for the "technology" of virtual device drivers.

The sources can be downloaded from the download page.

 

Whatsnew:

─════┤ v2.31.5222 DPMI32/WINDOWS/LINUX 12.12.09 ├═══════════════════════════─
[*] W32: dnos.CheckOS() didn't set opWin for WinNT+ OS's, D32 did
[+] added filetype unit and moved several functions there:
     dnexec.(Win32Program|GUIProgram)(), fileio.(IsElf|IsExecutable)()
     -> removed flpanelx.ExecFile_Rights, improved IsExecutable()
        to read the UNIX rights from the current filerec in panel
        or from the file on disk
[!] Exceptions were always unknown / unhandled
     -> drivers4.InitDrivers() sets system.ExceptObjProc to nil

CONFIGURATION FILES
[*] NDN.EXT/DW32: added Borland DLL to c,cpp[], NASM to asm[]
[*] NDN.MNU: added Winamp example
[*] NDN.QDR/W32: added more Windows directories
[*] NDN.HGL: updated the keywords for assembler files (Slava),
     added RegKeyWords[1-8] to the *.HGL syntax definition
[*] NDN.HGL: added standard TabSize (commented) and OptimalFill Off
     to several definitions
[*] New default option: File Manager.Setup.[X] Don't quote LFN, clipboard
     -> added commands.fm2DontQuoteClip to startup.FMSetup.Options2

DNEXEC/EXTERNAL VIEWER,EDITOR/EXECUTE EXT/LOCAL,GLOBAL MENUS
[-] Detection of WIN32 GUI executables didn't work anymore [A]
     -> dnexec._ExecString() didn't handle the file extension correctly
[-] Exec file search priority order was still not correct [A] (Dandv)
     -> fileio.SearchPathEnv() now doesn't use dos.FSearch() anymore,
        which scans all directories for one filename instead of scanning
        each directory for all filenames
[*] NDN.EXT/External user menu boxes didn't use desktops > 25 lines
     -> usermenu.ExecUserMenu() now uses menus.THugeMenuBox.InitAdv() to create
        the menu box
[-] EXEC/WNT: Executed filename had an trailing space (see "echo %0") [A]
     -> dnexec._ExecString().CheckWhatParams() didn't trim whitespace before
        enclosing in '"'
[*] D32/W32: Execution improvment if a program is no executable
     -> dnexec._ExecString().CheckWhatParams() allows non-executables
        to be started asynchronously like windos GUI applications;
        this automatically starts the associated Windows program
     -> dnexec._ExecFile() allows non-executables to be executed in
        Windows if there's no association in ndn.ext
     -> W32: Note that bat/cmd files cannot be started asynchronously
        for some reason (CreateProcess + Detached_Process):
        can someone help here?

WOA/WINOLDAP (D32/NT)
[+] Wrote a WinOldAp replacement for Windows NT+ Operating Systems, supporting
     PROTECTED and REAL MODE calls, usable in DPMI programs
     -> added winoldap.pas, winoldif.pas, ntvdmif.pas to extsrc\winoldap.dll
[+] Supports: MS Windows WinOldAP Clipboard, MS Windows95 Window Title
[*] D32/NT: Window title functions are no longer disabled
     -> removed WinNT checks from wintitle.(Set|Get|Init|Done)Title()
[+] Added "Release Current Virtual Machine Time-Slice" (Int 2F/AX=1680h)
     -> added winoldif.WoaReleaseVmTimeSlice() using windows.Sleep(5)

KEYBOARD
[+] Added Ctrl-';' {C}
     -> added commands.kbCtrlSemiColon, extended drivers.MyKeyShiftCodes[]
        and driversMyKeyScanCodes[]

