As a result of this discussion I fetched the sources of both Ultra- and
I have made a very brief review of them and want to communicate my
While the basic idea of both are attractive, neither can be easily
integrated in ROS
as-is because of their dependencies, Ultra depends on Qt, and Super is
Pascal and depends on Borland's VCL.
To complicate matters further both are written under the precept that
have access to the shell source code, and therefore must employ hooking
to achieve the desired functionality. This is dead weight in the context
A much simpler implementation will suffice, and it needs to be written
in C or C++.
I have not reviewed the relevant parts of the ROS Explorer source (I
don't really know
it's structure), but as I see it we're just in need of better error
handling in Explorer.
We need a copy-error list to keep track of faulted copy/move operations.
When Explorer hits a snag, it should add the filepath and some flags to
and then commence with the rest of the files.
At the conclusion of the copy/move operations, the user should be notified,
if necessary, with the list of faulted files, and given some options on
For example, the files may be added to the boot-move list in SessionManager
if they faulted because they where locked, and so on.
I would be happy to look into this myself, but unfortunately my ROS
environment is currently in a shambles after multiple system crashes and
loss of code :-/
If someone with insight in Explorer's source feel like I do about the
of dropping an entire batch because of one little snag, then please look
Then again, as this is not a priority matter, perhaps it can wait a
I'll do it later (I guess You're as occupied as I am).
