@ts4242:

I have my History.txt in a subfolder of the TC install dir. When using the TC changes viewer and opening the History.txt from that folder I only get the left tree (with the versions) filled, but the details section (changes) is not. It only works for me when History.txt is in the actual TC install dir. Is the tool by any chance not using the actual file path but the TC installdir path to retrieve the details?

Regards, EricB

PS I reported this a few posts ago, but could not really pinpoint what went wrong. Opening the file in another folder seems to be the culprit.

The history.txt is always stored in the TC install dir, so why should a program look into other places ?

I always tidy up the TC main folder as much as possible, by moving stuff I do not need (like the parallel and USB port drivers, Win95/NT related stuff, uninstaller etc) to a subfolder. There are probably more people out there doing the same (likely suspect: Sir Silva :lol: ).

This habit revealed a probable programming flaw in the viewer, which I can work around, but I thought it was a good idea to point it out anyway. And I recall ts4242 already making a fix for the fact that the viewer hung immediately when history.txt was not found in the tc install dir, so he is aware of situations where the file is in some other folder.

This is normal for any new program, "TC Changes Viewer" now almost completed, so, i think there will be no new release in the near future.

Good work, Taher.

I tested "TC Changes Viewer 2.50 Beta 1":


"[x] Use pattern matching"

Lister> finds nothing
*Lister* > successful

Lister*middle> finds nothing
*Lister*middle* > successful


Suggestions, if I may:
Maybe surround "pattern matching"-search on default by *s?



Improvement idea:
And why have I to use stars at all?
Why not just a wildcard-search by option, without bothering the user to enter stars everywhere?
Or on default anyway, if user enters more than one word.


Advanced feature idea:
And please note that "*middle*Lister*" will find nothing, please allow find even in reverse order.


Or do I miss something?


Additionally testing on two monitors, just FYI:
Search dialog remembers monitor (but doesn't follow the main window, just remembers my moving)
About- and Options dialog doesn't remembers monitor, always appears on my main monitor.

If you are searching for "copy file", how can i know whether you mean exact match or pattern match "copy * file"?

Text editor with regex capability, matches "lister.*middle" but not "middle.*lister", Do you know any program do that?