TURBOVISION: VIEWS/DIALOGS/MENUS/OBJECTS/MESSAGES/DESKTOP
[*] removed this as it's not helpful
     [*] Inputlines [LEFT/RIGHT]: Pass the event on to the next view if at the
         beginning or the end of the inputline
         -> Modified dialogs.TInputLine.HandleEvent().kb(Left|Right)
[-] Huge menu boxes now correctly center [A]
     -> menus.THugeMenuBox.InitAdv() now uses Options.ofCentered to center
        the view (see W32.Context menu)
[-] Clicking on help buttons didn't work {C}
     -> dnutil.TDnApplication.HandleCommand().cmHelp didn't handle
        Event.InfoWord correctly
[+] Added reverse word/sentence operation {C}
     -> added stringsx.Reverse(Str|Buf)(), modified stringsx.FormatStrCase()
     -> added kbSemiColon to dialogs.TInputLine.HandleEvent()
[*] MENUS: When copying strings to clipboard the hotkey '~'s are removed
     -> added drivers3.CStr2Str(), used in menus.TMenuView.Execute().kbCtrlIns
[-] Non resizable views could be resized with mouse after [CTRL-F5] (Slava) [A]
     -> views.TView.DragView() didn't check whether move or grow were allowed,
        now checking the mode parameter

EDITOR
[+] Added reverse word/sentence operation {C}
     -> added commands.cmReverse(Block|String|Word)
     -> modified microed6.EditorHandleEvent() and micro_3.EdChangeCase(),
        micro_3.EdChangeBlockCase()

[-] fix foxpro's DateTime field {G} (Zaimskih)
     correct Edit Field with TimeDate value
[-] fix display integer fields {G}
[-] fix search in all fields {G}
[+] add Alt-F7 hotkey = SearchReverse {G}
[-] Fix incorrect show last modified date {G}

LANGUAGES
[*] Russian: updates/translations to the resources and online help {G}

FILE PANEL
[!] Context Menu:
     * crash when opening '..' and too many files in dir (HUNTER) [A]
       -> contextm.c didn't provide the LPITEMIDLIST itself but a reference to it
     * crashes on menu exit: drivers@493, views@1421, ... [A]
       - menus.THugeMenuBox.Init() didn't handle long title strings
       - contextm.p_OpenWinMenuInTV() inserted menu but didn't remove it
     * One of the above also fixed the usage of OleFlushClipboard(), which makes
       it possible to copy files via the context menus

LANGUAGES / RESOURCES (RCP) / HELP (TVHC)
[-] Screen saver setup title was missing characters [A] {C}
     -> last string in ndn.dlg was not correctly saved

I wish everyone of you a Merry Christmans and a Happy New Year.

See you again in January 2010.

 

All the best,

Stefan / AH

Wow, seems that you had fixed compatability issues of DOS DPMI version under Win2k/XP. Now it starts up fast and work smooth without any short hangs. Calling commandline batches from ndn.ext works fine too. So thank you for the xmass gift :)

p.s. where can I get source of winoldapp.dll? I'd like to try make own VDD in mingw32 so just for inspiration. I didn't find many tutorials covering a VDDs...

EDIT well I missed that, bottom of DL page...

Hi RayeR and Dan.

Nice to hear that it works for you. I feared that it would end up in more problems on other

systems that I tried to solve with it.

 

Hey AH, thanks for the Xmas version!

That directory is ?%UserProfile%\Eigene Dateien\ :)

Lol, yes!

I just added the english version of the path: ?%UserProfile%\My Documents\

Unfortunately there's no direct environment shortcut to this directory, as many programs

open that directory by default.

 

Bye,

Stefan / AH

A regression in this version compared to the previous one: running .PL executables that are are %PATHEXT% (and probably other non-exe/com/bat executables) launches a new cmd window.

 

I have added .PL to %PATHEXT% because so that I can use many Perl scripts easily from the command line:

 

reverse.pl lines.txt

 

(I don't have to type perl in front of "reverse.pl lines.txt"). However in this version, running that command will create a new cmd window that will close as soon as the script exits, so I can't see its output.

 

In Explorer -> Tools -> Foldr Options -> File Types, for PL files I have an Open action which runs

 

"C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe" "%1" %*

 

This has worked perfectly up to this NDN version by running the script "under" NDN, and showing the output in the Ctrl+O window.

My forward from BTTR forum

 

 

I tested it under Win7Ultimate and it works! But you have to copy the DLL into win\system32 directory. Then clipboard works fine.
