We're waiting for help file from deus-ex. :)
My one only contains changes in MultiArc word.
it also applies to "proper nouns", e.g.:
All mentioned examples are complex words containing more than one word inside. In contract to them e.g. multimeter or multivibrator are single words (though created with multi- prefix).

Sure, especially iPhone has multiple words. ;)
MultiArc is the name of that plug-in, and therefore is a "proper noun", and by definition needs to be treated as a single word, where you shouldn't apply any normal rules.
I won't continue arguing about orthography rules.
TC plugins: PCREsearch and RegXtract

But it contains more than just a word. :wink:

That's correct. But Multiarc looks a bit nicer for me than MultiArc. Anyway, I've changed it back in my sources so next release will contain MultiArc name again.

My current version with fixed plugin name:

MultiArc 1.4.1.100

I do not have Windows 8 installed, switched to Windows 10 recently.

I just noticed that in the about screen Vladimir Serdyuk's name isn't displayed properly either, his last name and the closing parenthesis ')' is hidden completely for me. I tried fixing it with a Hex-Editor using different values/chars in the area between Vladimirs first and last name, but without success, instead it would get worse. Anyone else having this issues, and if so which Windows version you are using?

You did miss a couple occurences, though, albeit these are a bit hidden. :wink:

It is resource problem (one of many), link controls were too small. I've enlarged them, looks almost fine for me. However I'm afraid your W10 will show even more gray backgrounds...
BTW it is not hex-editor, it is resource editor (like Resource Hacker) can help you fixing such issues.

Oops, I did it again! :D

Now I hope it was the last one!

MultiArc 1.4.1.101

BTW I've already fixed more than it was before. :D

When i see the file content with MA, TC block the file (f.e. C:\TEMP\zha2C72.tmp").
Then i have to quit from TC to delete it.
It seems to me that before had not happened.
It is possible to avoid it?

Hurdet,
I can reproduce it! It seems that file handle isn't closed by MA since even unloading plugins doesn't help. I'll take a look on it.

I see that under some conditions this file's handle is just don't released at all. Even more, this mode is always enabled for list commands (and optionally enabled for other ones in debug mode). However file is opened with FILE_FLAG_DELETE_ON_CLOSE flag so it is deleted automatically when TC is closed.

Oh, I see, object is not destroyed because of value returned by batch processing function edited by me, so every listing creates new temp file... Funny side-effects! For some reason close archive function doesn't free resources on error!

Please test this version:

MultiArc 1.4.1.106

Now files are only kept open while archiver is running and then I read them to memory (instead of creating file mapping) and close. Also I create zha*.tmp in $mltwcx temp dir.

Are you sure that the language file (English) is the correct one in .110? It seems older than what is in the .106 update.

Thanks for your work on this plugin.

Jon Canale,
Thank you for using it! :)

And yes, language file is correct, it is just from different branch. Don't look at version, it is only a number.
