This release of FileTools moves the Directory Scanner (Blocking) and Image Downloader (Blocking) patches to this plugin (so remove those plugins after installing this plugin).

It also features 10.6 compatibility in both 32 bit and 64 bit modes of operation. It still works in 10.5 as well.

Some minor performance improvements were made, a memory leak in the Directory Scanner was fixed, and a few String/File operations should now handle UTF8 better.

Release: File Tools, v20080220

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20080220
Release Notes

This FileTools beta adds the "Kineme File Info" patch.

The File Info patch can tell you if a file exists, what kind of file it is (file, directory, symlink, etc), how big it is, when it was created, and when it was last modified. This information is helpful for intelligent caching systems.

Will probably freak out in Tiger if you feed it a non-absolute, non-~ filename.

Release: File Tools, v20071211

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071211
Release Notes

This is an update to the File Tools beta that includes some new patches.

New Patches included:

  • Text File Writer — used to be a stand-alone plugin
  • Structure To File — saves structure contents to a file..
  • Structure From File — loads a structure from a file (saved with Structure To File)

Currently, the structure loader does not preserve the order of items in the structure. This means that items at a given index won't necessarily be at the same index when they're loaded. To get around this, access the structure by Key only. Working on a fix for this...
