Re: Two problems introduced by Update 5

Just wanted to report that after the kernel update just released, which includes a fixed dos.library, the (mis)behaviour remained the same.
Anyway, thanks for the update - much appreciated.

Nice news :)
Kiitos!

Re: Join reverse-concatenates files

I'd even say it ought to sort by default, or maybe even always instead of optionally. Yes. For completeness, maybe there could be the flags ASFOUND/S (i.e. as fed by the filesystem) and RANDOM/S (intentionally randomized). Whoever, back in 2.x, thought about adding the ability to use a pattern inst...

Re: Join reverse-concatenates files

Guys, it occurred to me that maybe the sorting was a 3.5/9 feature, but the manual indicates nothing, just like you said. Yesterday I executed a Join and I didn't get the result I naturally expected, so, not having the latest documentation at reach, I made a quick search on the net and the first use...

Join reverse-concatenates files

Hello, when the input files are specified to Join with wildcards, Join first sorts the files and then concatenates them. I have just noticed, though, that now the concatenation is performed in reverse (before, I'm pretty sure that the sort order was increasing). Here's a simple script for a quick te...

NoVSync
Tried now, but it makes no difference - which is no surprise since the feature I mentioned has just been introduced.
But thanks for the suggestion anyway :)

Anybody any other idea?

V-sync option?

Hello, while upgrading to Update 6, I've read in a changelog that some component (can't remember which) was changed so that the graphics refresh is now V-synced. I would like to ask: is there any option to switch the synchronization off? The reason is that to me the ensuing loss in smoothness of the...

Re: Moving symbolic links on SFS partition??

*but hopefully wrong, otherwise there is no shell/script-driven way to copy links. Perhaps you should add "...on an SFS/0 volume". It might be different on SFS/2 or JXFS. It is certainly different on FFS. Also, what C:List tells you is different from what the Workbench window tells you. The point w...
