Re: 4g+ file on exfat drive

The original icon information window (when RAWBInfo inactive) is even worse. Displays -2 bytes for size. That code is even older and since barely anyone is using the old, built in WBInfo() in workbench.library there is not much motivation to update it, and it is also more work to update since it de...

Re: 4g+ file on exfat drive

What are your versions of RAWBInfo and exFATFileSystem? I checked my 4.1 FE update #1 installation and the latest public version of RAWBInfo is version 53.19 from 2014, which still uses the old FileInfoBlock based examine method. I replaced all the FIB code for version 53.22, which was released to ...

Re: 4g+ file on exfat drive

What are your versions of RAWBInfo and exFATFileSystem? You could also try listing the file directly with the list command ("list USB0D:xxx.iso") and see if it outputs the correct size (if you do this also report what version your list command is). The latest RAWBInfo should be able to han...

Re: Bug in Multiview Search requester

As far as corrupted characters popping up in the string gadgets of the ASL requesters this is IMHO probably due to the way that asl.library interacts with the string gadgets and is IIRC not something that is easily fixed. Either any code that modifies the string contents should be made to never leav...

Re: WIKI errors for sift.c example in IFFParse Library docs

1. variable names all in lower case, the words joined by underscores (such as "engine_water_temperature"); and I don't really have a preference either way regarding variable naming, but in my own code I usually use all lower case letters for local variables and reserve use of capitalised ...

Re: WIKI errors for sift.c example in IFFParse Library docs

Anyone else think the indentation style of those iffparse examples should be changed to something more easily readable?

I'm fine with either:

Code: Select all

if (expression) {
    blah();
}
or:

Code: Select all

if (expression)
{
    blah();
}
The current style gives me a headache just from looking at it.

Re: Outline Font OT_BaseLine data not found

This should be about the same method that diskfont.library uses to calculate the font->tf_Baseline value:

Re: REQS_MaxChars - wrong documentation?

Because REQS_MaxChars must be a maximum of REQS_Buffer - 1 That's what the autodoc said but it isn't true for any version of "requester.class" that is tagged in the SVN. Most likely the behaviour was changed very early on and the autodoc entry was simply not updated to reflect this. I've ...

Re: REQS_MaxChars - wrong documentation?

If REQS_MaxChars has worked like it does now since the beginning and it's not just a recent bug then the more appropriate action would be to correct the documentation. Less chance of breaking existing programs that way. BTW the autodoc entry for STRINGA_MaxChars doesn't mention at all whether the nu...
